Good Album Spoilt by Recording Company
on 31 March 2015
Not really into The Bands of the Guards Division, more a Royal Marines and German Military Bands enthusiast. Having read other reviews of this Album, I HAVE CHANGED my opinion of the Album(Was 5Stars). The content is good, but there is something not quite right in this Album. I think that Decca have spoilt it by going for loud sound, rather than quality sound, the loud passages are too loud, and this has created a resonance in some of the tracks especially "Where Eagles Dare". It is a shame Decca did not support a Forces Charity with some of the profits, like the Band did, however I thought the review was suppposed to be in regard to the quality of the music not the politics of the recording company. If the sound quality does not bother you, at the price this Album can now be bought at, it is worth buying. (Review updated 29/06/15).
