Gary McFarland: America The Beautiful

This forty year-old, six-movement "concept album" is making my 2010 favs list. I wasn't  aware of the album's existence until this year.  In 1969, McFarland had no audience for it. & the "environmental" theme was fairly new.  The album is brilliant, not perfect, I'll be writing more about it. "Suburbia" is the third movement, the band  first rate, the arrangements unusual.
