O say, have you heard?

Very cool collection! It's amazing to see how the national anthem developed, and what a rich history it has had. Listening to these tracks, I discovered how the tune was used for many different types of songs, some very different from "The Star-Spangled Banner" as we know it today--drinking songs, celebratory songs, rallying songs. There is also a surprise to discover about the way the "Star-Spangled Banner" was originally sung…very cool! I could tell that a lot of care went into making the various versions authentic, and the performers really brought talent and life into the recordings.
