CD Reviews

The BEST Patriotic recording ever - from a Canadian!?
Ralph DeMattia | Fayetteville, Pennsylvania United States | 01/11/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me say right up front - I meant the wording in my title as no disrespect in ANY way to Mr. MacGregor or Canadians, but why has a patiotic GEM like this not come from an American? I can't listen to this album, especially THE AMERICANS, without getting misty-eyed, and my Dad Gave me the LP version when it first came out almost 30 years ago! And it's still by far the BEST and most patiotic recording I have ever heard, and ALL Americans should have a copy."
Proud To Be An American
Marie Jolley | Plano, Texas | 11/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This narrative is the quintessential, definition of America and America's role, globally. My heart swells with pride every time I listen to it. The patriotic background music to the narrative complement one another to create a masterful,patriotic,work which, will serve as a reminder to each of us how fortunate and proud we are to be an American."
