    I'll nominate "Gifted Leadership" the new march CD by the Brass Band of Columbus. Some not so oft heard marches, a fantastic reference book included and some fine playing.

    BAYV Band (Bob Childs)- The Lighter Side Of Elgar Howarth. I just bought this CD today and the band performs brilliantly on concert material first brought on the scene by Grimey in the '70s. If you have to buy something for Xmas, it has to be this album! :cool: :tup

    I was considering nominating this one, but I shall now think of something else ;)

    I'd certainly recommend it, and for me many of the performances even top the Grimethorpe originals. It may have come out a little late in the year to do well in the voting as not many will have heard it, but it would certainly be a great present for someone with an interest in music and a lively sense of fun :)

    If we can nominate our own, the Ipswich & Norwich Co op's "A Suffolk Prelude". It received a good review on 4 bars rest and air time on Radio 2's Listen to the Band recently.

    The Heaton Collection - Vol.4

    A superb conclusion to this series. Dyke are imho awesome and the music is stunning, especially Variations. Then there's Martin Winter; what an amazing player.

    I'd like to nominate "Twenty supreme years", from Eikanger Bjorsvik and Howard Snell. Despite a few reservations I have voiced elsewhere over the unnatural spotlighting of certain sections - the percussion in particular - it nevertheless contains some stunning playing and varied and attractive repertoire.

    Can I nominte Sunburst - The Music of Darrol Barry performed by the Fodens Richardson Band and conducted by Mike Fowles.

    It features three of Darrols Concerti - flugel, baritone and tuba and includes lots of new original works for band.

    Cheers Rach
