Description by OLDIES.com:
The late 60's weren't all rock and roll - this album brings Hollywood together with the Faith orchestral treatment, starting with "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," an essential Bacarach tune for "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." The second track brings Faith's touch to the theatrical smash film "Midnight Cowboy" by John Barry. There is a wistful treatment of "Come Saturday Morning" from "The Sterile Cukoo" and many more. The next tracks hail from the same year, and include the opportunity to hear "Easy Rider" with the female chorus, where it is instrumental in "Held Over." Same with "Raindrops" - and a different tune is included from "Midnight Cowboy," "Everybody's Talkin'." (Bill Halvorsen)

2 LPs on 1 CD: HELD OVER! TODAY'S GREAT MOVIE THEMES (1970)/LEAVING ON A JET PLANE (1970).
Liner Note Authors: Gene Lees; Bill Keane.
Arranger: Percy Faith.
Another in the set of Percy Faith two-fers released by Collectables, Held Over! Today's Great Movie Themes/Leaving On a Jet Plane is one of the nicer sets in that it combines an album of Faith's renditions of film scores with an album of his pop renditions, therefore giving a heartier glimpse into Percy Faith's abilities. Generally, his orchestra sounds more at home covering the film music than the pop music, but there are some inspired takes, most notably the instrumental sections of the Fred Neil composition "Everybody's Talkin'"; however, when the vocals come in, the song loses its immediacy and desperation. ~ Gregory McIntosh
