1973's album "Clair," features great pop selections as Justin Hayward's (The Moody Blues) "Nights In White Satin." "New Thing" begins with an extended version of Chuck Mangione's "Hill Where The Lord Hides" and the orchestra gets it's "groove." There are strong melodic popular tunes as well as a sprinkling of standards needed the Faith touch - "The Way We Were" and "Stranger On The Shore." (Bill Halvorsen)
