Freedom: Songs from the Heart of America - Various (2002)

The 67-song boxed set includes songs written over the course of the last two-and-a-half centuries, and recordings dating back to the early 1900s. Included are songs covering virtually every important historical event in our country's history from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War, and from the Industrial Revolution to Prohibition.

Freedom: Songs From The Heart of America is produced by Grammy-winning producers Michael Brooks and Steve Berkowitz, along with Grammy-nominated producers Al Quaglieri and Nedra Olds-Neal. The team worked closely with Kunhardt Productions, producers of the PBS series, in finding music that fit the themes of the television series, and, just as important, could stand alone as a collectible bosxed set of recordings celebrating freedom in America.
