About the album

Original cover

America has been called the great melting pot. She is also a melting pot of many moods--noble and determined as the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," pensive and nostalgic as "Tenting Tonight," "Red River Valley," or "Home on the Range," spritely as "Dixie" or a Stephen Foster jig. She is light hearted as a "Yankee Doodle" or the "Buffalo Gals," lusty as a mule skinner on the "Erie Canal" and as beautiful and soft as "Aura Lee" and the Valley of the Shenandoah. The moods of America and the songs which interpret them are part of our heritage. Following are comments and background on the selections included in this album.

Special note

The American Heritage is a shared but very individual commodity. To the 3Ds it is, among other things, playing one-night stands at colleges throughout the country, entertaining American servicemen throughout the world, rolling up miles by the hundreds of thousands, flying over Kansas cornfields, driving a twisting Idaho mountain road, watching the bay glitter under San Francisco, catching the view and catching your breath when the New England hillside explodes into color in the fall. It is shaking hands with others who believe in America.

It means a warm fire, a wife and kids to come home to after a tough tour. It means deep roots in the high mountain valleys of Utah where they come from and where love of America is basic to their religion and culture.

We think you will enjoy the 3Ds' musical comment on the American Heritage.

Before turning professional, the 3Ds, Dick Davis, Denis Sorenson, and Duane Hiatt were graduated from Brigham Young University. They spent two years as missionaries for their church and as unofficial ambassadors of good will for America. Denis was in Brazil, Dick in Alaska and the Northwest, and Duane in the Tonga Islands of the South Pacific.

The 3Ds appear here through the courtesy of Capitol Records. Denis is high tenor and string bass man. Duane, the lead tenor plays guitar, and Dick, the group's baritone and musical arranger plays guitar, trumpet, banjo, and whatever else is needed.
