The Best of ‘79
Concert Band
(1978)
SONY DSC
Not sure where I got this album. Not sure why I have this album.
As I sit and listen to this album I am questioning why I’m listening to it.
But it is in my collection so I must…
This is a two album collection of sappy orchestral show tunes. It all sounds like a bunch of musical overtures stuck together. They are mostly medleys stuck together so you are never too clear on what you are hearing. Especially since they all sound eerily similar.
This album drips of 1970s maudlin orchestration. This is Muzak in spades – somewhat familiar but ultimately forgettable.
I’m sure there are people who would love this album and really enjoy this music.
I’m not one of them.

As a after note – the album is titled “Best of ‘79” yet was produced and published in 1978.
