    Does anyone know what the first ever recording of a brass band was, and when it was released? I'm finding conflicting answers on the internet!

    I have recordings of Arthur Pryor from 1901.

    Anyone got an earlier date? HB

    I seem to remember Roy newsome saying something about a very early dyke recording on a triple cd Jewels in the Crown?

    I came across this reference from Norman Field which seems to refer to 1903 as the start date for UK brass band recordings:

    The earliest Dyke recording on "Jewels in the Crown" is 1905.

    Brindley Boon refers to a cylinder recording being made in 1896 by the Trade Headquarters Band, but says the first official SA band recording issued was in 1902 when Regent Hall recorded a number of hymn tunes, including "Onward Christian Soldiers".

    Dyke were recording CD's in 1905? Wow, they were ahead of their time!

    Except that the Arthur Pryor band would not really qualify as a brass band, as it included woodwind instruments ;)
