The Other Side of Me is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the summer of 1975 by Columbia Records. Although it did not make it onto Billboard magazine's Top LP's & Tapes chart in the US, it did spend one week on the UK album chart in October 1975 at number 60.[4]

The UK version of the album included one additional track, "Love Said Goodbye" which had entered Billboard's list of the 40 most popular Easy Listening songs of the week in the US in the issue dated January 11, 1975, and reached number 24 over the course of seven weeks.[5] The first song released from the US version of the album was "Sad Eyes", which entered the Easy Listening chart in the October 11, 1975, issue and stayed there for seven weeks, peaking at number 11, and the title track from the album entered the UK singles chart on March 6, 1976, for a three-week stay that took the song to number 42.[4][5]

The North American version of The Other Side of Me was released on compact disc for the first time as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on February 19, 2002, the other album being Williams's Columbia release from the fall of 1974, You Lay So Easy on My Mind.[6] Collectables included this CD in a box set entitled Classic Album Collection, Vol. 2, which contains 15 of his studio albums and two compilations and was released on November 29, 2002.[7]
