Description by OLDIES.com:
Collectables brings the opportunity to hear Percy's instrumental enhancements to tunes from two of Broadway's under-recognized musicals. Jules Styne's "Subways Are For Sleeping" from 1961 is a collection of show-stopper tunes, melodies that can occupy your mind for days! Richard Rodger's "Do I Hear A Waltz?" brings up a show not well known, but worth remembering and discovering, as it contains some beautiful tunes, and perhaps Percy Faith at the zenith of his arranging career.

2 LPs on 1 CD: SUBWAYS ARE SLEEPING (1961)/DO I HEAR A WALTZ? (1965).
Liner Note Authors: Curtis Brown; Percy Faith.
Recording information: 10/16/1961-02/18/1965.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Percy Faith LPs, Subways Are for Sleeping and Do I Hear a Waltz, originally issued in 1961 and 1965, respectively. The flowing combination of these Broadway scores, by Jule Styne and Rodgers/Sondheim, provide a continuity that can sometimes be jarring when combined on two-fers. Highlights of the 24 tracks include "Who Knows What Might Have Been?," "I Said It and I'm Glad," "Someone Like You," and "A Perfectly Lovely Couple." This is an enjoyable and recommended reissue from the massive Percy Faith catalog originally released on Columbia Records. ~ Al Campbell

Subways Are For Sleeping Percy Faith Music Lover: Lynn Strong from Honolulu HI. -- September, 26, 2006
I did not recognize most of the songs, but I found that it made no difference, it sounded terrific. I was raised with this kind of music I just can't stay away from it. You can't go wrong with this, the price is right, and plenty of tracts.
