"For the past 50 or so years, Frederick Fennell has probably been the "Best Friend" that collectors of band music in general and marches specifically could ever have imagined! Starting with monaural LP's in the 1950's, such as Marches For Twirling and British Band Classics with the incomparable Eastman Wind Ensemble, which he himself founded, Dr. Fennell has consistently set the standard for march recordings, and has been a tireless champion for wind ensembles as a serious musical medium." - D.E.T.
"If you can ignore the tape hiss these Mercury Living Presence recordings are the finest ever made. Along with the tape hiss, Mercury's engineering captured every nuance of the performances with a clarity and lucidity that few later recordings could match." - AMG.

Stunning sound! You literally have your own Marching Band playing right in your room. If you think the Telarc 'Macho Marches' was good you will be shocked at how much better this Mercury is. A fantastic pressing - don't let this one slip away.
