The Dondero High School A Capella Choir - Fox On The Run/Sunshine Of Your Love
I became fascinated with School Band Music years ago in the 80’s when I picked up a marching band record at a thrift store and heard interpretations of popular songs by kids. Now… there’s a lot of crap to sift through when looking for school band records and most LPs will only have one good song (if that). There are exceptions to that rule, like the Lochiel and South Carvolth (Langley Schools Music Project) records that were found in Canada by Brian Linds and released on CD by Irwin Chusid. The two cuts here from the Dondero kids are fun gems and it’s the first time I’ve heard Sweet’s ‘Fox On The Run’ being covered by a School Band. Cream’s ‘Sunshine’ is a bonus I included for your listening pleasure. These songs are made possible by Suzanne Baumann who found this cassette in a thrift store in 2002 and she writes, "Dondero is located in Royal Oak, Michigan. Their mascot, The Oaks. A Capella is the name of their advanced level chorus, and, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with the style of singing they do!"
