    They are few and far between, I've searched before and found they are all sold out. I have borrowed it and it is a magnificent CD. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    I'd suggest keeping a close watch on ebay, as there have been a few people selling off fairly large collections including a number of SA recordings - and you're safe, 'cos I've already got that one!

    I would imagine this would be a candidate for WoB Tunes in the (near?) future. What say you Carl?

    Now that is a good idea John! Ive been looking to setup an account there but nothing interested me yet (Or I already have it!)

    Couldnt put on "Marching into the Milennium" by Wingates while yer at it! :p

    I like bread and butter brass music as you may tell, Hymns and Marches heh

    Rob, there is a very good tape of London Citadel Band playing "Sword and Shield" on Side B of Old Timers II, available on their website.:)

    It's on the 'to-do' list, John.

    We are now able to offer differential pricing on WoB Tunes so that we will be able to price tracks individually meaning that the longer tracks become available in their own right rather than as part of the whole recording 'bundle'.

    We are expecting to have Blazon available from World of Brass Tunes by this weekend.
    Once it is available, I will post a link, unless someone beats me to it!

    I was listening to this CD today and noticed a minor error on the sleeve and notes. Track 6 on CD2 - I Know A Fount - is attributed to Herbert Rive but it's an extract from A Pilgrim Song by Thomas Rive. This extract stands on its own so well and could quite easily have been written this way; beautifully scored and very well played too.

    The CD is a terrific blend of newer and older music and it's hard to believe that it's already 17 years old.

    John, on my CD, track 6 (of Disc 2) is definitely the theme and conclusion from Thomas Rive's Symphonic Variations "I know a Fount", not an extract from "A Pilgrim Song" as you say. But you're right about the wrong composer being credited -- that's a serious error.

    I have a high regard and affection for the complete variations and consider it another injustice that Robert Redhead (the conductor) chose to record a bowdlerized version.

    Hi Brian,

    Of course you're right and I can't believe I made that mistake. The only excuse I can come up with is they are two quality pieces of music from a superb musician.

    Apologies that we're a week late with this but Blazon is now available from World of Brass Tunes.
