Liner notes

CHANGING WITH THE TIMES
Being a play in two scenes, with an epilogue in which is contained the moral.
TIME: A year ago.
PLACE: Johnny's Room.
FATHER THYME: Will you please turn your radio down, Johnny? Don't you youngsters ever listen to good music nowadays? Why in my day we had music. Real melody, like . . .
JOHNNY THYME: (factually): YES, WE HAVE NO BANANAS, SHOO FLY PIE AND APPLE PAN DOWDY, MAIRZY DOATS. You mean like those, Dad?
FATHER THYME: No, hang it all, we could hear the melody in those days. They didn't throw in all that bangin' and twangin'.
JOHNNY THYME: Have you heard this new Percy Faith album, THEMES FOR YOUNG LOVERS, Dad?
FATHER THYME: Percy Faith. Now you're talkin' about a real musician. Great arranger, that Faith, and a superb conductor. What has he got to do with bangin' and twangin'.
JOHNNY THYME: Nothing, Dad, but in this new album of his he does all our favorite tunes, new songs every one of them, with a big orchestra, a great beat, and melody to spare. It's really beautiful.
FATHER THYME: This I have to hear!
TIME: The present
PLACE: Father Time's den.
FATHER THYME: Oh, Johnny, on the way home from the office I happened to pick up this album I thought might interest you. Let's see now, YOU DON'T OWN ME, WIVES AND LOVERS, FORGET HIM, BLUE ON BLUE, SEE THE FUNNY LITTLE CLOWN. The album is called MORE THEMES FOR YOUNG LOVERS, by Percy Faith. Ring a bell?
JOHNNY THYME: I guess you're really not so old after all, Dad.
EPILOGUE: Bringing the musical generations together, and for the entertainment of all, Percy Faith returns to the scene of his recent hit album, and offers you this bouquet of late-blooming hits. Have a ball! Have some MORE THEMES FOR YOUNG LOVERS!
