Sousa's Greatest Hits
Sousa's Greatest Hits & Some that Should Have Been is a historic compilation of John Philip Sousa's most beloved marches. Performed by The United States Marine Band under the direction of Colonel Albert Schoepper, conductor from 1959 to 1972, this collection represents the very best in the march genre. Sousa conveyed the energy of an emerging America into his music. Premiers of classics like The Washington Post, Semper Fidelis, and The Stars and Stripes Forever thrilled audiences of his day, and continue to resonate with the American spirit in us all. This collection is dedicated to the memory of John Philip Sousa and to the superb musicians of the United States Marine Band who continue to celebrate his tradition.
