    Our webmaster has jumped the gun somewhat and put the eagerly anticipated solo CD from Peter Roberts in the New Releases section of our website!
    It is supposed to be in the Coming Soon part as it is due for release at the first round of Regionals on 6th March.

    However, you can pre-order it now by clicking on the link below.
    The link will also give you the track listing.

    Bad webmaster. Imagine teasing us all like that. Fifteen lashes for you (with a wet noodle of course) :wink:

    Can anyone recall such interest in a CD before :?:

    Anyone fancy betting against this being the best-selling Brass CD of all time?

    Get your orders in now!This cd is a must.You have to hear it to believe it.
    Peter Roberts always plays to an unbelievable high standard&it's hard to imagine that even he can raise his standard any further,but on this disk that is what you will hear!Over two gruelling weekends Pete was awesome.The look of amazement on everybodys faces after every take said it all.The highlight for me was when we finished "Memory"&I looked down the line at Dean Morley(who was guesting).Both me&Deano looked at each other,mouths wide open,with a look of total amazement.

    Those of us fortunate to be there will,I'm sure,never forget it.

    Is that a new English word? It probably needs a translation, at least for all us ex-pats. :wink:

    Peter played 'On with the Motley' when we hosted YBS in July last year.
    I'd heard about Peter's performances of this over the years but even that didn't prepare me for the experience of hearing it live.
    The intensity and passion he put into the performance was quite incredible.
    Glad to see that he has recorded it for the new CD.

    We've given our webmaster a kicking and he's added 'Available 6th March' to the site now!

    Thank you for all your pre-orders over the weekend.

    Don't sop players know any other solo's?

    It's a good piece, but does everyone have to play it, it's been done to death now, IMHO.

    I think it's the same throughout banding, everybody is playing the same stuff - with all the new music that comes out all the time, can't conductors choose music no-one else is playing. Just my humble opinion.

    Nice one!! :) :)

    Although, ur not allowed to do that, I think it's called bumping or something.

    James in general terms you have a point. But not with Pete's CD. Pete and On with the Motley go together. He gives the definitive performance. They go together like shoes and socks, lemon and meringue etc.etc.

    On Pete's first solo CD, he just has to put it on because people want to hear Pete playing this. He always delivers an emotive performance. Performers become associated with certain pieces and Pete will always be associated with Memory, On with the Motley, Silver Threads etc.

    Long live Pete the legend.
