Percy Faith's Greatest Hits is a midline-priced collection that highlights some of Percy Faith's best-known and most popular performances for Columbia Records, including "Theme From a Summer Place" "Swedish Rhapsody," "Delicado," and "They Can't Take That Away From Me." A handful of the songs from 16 Most Requested Songs are replicated here, but tunes like "Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet," "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," and "Song From Moulin Rouge (Where Is Your Heart?)" are strikingly absent. It's far from a perfect retrospective of Faith's career, but Percy Faith's Greatest Hits is still a nice sampler of familiar items, and it may satisfy the needs of some casual fans who only want (some of) the hits.
Theme from "A Summer Place" reminds me of everything wonderful about my childhood. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the 50's and 60's. Lawn sprinklers, warm summer twilight, fresh groceries and just the magical feeling of being alive and having no worries. Superb melody and arrangement. A flawless production. Thank you Mr. Faith.

Theme from "A Summer Place" is my favorite among Mr. FAith's nstrumental. It's very sentimental and sooo dreamy.
Mrs. Wormer.... I'm so glad you came...
Wanna set the mood for an old school summer night martini party by the pool? This will put everyone in the right frame of mind. Not to mention the inevitable Animal House one-liners all night. Theme from "A Summer Place" should be renamed "Otter's Theme".
