Andy Williams scored the biggest recording contract in history.
During the 1960s, Andy Williams became one of the most popular vocalists in the US and was signed to what was at that time the biggest recording contract in history.
He was primarily an album artist, and at one time he had earned more gold albums than any solo performer except Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis and Elvis Presley.
By 1973 he had earned as many as 18 gold album awards. Among his hit albums from this period were Moon River, Days of Wine and Roses (number one for 16 weeks in mid-1963).
Amongst the artists featured at this website with oldies but goldies songs, Andy was probably the most 'visible' back in the '60 on account of his famous TV show, The Andy Williams Show.
