Percy Faith recorded the most popular version of the theme, an instrumental orchestral arrangement, at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City. It was released in September as a single on Columbia Records, credited to "Percy Faith and his Orchestra," prior to the November release of the film A Summer Place.. The single was not an immediate hit and did not enter the Billboard Genre: Easy listening.
such a great compilation. playing it always brings a smile to my face. it really has a "summer" feeling. one of my favourite soundtrack lps (never watched the movie though). excellent selection of punk / new wave era songs of very well known and relativly unkown artists & songs. translucent yellow vinyl. get this lp .

The rest of A SUMMER PLACE is heavy on the movie songs-"Moon River" from BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, "The Windmills of Your Mind" from THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, etc.-but it shows Faith's facility in a variety of styles. If you like this sort of thing-even if you don't admit it to others-A SUMMER PLACE is a handy precis of one of the greats in the field.
