More Majestic sounds from Percy Faith

Well, two more tracks, anyway. There are four, in all, on the second Percy Faith and His Orchestra set on Royale, but the sound on All Through the Night and Tia Juana is atrocious. Possibly, this is due to wear, but I suspect the pressing and transfers are mostly to blame. Good tracks, but I don't want to subject anyone to such awful fidelity. As it is, I'll be years with an audio therapist working past this awful experience.

By the way, do you notice anything interesting about the cover?

Namely, that it looks an awful lot like Set No. 1?

Just a little, no? Anyway, here is Temptation, from 1947, and Noche Caribe, from... same year, maybe.

Temptation (Freed-Brown), Percy Faith and His Orchestra, 1947. Originally released on the Majestic label.

Noche Caribe (Faith), Percy Faith and His Orchestra, 194?, Majestic label.

More lounge sounds to come!

You're welcome! At the moment, I'm hoping I can find a more reliable file-storage place, so that I can get some more stuff up!
