Are you looking for the 78s themselves or more recent transfers from early recordings?

If you're looking for transfers onto cd there are a number around: SP&S have issued a series of 4 cds featuring early Salvation Army bands, plus a couple of soloists (The Old Wells, Army of the Brave, Where Duty Calls, In the Firing Line). (Contact www.worldofbrass.com for more details)

The Fodens centenary double cd (Centenary Brass, DOYCD100) features old recordings on the first cd.

There was also a recording advertised recently featuring massed bands playing marches, but I don't have the details of that one to hand. There is also a cd featuring Jack MacKintosh, some of which is to various other accompaniments, but which features some with brass band, including duets with Harry Mortimer.
