How to keep the Fourth going on in Golden style @ 5 July 2013 06:04 PM

Once again, Verse Music has released a pristine reissue of classic Golden Records, this time themed to patriotism.

.

Those familiar with Golden Records will recognize the boisterous, robust sound of these selections, almost all produced under the direction of Mitch Miller. You’ll also find two songs by “Miss America” TV pageant, parade and game show icon Bert Parks.

If you have never heard these songs before, they were done in the late 1940’s and throughout the 1950’s so they have that “live TV” sound. And they should, since the Sandpiper singing quartet was also the group who donned Texaco uniforms and presented Milton Berle each week on his legendary variety show.

Here is the track list with the artists:
