Probably not the best title for this thread, but here goes: Reading the latest edition of "Brass Herald", Peter Parkes writes of his most recent spell with Faireys. Amongst other things, he refers to recordings that they had made, but which never saw the light of day. This made me think that there must be other situations where either the opportunity for a recording was missed, or else the recording took place, but was not proceeded with for some reason or other. My personal experience of this was when I was playing horn with the South London Divisional Youth Band, under Maurice Cooper. We spent some time preparing for a recording, the sessions taking place in the old Salvation Army hall at Camberwell, then being used for the Training College's weekly Holiness Meetings. The band was on top form, playing such pieces as "Lord of the Sea" and "Symphony of Thanksgiving". Unfortunately the recordings were never released, I believe due the reluctance to fork out for the initial cost, even though we had firm orders that would have more than covered that outlay. Anyone else like to share any similar experiences?
