Overview

American Spirit

Offering a collection of classic patriotic tunes and new music inspired by America, Mannheim Steamroller's American Spirit is a stirring musical tribute to the USA. Backed by members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Chip Davis -- the talent behind the Steamroller -- performs updated versions of such standards as "America the Beautiful," "Home on the Range," and more, while narrator Bill Fries lends his voice to three tracks. Inspired by popular demand, the album tips its hat to fans while paying homage to a nation.

This CD is so unusual for Mannheim Steamroller that you can't help but like it. You are able to tap your toes to more than one number or "sing along" It's Great!!

Wow! I was really looking forward to this album. With a few exceptions the music was lack-luster. And, there was way too much talking (narrative?). Mannheim Steamroller let me down on this one.

I was very impressed with this CD. Top notch! Maybe they'll come out with a second edition that has more well known music.
