CD Reviews

ATTENTION Military Brats
Fred O'Kelley | San Antonio, TX USA | 04/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you've ever been proud of, or miss, being a Military Brat, this is a collection you don't want to pass up. As a "lifer" Military Brat and a Vietnam-era soldier, many of the songs and bugle calls on this recording were a part of the daily background, but two additional songs ("We are All a Family" and "Trinkets and Beads") really sum up a unique lifestyle; every Military Family should hear them - as either a reminder or a prophesy.If you're just looking for patriotic music or select bugle calls (as I was), this is a great collection; if the military is (or was) a significant part of your daily life, it becomes far more. Thanks, NMFA, for a great production."
Great Collection of US Srvice Bands
Roger Kennedy | 01/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the real stuff here. Patriotic music played by the premier bands of the US Armed Forces. This is not a random collection of bands just playing patriotic numbers. These are the real thing, played in superlative fashion, and recorded in top notch manner. There is something for everyone here. Great Sousa marches, patriotic pieces, vocal selections, and army bugle calls. Check out the Altissimo! catalog for additional recordings by these great bands."
You have already paid for your copy of this music - Don't bu

"All American taxpayers have alredy paid for a copy of the recordings on this disc. Indeed, the recordings on this disc (as well as all Altissimo military recordigs that I am aware of) are public domain and are available directly from the Army Band at Fort Meyer, VA. There is absolutely nothing wrong with what Altissimo does here. Nevertheless, as Altissimo knows, the military must provide interested members of the public with free copies of these same military recordings - albeit, perhaps, in a different order and with different cover art. Indeed, the law that guarantees all Americans free access to these recordings also allows Altissimo or anyone else, for that matter, to make unlimited copies of these songs - because they cannot be copy protected! So - why wouldn't you call the offices of the Army Band for free copies or check out the Army Band Website?"
