A magazine long ago called "Bon Voyage" a collection of "Paris and Rome favorites." So it is, and the collection is subtitled "Continental Souvenirs." "Carefree" tells us more about Percy Faith's personality than his travelogues - with all selections written AND arranged by Faith. "Go-Go-Po-Go," a strongly rhythmic AND melodic Faith original that was the "B" side of the single of "Summer Place;" now it's in this collection with several other great Faith originals, including "Lisa," taken from a radio play Faith scored years ago.

"Percy Faith is the master of arranging selections by other composers ~ take for instance this original two LP's on one CD "Bon Voyage" (CS 8214 in 1960) and "Carefree" (CS 8360 in 1961-all songs composed by Percy Faith) ~ his tasteful treatments always highlights the quality of the composition, ultimately making them a hit all over again. Faith's formula was always to keep the arrangements fresh and new with his distinctive signature style ~ with the wave of his baton, the Percy Faith award winning orchestra is ready to strut their stuff.Percy Faith was a staple of outstanding music during the '50s, '60s and '70s ~ his sound is unmistakable, which compiles of lush string orchestral performances ~ a treat for the ears ~ "MORGEN", "ANEMA E CORE", "MON ONCLE", "LA VIE EN ROSE", "UNDER PARIS SKIES" and "ARRIVDERCI, ROMA" Maestro Faith meets the challenge with flying colors ~ listen for Faith's originality and warmth with every cue.Second half of the album consists of eleven Percy Faith compositions ~ "BLUE IS THE NIGHT", "BOUQUET", "BRAZILIAN SLEIGH BELLS", "CAREFREE", "CARESS", "GO-GO-PO-GO", "GOIN' HOME TRAIN", "LISA", "NO ONE BUT YOU", "PIZZICATO POLKA" and "QUIA QUIA" ~ get ready to be entranced by an audio bouquet of sound ~ Faith's scoring is wonderful and miraculous with full bodied dynamics, sends his fans into a musical frenzy ~ Percy has such a zestful enthusiasm, sharing with the listener, not only what they're looking for, but then some! Just great to have so many Faith's songs under one roof. Go ahead, dive in and enjoy every morsel...gotta love it!Total Time 68:02 on 23 Tracks ~ Collectables 7563 ~ (9/16/2003)"
