Love, Andy is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released to coincide with the NBC special of the same name. The LP had a mix of covers of old and recent hits that included two songs from the 1940s that also had chart success in 1966 via Chris Montez: “The More I See You” and “There Will Never Be Another You”.

It entered the UK album chart in May 1968 and spent one week at number one over the course of 22 weeks.

In the UK the song chosen as the single for release was a cover of Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes off You”, which got as high as number five.
