Description by OLDIES.com:
"Joy" is a wide-ranging collection of tunes by the full Percy Faith orchestra, all the way from Michelle LeGrand's tearfully beautiful "Brian's Song" to Isaac Hayes' "Theme from "Shaft." Also from 1972, "Day By Day" is a combination of orchestra - only, orchestra plus chorus, or orchestra plus wordless chorus, more great music from films and popular songs. (Bill Halvorsen)

2 LPs on 1 CD: JOY (1972)/DAY BY DAY (1972).
Originally released on Columbia Records.
Joy/Day by Day pairs two Percy Faith albums recorded for Columbia in 1972. Joy throws some timely oddities into Faith's patented Broadway interpretations, including Isaac Hayes' "Theme From Shaft." Day by Day follows the same pattern, but without the contemporary reach of Joy. ~ Wade Kergan
