Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Ken Burns' PBS documentary on our national pasttime is every bit as moving and profound as you'd expect from the man who created The Civil War . This album, the soundtrack to the series, "sports" such classic baseball songs as Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball? , both the old Count Basie version and a new one by Natalie Cole, and Take Me Out to the Ball Game done by Bruce Hornsby and Dr. John, plus songs by Duke Ellington, Les Brown, King Curtis, Blind Willie Johnson...a roster of artists spanning 100 years of baseball!
Hailed as perhaps the greatest filmed document in the history of the sport, Ken Burns's epic series chronicled more than a century's worth of baseball lore. The producers paid nearly as much attention to the audio as the stunning visuals, but this soundtrack is slightly uneven. Baseball errs on the side of good taste a bit too often, what with contributions from Bruce Hornsby, Carly Simon, and Natalie Cole peppered amid classics by the likes of Duke Ellington and Count Basie. The well-chosen historical material--including calls spanning five full decades--should interest die-hard fans, though. --David Sprague
