Greatest American Waltzes is a studio album recorded by American entertainer Connie Francis.

Background[edit]

An album containing waltzes popular in the US had already been planned in 1961 but had been abandoned in favor of other album projects.[1]

A second attempt was made in 1963 and was recorded on June 18 and 19 that year at Owen Bradley's studio Bradley Film & Recording in Nashville. Arrangements were provided by Bill McElhiney who also conducted the sessions. Background vocals came from Millie Kirkham and The Jordanaires.[2]
