There are two annual July 4th traditions that I thoroughly enjoy year after year. They are 1.) a viewing of the film version of "1776" and 2.) listening to Stan Freberg's "The United States of America" on CD (which contains a few scenes cut from the original vinyl). An in-studio concept album spotlighting some of the best voice actors in the business, and some are still with us today. If you don't know their names you'll surely remember their voices.
Here's a small snippet from the album which is full of puns, gags, and over the top comparisons. This one covers the sale of Manhattan Island and the Boston Tea Party. Enjoy. And please, no throwing of tomatoes.
More can be found at YouTube, if you're interested.
I'll have more on this holiday tomorrow, but for now, just laugh and enjoy your your evening.
And so it goes.
