Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Here are 16 over-the-top tracks, featuring replica drums from the Colonial and Civil War eras, all toasting America. The drums were custom-made in Vermont, and you hear them to best advantage in 'Drums of Liberty,' a salute to the drummers on the battlefield over the centuries.... The themes all get impressive, imaginative treatment with their dashing fanfares and imaginative touches. The flat-footed 'My Country, ’Tis of Thee' gets a burst of panache from a few bars of Aaron Copland’s 'Fanfare for the Common Man.' 3½ out of 4" -- The Buffalo News "Here are 16 over-the-top tracks, featuring replica drums from the Colonial and Civil War eras, all toasting America.
