Welcome!

This site provides an interactive discography to the recorded works of Percy Faith.

We're now the home the Percy Faith pages, maintained by Bill Halvorsen. Bill's subsite features dozens of audio and video files, articles, interviews, and commentary.

Full audio is available for more than 900 recordings. They can be played in the United States but are not available in all countries. Sony Music owns and provides most of the recordings so I don't know why they restrict access to certain countries.

All of Percy Faith's recordings as a solo artist were added in late 2015. I'm slowly updating all the backings for other artists (e.g. Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett). Please be patient... I've gotten through 1950 but still have a couple of hundred to manually add.

Please check out samples of Percy's quadraphonic recordings that are currently available on SACD.

I was cleaning out my basement and came across this long-forgotten item from my collection: Percy Faith as guest conductor on The Andre Kostelanetz Show back in 1944. These programs (and many more) are available for free download.

Remember When (compilation CD)

While perusing Alan's discography, I came across an obscure reference to a various-artists compilation containing Percy's second arrangement of "Swedish Rhapsody." Of course, I couldn't resists buying a copy...

Percy Faith at homeI haven't listened to a Percy Faith album in more than six months so I took advantage of a rainy day here in Manassas to put up my feet and play a few sides. As I looked over album jackets, I was reminded about something we lost when converting from Lp to CD: all that space that the packaging afforded for photos and liner notes. Even when photos were included on CD reissues, they were often reproduced too small to make out any detail.

I've finally embarked on the project to preserve some of those old photos. Most of what I have is from old Lps so the scans aren't very good. If you have old publicity photos that you'd like to scan and share, please send me an email.
