    So many to choose from.... but for me it has to be:

    Kings of Europe. YBS

    Still a few to catch up with ... but the best by far ('scuse the pun) is YBS's Music Of The Spheres. They make the works sound easy to play, which is a compliment and a half to David King and his team. Really good production work on the disc as well.

    I nominate Trumpets of the Angels- The Music of Edward Gregson Volume 4.

    Played by Black Dyke, some staggering playing from all concerned and all the guests.
    Gregson surely must be one of the great Brass Band composers especially when it comes to 'breaking from the norm' and incorporating non standard Brass band instruments.

    A truly class cd! :D

    music of the spheres edges it over legend for me, 2 awesome dics. I like trumpets of the angels also.

    I think "Legend" falls outside the period, but maybe Carl could confirm the release date?

    Although I've been impressed with a number of those already nominated, I'd like to broaden the field somewhat, and go for Whitburn's "Reflections of Freedom".

    Having heard it only within the last few days, it has to be 'Music of the Spheres' for me.

    I guess a favourite band cd of all time for many will Dyke's 'Complete Champions' under Peter Parkes. I think that MOTS will become a similar classic. The playing is fantastic as you would expect. Great to hear 'Harrisons Dream' in the studio......that's the highlight of the disc for me. The recording of MOTS itself is great although I prefer the live version. Having been there at the time, the energy and excitement from that first performance was just fantastic and just edges it for me. Their performances of 'Contest Music' and 'Tristan Encounters' will no doubt be looked to for ideas in 10 years when the pieces are used again!

    Hey, I'm gonna take the plunge and nominate a brass ensemble CD (Surely not, Dave?), Jazzi Metal by the RSAMD Brass as I reviewed here

    (No disrespect to the other recordings nominated. I dare say, I may well be casting the only vote this gets! :))

    Whether or not it gets any votes, I can endorse Dave's recommendation of this recording - I managed to pick up a cheap copy (there are some advantages of staying in London, Dave!) and greatly enjoyed it ;)

    Only one............that's a task even the Mission Impossible team would find daunting :)

    For me it's a close choice between Music of the Spheres and The Trumpets of the Angels. Limited to a single choice I vote for MotS.

    If there was a separate solo category it would be Legends.
