I purchased my first Percy Faith album, All-Time Greatest Hits, back in the 1980s when I was a member of the now-defunct Columbia Record Club. It was pleasant to listen to but my musical interests were mainly in pop/rock and Ray Conniff's "big band with voices" albums from the 1950s. Percy Faith got shelved along with other record club purchases, somewhere between The Cars Greatest Hits and Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth.
In the late 1990s, I was music shopping and came across the Collectables 2-on-1 reissue of Tara's Theme From Gone With The Wind & Jealousy so I decided to give Percy another try. The Jealousy album hooked me and now I have practically everything Percy Faith ever recorded.
This site is intended to help document some of my Percy Faith collection which consists of 78s, 45s, Lps, CDs and a few tapes. It is a work in progress. I don't know when I'll ever find time to scan all the Lp covers but I'm doing ok with CDs.
I'm a horrible email correspondent. However, feel free to email me and I'll try to respond.
