Notes & Reviews:

Webster's Dictionary defines "Americana" as "things typical of America." The "typical American" optimistic spirit is captured in the sweeping melodies and triumphant sonorities of composer James Beckel's "American Dream." "Typical American" patriotism shines through in American March King, John Philip Sousa's, "Washington Post," one of his most famous marches written in 1889 and became popular as a dance tune and a march both in the United States and Europe. Walter Cronkite guest appears as narrator for "A Lincoln Portrait." Colonel Nikolai Ushapovsky also makes a guest appearance on this album conducting Ives' "Variations on America." Directed by Commander Lewis J. Buckley, the United States Coast Guard Band strives to express its great patriotism on this album, Americana.
