    There's a world whistling champion? Might have to check that out!

    He's been featured in the British Bandsman and even has a solo CD out called Whistling Down the Wind.

    Why all the different labels?

    There's Doyen, SP&S, Sforza and Egon but they all seem to emanate from the same stable.

    SP&S is for Salvation Army groups only.
    Doyen titles are recorded by Doyen Recordings Ltd.
    Egon titles are recorded by B&H Sound Services Ltd.

    We don't issue recordings on a Sforza label.

    After deciding I didn't need another Christmas CD, I read the review on 4barsrest and immediately ordered Simple Gifts. It was miraculously delivered in one week and has hardly left my CD player since. This is a great recording and belongs on your "Must Have" list. Congratulations to YBS and all involved.
