"Gathering Crowds" (aka This Week in Baseball Theme)

Right now I would like you to listen to "Gathering Crowds" - the closing theme from This Week in Baseball.

I downloaded this from a "TV Themes" collection on iTunes a few years ago, and was instantly transported back to my '70s youth. When teams like the Expos (above) not only existed, but were highly respected. Back when I used to watch This Week in Baseball every single week, and looked forward to doing so.

By the way - the equally memorable opening theme can be heard here.

Also, sorry the video for "Gathering Crowds" is so lousy. It appears to have been made by someone with a Dale Murphy fixation. Just minimize your browser, and enjoy the song.
