AllMusic Review by

The easy listening sounds of Canadian composer and arranger Percy Faith's smooth string and vocal orchestra provided a swank soundtrack for millions of radio listeners worldwide during the 1950s and '60s. This mid-'50s collection of rousing football anthems finds the urbane musician in an uncharacteristically rambunctious mood on tunes like "Ramblin' Wreck From Georgia Tech" and "On, Brave Old Army Team," as well as the instantly recognizable "When the Saints Go Marching In."
