    An album by new-age keyboard wizard Chip Davis (AKA Mannheim Steamroller) featuring contributions from country singer C.W. McCall (of "Convoy" fame)? You might think your eyes (and ears) were decieving you if you didn't know that McCall and Davis were both working for the same ad agency decades earlier when they collaborated to get McCall's career off the ground via a commercial that parlayed into a string of country albums. McCall returns the favor on this patriotically themed collection which features such flag-wavers as "Fanfare For the Common Man" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic," not to mention--you guessed it--a new version of "Convoy." What could be more patriotric than a truckers' anthem?
