Here are some great Percy Faith postings from YouTube:

The first is The Master conducting his 1953 #1 smash hit The Song From Moulin Rouge on a live television appearance in the 1950s:

The second is the actual studio version of The Song From Moulin Rouge, with the lead vocals by the great Felicia Sanders; this song was on the charts for an astounding 24 weeks, peaking at #1 and holding that top position for an incredible 10 straight weeks. This was by far Percy's greatest chart hit:

The third is Percy Faith's great 1960 hit single Theme For Young Lovers. This song was later re-recorded and released on the 1963 LP Themes For Young Lovers. Percy's glorious string section really shines through on this beautiful and poignant song:

The last is Percy's rockin' and rollin' version of I Will Follow You. It was released on the aforementioned 1963 LP Themes For Young Lovers and it clearly shows that Percy Faith could really rock:

Themes For Young Lovers leads off with a great version of The Drifters 1963 hit Up On The Roof.  Another album I wish I still had!
