Another in the set of Percy Faith two-fers released by Collectables, Held Over! Today's Great Movie Themes/Leaving On a Jet Plane is one of the nicer sets in that it combines an album of Faith's renditions of film scores with an album of his pop renditions, therefore giving a heartier glimpse into Percy Faith's abilities. Generally, his orchestra sounds more at home covering the film music than the pop music, but there are some inspired takes, most notably the instrumental sections of the Fred Neil composition "Everybody's Talkin'"; however, when the vocals come in, the song loses its immediacy and desperation.
