The set was advertised vigourously in the national press from 5th November 1980 through into 1981.

Japanese original release. Box set includes seven original albums "Andy Williams' Dear Heart," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Born Free," "Love, Andy," "Honey," "Happy Heart," and "Love Theme from The Godfather" plus a bonus disc "Andy Williams Live In Japan," featuring live recordings from the concerts held at Osaka Festival Hall on May 15 & 16, 1973. This bonus CD becomes available as CD for the first time in the world. Features remastering and cardboard sleeve faithfully replicating its US LP jacket design. Comes with lyrics and a description.
