Stars and Stripes

From one of the best piccolo solos.....

John Philips Sousa - The Stars and Stripes Forever.mp3
Buy: Sousa's Greatest Hits (1999) one of the best guitar solos....

Jimi Hendrix - The Star Spangled Banner.mp3
Buy: Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix (1998) a brilliant song that doesn't really have anything to do with Independence Day.

Dave Alvin - 4th of July.mp3
From: King of California (1994, out of print, according to Amazon)
This album is brilliant! How the hell can it be out of print!

You should post Stars and Stripes of Corruption by the Dead Kennedys

4th of July is a great track but I always preferred the version (slowed down acoustic) that was done on one of his albums which I had many years ago on pre-recorded cassette - but I remember it had a different title in the UK from the album that was released in the USA. Still a great song and Dave Alvin is a massively underrated singer/songwriter.
