One of the Best Sousa Albums Ever
Ronald Carson | USA | 07/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you like Sousa marches, this would should not be missed. I was introduced to Sousa in 1975 when I purchased this record. From that day foward, collecting a recording of every Sousa march became my goal. Before I lost my entire collection in fire (July 2000), I had over 20 different bands playing Sousa. This was my favorite album because of the good use of dynamics and because it brought accompaniment parts that usually can not be heard when other bands play the same march. Compare what this band does with the first strain of Stars and Stripes compared to any other band. There are bands with better technical expertise, but this one seems to bring a fresh approach. Sadly, there are many albums I will not be able to replace, but I did meet my goal and I'm going for it again, starting with this album."
A great Sousa, a great price

"There are a lot of Sousa albums offered on Amazon and I looked throught them all. This album has most of the Sousa chestnuts and that was what I was looking for. I only wanted a CD to listen to while I was on the treadmill. And the price was very right. What I wasn't expecting was a really terrific CD. I can't say that its full of amazing musical artistry as there are some obvious wrong notes in the wrong places. But on the other hand the recording is very clear without a lot of recording tricks, its full of enthusiasm and captures the march spirit perfectly. It's like the country's best town brass band, and the amazing thing is the country is Checkoslovakia. (Or what was Checkoslovakia.) Its a great album."
