    I have two recordings of 'A Moorside Suite' one by Black Dyke (JAMES WATSON) and the other by GRIMETHORPE(GARY CUTT).
    They are both fine recordings,i just about give it to BLACK DYKE.
    But who do you think is the best one?

    Not the Black Dyke one. I can't forgive the engineering blip that sees the first movement repeated section included three times! Grimethorpe under Howarth still gets my vote.

    There's a third one available, also from Grimethorpe on The History of Brass Band Music, Volume 1.

    I have the Grimey one under Howarth and it is very good. The cornet solos (Player by my conductor) are beautiful. Great band sound.
