I'm curious to see how other people choose band cds... I listen to quite a bit of band music as I travel around, and every so often I get bored with my cds and buy some more. But it's not like buying other genres, as unless you're at a contest with trade stands, there's not very much opportunity for the serendipity of browsing - you have to try and decide from a catalogue or the internet. I generally either buy cds with pieces of music on that I've played and want a recording of, or have heard at a concert, which often involves buying things from the back catalogue rather than recent releases. Generally this is quite good as if I choose something for one particular track then I get introduced to loads more stuff. I don't think I've ever bought a cd where I didn't know at least one piece (with the possible exception of the Regionals series...). What do other people do??
