In the '50s, '60s, and '70s, beloved pop singer Andy Williams was a regular presence on television, and each year he would host a holiday special filled with songs of the Christmas season. One of the regular highlights of Williams' Christmas specials was the appearance of his siblings Bob Williams, Dick Williams, and Don Williams, with the brothers harmonizing on classic carols. In 1970, Andy, Bob, Dick, and Don got together in a recording studio to make an album of some of their Yuletide favorites. While The Williams Brothers Christmas Album wasn't a big seller, it became a prized collector's item among fans of Andy Williams and Christmas music, and in 2014 the album was finally reissued on compact disc. The album includes such familiar tunes as "White Christmas," "Jingle Bells," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and a 17-minute medley of popular carols. ~ Mark Deming
