I`ve been trying to find a digital version of this Andy Williams medley for years and here it is:

The album was released as Raindrops... in the US and Bridge... elsewhere. Clive Davis hated the concept (aided and abetted by Mason Williams [no relation]) but Andy was inspired by the Webb-produced Harris albums to try something different.
It was alleged that the "concept" side of the LP exactly halved the normal sales figures. I doubt it but who cares? It was, as all of Andy`s recordings, just beautiful.
