My first album share this season is the wonderful "Seasons Greetings" by the United States Army Band. The album features several different combinations of musicians from the US Army Band, including the US Army Chorus, the Chamber Orchestra, and the Brass and Woodwind Ensembles, all under the direction of Leader and Commander Colonel Eugene W. Allen. There are fifteen tracks on the album, including a leading track "A Christmas Medley" consisting of four well known carols.
There is an interesting note on the back cover "Not For Sale/Public Service". So perhaps the album was distributed only to members of our armed forces? If a reader has some insight, please comment and share.
So, without further ado and with respect for all of our servicepersons past and present, please enjoy this fine album, "Seasons Greetings" from the United States Army Band.
Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement!ReplyDelete
Good one! I've got this one in my queue as well to try and get out this year. There were lots of similar records over the years, they were used as promotional pieces, given away at concerts or what not to people who asked and sent to radio stations to play during public service programs. I saw the Airmen of Note last year in DC and they had a few CDs they were giving away. No Christmas ones since it was in June though.ReplyDelete
