As mentioned before, here is HATTORI MELODIES, recorded in LA but released only in Japan on CBS/Sony.  You can see (not very well) Percy Faith's autograph for me.  To make a long story short, I brought this album to the second concert in the spring of 1974 to DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, and presented this to Percy as he had mentioned in a letter that he had not seen the cover (he went on to mention that he'd surely be sending for some copies!)  So I thought he'd get a kick out of seeing it, and he did.  He asked me if I had a pen - I didn't - so he brought out his felt pen that was drying out rather badly, but autographed the album, a treasured keepsake for me!  The caption reads "For Bill - A Pleasure for you to be one of us!  Percy Faith"
