Country Bouquet/Disco Party

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory McIntosh
This two-fer set combines the Percy Faith albums Country Bouquet and Disco Party on one compact disc. Both albums offer up what Faith's fans have come to expect: the Percy Faith Orchestra dishing out heady arrangements of popular songs of the time, with this set focusing on songs from the mid-'70s.

Both albums offer up what Faith's fans have come to expect: the Percy Faith Orchestra dishing out heady arrangements of popular songs of the time, with this set focusing on songs from the mid-'70s. It cannot be argued that Faith was less than a talented arranger; his subtlety and attention to detail are remarkable and rampant over the course of both of these recordings as he runs through hits such as Marty Robbins' "El Paso" and Neil Diamond's "Cherry, Cherry," and while Country Bouquet is about as safe as any Percy Faith recording, on Disco Party Faith embraced a slightly more experimental edge by employing distorted electric guitars and analog synthesizers. The foreground of the album is still his lush orchestra, but it deserves mention that Faith was willing to let loose despite his conservative audience. Country Bouquet/Disco Party is mostly an exercise in super-kitsch, but moments do shine through, mostly on the Disco Party album, suggesting that, had he taken the chance, Percy Faith could've been a weird American contemporary of Ennio Morricone.
