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)

Product Description:

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

Rating 5.0 Held Over/Leaving On A Jet Plane Music Lover: from Perry, GA US -- January, 10, 2004

These are 2 very different albums.Held Over is instrumental and Leaving On A Jet Plane Is all vocal.You will want to pick this up if your a Faith fan.This is the first 2 on 1 cd by Faith to feature 2 different versions of the same song on the same cd(Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head 1st and 2 arrangements)

Held over features Faith's instrumental versions of Midnight Cowboy,Jean,The Theme From Z,Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head(1st arrangment instrumental)and others.

Leaving On A Jet Plane features Faith's female chrous and the orchestra on Leaving On A Jet Plane,Everybody's Talkin',Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head(2nd arrangement vocal,Something(2nd arrangement vocal)and others.Faith's 1st arrangment Instrumental version of Something is on The Beatles Album/Jesus Christ Superstar also from Collectibles.Leaving on a jet plane is prehaps one of the most lovely you will here by Faith aside from Perry Botkin Jr's instrumental version.Both Perry's and Percy's versions got a lot of airplay on beautiful music stations.

You will want to pick this up for the 2 versions of the same song on 1 cd raindrops as well as because both of these albums has some great music on them and are collectors items if your a Faith fan.
