    I remember watching the Christmas shows (in black and white on a very small television) back in the 1950s, always had good guests. I didn't start to appreciate him until I got older. He, along with Perry Como was one of the smoothest of singers. There seemed to be a number of them at the time, Mel Torme (The Velvet Voice) and Tony Bennet.
    I heard Andy Williams sing once without backing, just by himself. His voice was as good as when recorded.

  3. As an old fogey, will the current vocalists appeal to as wide a range of listeners? Williams, Como, Sinatra, have left behind perennial songs, will Snoop doggy dog, WillIam, or Beiber do the same? I shan't miss him as such; his records will remain.

  4. If it's any consolation, I miraculously turn in to the croonmeister after a skin-full of Moretti, so all is not lost. 'You're just too good to be true etc.'
  5. Well it isn't now.Only Tom Jones to go.
  6. You can add Matt Monro to that list.

    I totally agree. Matt Monro was one of the most underappreciated singers of his time. Wonderful voice, and lives on with 'The Italian Job', as well as 'Quiller Memorandum'You have good taste.
