Whether you're hoping the Browns can earn a playoff spot worthy of their regular season record or still gloating over the New York Giants' Super Bowl upset of the New England Patriots, you're going to like this album. From 1960, the National Football League Marching Band plays the fight songs of the 13 teams that made up the league before the merger.
Television conductor and composer Bernie Green handled the conducting chores for this, which was recorded in an impressive two days. But music isn't the only treat here. Each fight song is introduced by a player for the team, so you'll hear "Dandy" Don Meredith for the Cowboys, Johnny Unitas for the Baltimore Colts, and Bart Starr for the Green Bay Packers. As a bonus, I've included enlargements of the team logos as artwork for the separate tracks.
This is a monaural album that I've duped into left and right channels. For a $1 thrift store find, this one is remarkably clean, with only a couple of pops. In an attempt to recreate the stadium atmosphere, there's crowd noise between all of the tracks. I've put a one-second fade at the start and end of each track so you won't have to hear songs from teams you root against, though you really want to give the whole thing a listen.
