    While out and about in hebden Bridge yesterday, The chairman of the band was given a rare copy of the hebden bridge band playing les preludes on side 1, and the skelmersdale band on side 2 playing lorenzo, its on the, MIDLAND SOUND RECORDINGDS Lable, 40 Bishop street coventry,recording date 1966, It now has pride of place in my vast colection of brass/military recordings,
    does any body out there know anything about these or did you play on them, or even know who was the conductor on them, thay are both live recordings, and I think they are from contest with the claping at the end. it would be nice to know at what contest. Ive been in the band for 34 years and never ever herd of talk of this recording, what a great find, many thanks to the gentleman who gave us LP, yet another link to banding in the 60,s:biggrin:
