Description by OLDIES.com:
"The Beatles Album" from 1970 is the Faith tribute to songs by Lennon and McCartney; Faith takes it slow and uses the strings as well as solo instruments such as flugelhorn and sax. The full orchestra is heard in "Jesus Christ, Superstar," an Andrew Lloyd-Weber favorite. Especially beautiful is the Faith rendition of "I Don't Know How To Love Him," and you'll enjoy the high spirited "Everything's Alright." (Bill Halvorsen)

Originally released on Columbia, these two Percy Faith albums zero in on easy listening versions of songs by the Beatles and from Jesus Christ Superstar. The rather formulaic treatments work best on the compositions of Lennon and McCartney, especially "The Fool on the Hill" and "Yesterday." The 12 highlights from the original score of Jesus Christ Superstar include lackluster versions of "Superstar," "Everything's Alright," and "I Don't Know How to Love Him." Not an essential purchase by a long shot, but this disc will provide kitschy moments for your next cocktail party. In 2002, Collectables began reissuing Faith's Columbia titles as two-fers with original cover art and song sequences. ~ Al Campbell
