Stars and Stripes For-th of July

Here's a little Americana for your Independence Day celebration, in case you want to stage a neighborhood parade but don't have a marching band readily available - John Philips Sousa marches.

Sorry, the last track has a skip that even the most extreme measures (I'm talking razor blade, here) couldn't remove. The rest of it was pretty beat up, as well, but after several hours of auto and manual de-clicking, it's at least listenable.

That cover - I have to think that was a little risque for its time.
