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

We're now the home of Bill Halvorsen's Percy Faith pages. 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.

His obituary provides details of his professional career and personal life.

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.
