Description by OLDIES.com:
This is the Long Playing album from 1961 that first carried, in stereo, the Faith hit 1960 "Theme from A Summer Place" composed by Max Steiner. From another Steiner-scored film, the majestic "Tara's Theme" (from Gone With The Wind) is given full orchestral treatment. "Jealousy" from 1960 that brings twelve standards (including the title song) unique arrangements that often have hints of style borrowed from the classical composers. (Bill Halvorsen)

One of several two-fer reissues of Percy Faith's classic Columbia LPs on the Collectables reissue label, TARA'S THEME/JEALOUSY combines two of the Toronto-born orchestra leader/arranger/producer's best-selling albums on one disc. TARA'S THEME, from 1961, is most notable for containing the original version of Faith's signature song, the gently swaying, instantly recognizable "Theme From A Summer Place," his biggest hit. The rest of the album, which is primarily composed of movie themes, is equally remarkable. JEALOUSY is a darker and more brooding affair, featuring stately but dramatic renditions of a dozen classic love songs.
This disc is also available as half of the PERCY FAITH: A LEGEND AND HIS MUSIC box set, along with the CAMELOT/MY FAIR LADY reissue.
