Contents of this album:

PATRIOTIC (ca. 1776) – [1] 3:42 [2] :60 [3] :30 [4] :08 – Up-Tempo: This colorful orchestral march campaigns for pride and freedom with a panoply of martial panache.
NOSTALGIC (ca. 1820) – [5] 3:00 [6] :60 [7] :30 [8] :11 – Slow: A sentimental reverie for violin and guitars. Reminiscent of small towns, by-gone days and fond memories.
DEEP SOUTH (ca. 1850) – [9] 3:21 [10] :60 [11] :30 [12] :15 – Up-Tempo: Plantation blues of the “Old South” featuring authentic dusty dobro, rural slide guitar, and humble harmonica.
CARE-FREE DAYS (ca. 1870) – [13] 4:15 [14] :60 [15] :30 [16] :08 – Moderate: Time out for leisure and travel, or just a backyard barbecue with plenty of sunshine and iced tea. This versatile southern blues tune sports just a hint of Dixie, plantation life and the Mississippi.
COTTON PICKIN’ (ca. 1890) – [17] 2:54 [18] :60 [19] :30 [20] :10 – Fast: Featuring mandolin.
RAGTIME (ca. 1910) – [21] 3:56 [22] :59 [23] :30 [24] :07 – Moderate: A quaint, turn-of-the-century piano rag, reminiscent of the authentic style heard in old-time salons and parlors.
DIXIELAND (the 1920s) – [25] 3:27 [26] :58 [27] :30 [28] :09 – Up-Tempo: The good-time, roaring 20’s legacy of New Orleans, complete with campy cowbell, slide trombone and Satchmo’s trumpet.
MELANCHOLY JAZZ (the 1930s) – [29] 4:26 [30] :60 [31] :30 [32] :09 – Slow: Right out of the 1930s and 40s, this deeply pensive and moody number conjures up a dimly-lit lounge, a quiet corner table, and smoky candlelight. The smooth guitar improvisations are masterfully executed on an authentic Gibson L5.
BIG BAND (the 1940s) – [33] 4:09 [34] :60 [35] :30 [36] :09 – Fast: Unmistakably swing, from the days of live radio and the jitterbug, it’s the inimitable sound of the war years.
BALLAD (the 1950s) – [37] 3:41 [38] :60 [39] :29 [40] :15 – Moderate: Sounds like a 50’s rock ‘n roll classic. Features a crooning sax with a swooning guitar solo.
BIKINI BEACH (the 1960s) – [41] 3:26 [42] :60a [43] :60b [44] :30 [45] :15 – Fast: Sun-bleached blondes and surfin’ safaris of the early 60s, complete with background doo-wop vocals.
DISCO (the 1970s) – [46] 3:56 [47] :59 [48] :29 [49] :14 – Up-Tempo: With plenty of dance floor hustle, sleek background vocals and all the classic disco cliches, this cut is ideal for retro products, flashbacks and boomer college reunions.
