    No doubt Carl will soon be posting an announcement on this latest CD release from Grimethorpe but I was wondering if anyone had any comments about the content. Past releases have generated some interesting discussion on tMP relative to the music. Some I've heard before (eg: Labour & Love; BB & CF) but others are new to me (eg: Yorkshire Waltzes; Quadrilles). Does anyone have any comment re The Early Years?

    I was hoping to pick a copy up when I was over at SP&S last week, but they didn't have them in stock. I shall definitely post once I've got one, as I've followed with interest the discussions around the instrumentation and repertoire. I do know that Iwan Fox said to me several weeks ago that he'd been listening to a test pressing and had been impressed by it.

    Any more information on this CD? Are Grimey going to use period instruments?

    We definately used a G trombone on every track.Small bore tenors were used for some.
    On Yorkshire Waltzes you'll find ophecleide and early cornets although I can't remember exactly how many early cornets were used.
    Hope that helps.

    Unfortunately Peter, we're still waiting for the stock to arrive.
    We had to put the CD onto the website as we were committed to advertising it in the Easter issue of British Bandsman.
    We're taking orders for the CD now, but will not charge cards until the stock arrives and is about to be sent out.

    Here's the link anyway;

    The first two releases in the series The Golden Era and The Salvation Army Connection are still available individually or at the special price of £19.95 if purchased TOGETHER.
