4.0 out of 5 stars Stirs the blood...
You don't have to be a Northener by birth and a Yorkshireman by heritage to enjoy this collection of brass band music, there's something for everyone - well, almost everyone - ranging from music for reflection or devotional purposes, through the classics and works written especially for brass bands to arrangements of jazz and popular music (none of the more modern pieces...

This was exactly what I wanted. A great variety of well-known tunes beautifully played and suitable for invoking a special atmosphere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stirs the blood..., 31 Mar 2006
This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
You don't have to be a Northener by birth and a Yorkshireman by heritage to enjoy this collection of brass band music, there's something for everyone - well, almost everyone - ranging from music for reflection or devotional purposes, through the classics and works written especially for brass bands to arrangements of jazz and popular music (none of the more modern pieces though) as well as some stirring marches.
For the purist perhaps the differing standards of the twenty two bands featured (some alas no longer with us) may be irksome but I know of nothing else which captures the spirit and range of 'banding' so well.
A unique collection and one which gives a great feel for a part of our English heritage which has been increasingly been taken up across Europe and in North America in recent years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surely a "must have" collection, 18 April 2002
This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
I have only recently started buying Brass CDs and this collection has been a fantastic "Kick Start". There are loads of tunes that I had hoped were on it but didnt know the name of, if you get my drift. Sure , because some of the recordings are low rent there is the occasional "oops" moment with volume levels but I would say the quality is going to be acceptable to all but Audiophiles. Some great individual performances on each of the 4 CDs. If you are reading this because youve just bought Brassed Off and have clicked a link, buy this , you'll love it, and its cheap !

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting compilation of light 'brass band classics', 11 Jan 2002
By 
brucejones@callnetuk.com (West Yorkshire, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
This CD is quite hard to assess. Some would say it comprises some of the 'cheesiest' brass band numbers, whilst otheres would say its a great compilation of recordings from the hey day of old fashioned brass banding. Many of the bands no longer have the same names as they play under on the CD and many of the recordings leave a lot to be desired compared to the standard of brass bands nowadays and the modern recordings they do. Despite this the CD is a great trip down memory lane and makes for some nostalgic listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive cd of brass band music, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
100 Brass Band Classics contained much of the great brass band music from the 20th century. The bands were of a high standard and the recording was also of good quality. The cd is one of the most comprehensive collections that I have listened to.

5.0 out of 5 stars good march and hymn tune records., 15 Nov 2013

This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
I like martial and hymn tunes. There are good tunes on the discs and the music brings out great solo musicians and, you can tell the timing of each piece of music is spot on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of stuff for your money, 16 Oct 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: 100 Brass Band Classics (Audio CD)
Can't give it the fifth star because with so very many tracks there are bound to be duplicates of what one already possesses. Perhaps not quite fair of me but there you have it.
In terms of how much brass you get for your brass --- that's a pun? --- then this comes up trumps [or is it flugel horns?]
Glad I bought it. And the recording quality can't be faulted. Bruce M-S +++

Very good recording with lots of different brass bands playing. I was pleasantly surprised to find a track recorded by the colliery band from the village I grew up!
