Format: Audio CD
The compositions are definitely good, but like another reviewer said, they're not played with the fire and enthusiasm of the originals. Typically, this means that the orchestral flow is not as "fluid" as the live band -- this composition tends to pronounce every note clearly (very staccato-like). If you're interested in only one fight song (from your alma mater, for example), you're better served to go to that university's website and order their marching band's CD. But, if you want a good overall list of cross-country fight songs, this is pretty good. It includes lyrics with each fight song, but be sure to double-check them with the actual words. A couple (California, and Ohio State) were a bit incorrect.

This CD is the absolute best of all the college fight song CDs. It's digital sound is knockout and the performances, though a bit slower in pace generally than the marching band versions played on the field by most schools, has the large orchestra power you need to crank you up before the big game, or to keep the faith during the off season. The best renditions are the fight songs for USC (the greatest fight song ever written!), OKLAHOMA, TEXAS A&M, and my personal favorite and alma matar, ALABAMA! Roll Tide!

I am an Alabama grad, four years in the Million Dollar Band. While this CD is not of the highest quality sound-fidelity wise, it is good fun. I thought the "Yea, Alabama" was rather stately . . . it is performed at a slower, 6 to 5 rhythm, such as for a parade. The other fight songs are pretty good too. This is not a great musical performance, and the sound sometimes has too much reverb, but it is good fun and well worth the price. By the way, the "Yea, Alabama" on the CD indeed is the correct tune. The sample for "Yea, Alabama" can be heard under the Cal-Berkeley heading -- go figure!

the songs seemed more like parade songs than stadium songs but what a value. Even though this is an instrumental the liner notes list the lyrics for all the songs.

Not each school's marching bands, but very nicely done. Surprised that Eyes of Texas (UT), Tennessee Fight song (or Rocky Top), and Georgia's song not included. Great renditions of USC, UCLA, Ohio St., Tex A&M, and our beloved Penn State. Go Lions! Excellent value.

What makes this collection of college fight songs outstanding is its variety of the more obscure songs, such as those for Oregon, Oregon State, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Washington, Texas A&M. Many of these were available previously only from each college's band's website, and then you sometimes only got a snippet. I would like to know, however, what band it is.

The fight songs are just like what you hear at the stadiums. They jump right in at the chorus. I have another CD which plays a 2:20 minute version of The Victors. You wait a minute and a half before you recognize what is playing. This CD got it right along with all the others. You won't be disappointed.

Whether you are an alumnus searching for your college fight song, or a sound booth technician for your local Pop Warner League, this CD is perfect for all people. I myself am a high school student who is sampling fight songs in hopes of coming up with one with which i can switch some words to create a new school fight song. This has all the favorites, from such sing-a-longs as "Rambling Wreck" and "The Victors" to the classics and standards like "Fight The Team" and "The Notre Dame Victory March." Plain and simple, this CD has the college fight songs to fire up any crowd.
