    Does anyone know the exact title/ record label/ reference number of a CD that Sellers did about 15+ years ago (they may still have been the Huddersfield Tecol band (?) then) that was sold by Boots ('Classic Brass Band Collection'?). Was a favourite of mine and had some really good arrangements on it ('Mack & Mabel', 'Toccata', 'Cortege' etc etc) and I lent it to someone ages and it never came back (it was so long ago, I can't remember who I lent it to!).

    I'm pretty sure I had this on cassette too, but I'm blowed if I can find it. I'll keep looking out for it though. I'm pretty sure it was Sellers conducted by Philip McCann, if I'm thinking of the same cassette..

    Didn't Eric Morecambe crack a gag about Des O'Connor's records being available on prescription at Boots? I'm sure Seller's weren't in that league.

    Thanks Debra! Now all I need to do is find a copy! Can anyone recommend a second hand CD shop who do brass band CDs......?
