Hearing Percy Faith once again at his best was like a visit from a long-lost, cherished friend. I'd literally been waiting years for the "R&J" reissue as I had enjoyed the vinyl LP (playing the daylights out of it) in my youth. Those outstanding old songs sound just as satisfying now as the first time I'd heard them. From the jazzy melancholy of "Without Her" (this had been done as a Herb Alpert vocal solo years ago and sounds great with the female chorus as "Without Him"), to the warm and fuzzy "Love Can Make You Happy", to the mournful "One", to the toe-tapping rhythms of "Stormy", "Promises, Promises", and "Hello Tomorrow", to the sexy "I Love How You Love Me" and "A Quiet Day", to the older-but-wiser anthem "Both Sides Now", this CD was a seamless pleasure to listen to. Artistry like Percy Faith's simply doesn't exist anymore. These reissues are all we have left, and they are a treasure. This CD will put in a lot of hours on my player, and I am looking forward to every moment.
This is a highly recommended cd by me.Both of these albums feature Percy Faith's female chrous and both got a lot of air play on beautiful music stations.Those were the days is one of my favorites as it features songs such as stormy,those were the days,I love how you love me,little green apples,both sides now and others.Faith's orchestra strings are heavy in this album and blend with the female chrous.You will love I love how you love as it is so lovely.I believe that little green apples is instrumental with the worless chrous but it's been a while since i heard it.I'm glad that Collectibles is finally releasing this on a cd.I found the cassette a couple of years ago and the tape hiss got so loud I could no longer hear the songs.I haven't heard the romeo and juilet album but I can't wait to get it for Faith's version of without her sung as without him by the female chrous.I know that romeo and juliet is all instrumental though.Now that this has been delayed until April 13th hopefully it will not be delayed past that as I can't wait to pick this up.Yes Percy Faith is known for his instumental beautiful music but sometimes he used a female vocal chrous.Even with the chrous though he often used heavy strings.
This CD will be one of the best combos (2 LP's on 1 CD) releases on Collectables Records.
These are two of the best records Percy Faith ever made on the seventies. The famous female chorus by Faith is well represented such tracks as "Stormy", "Without Her", the superb arrangement for the Bacharach's classic "April Fools" and the unforgettable "Both Sides Now" on a special Faith's accent. The magic Percy Faith's sound is here twice... Two magnificent albuns on 1 CD !
I recommend this title, sincerely. You should try it...
