This is a record released in 1977 and narrarated by Harry Kalas about the history of the Philadelphia Phillies. If you’ve ever listened to Harry Kalas and thought “you know…Harry would sound a lot better speaking over soaring strings or disco music”, this is absolutely a must-have.
On the rear cover:
There is no game like it! It’s so beautifully simple, yet magnificently complex.
To some it’s a sport, to some a religion, to some a ballet, and to some a confrontation.
But, to Philadelphians, Phillies Baseball is the greatest”
- William Y. Giles, Executive Vice President
