Notes & Reviews:

Always Ready is the English translation of Semper Paratus, the U.S. Coast Guard motto. On this album, The U.S. Coast Guard Band performs a wide variety of patriotic classics, some unique to their specific military branch. This disc also provides timeless patriotic songs like America the Beautiful, marches like The Thunderer and concert works like Charles Ives' iconic Variations on "America." Each of the nineteen tracks offers something different, while still maintaining the band's core sound.
