Notes & Reviews:

"A good deal of what makes the band so strong is the measure of its star soloists; the solo set pieces for euphonium, cornet, tenor horn, and flugelhorn all stand out here. The program is decidedly on the light side, and Grimethorpe is not afraid to employ a pop backbeat here and there -- this is a band for the people, not a military unit or a symphonic band attached to a university... overall Chandos' Grimethorpe should prove highly satisfactory to both band fanciers and even to tastes that are more general -- the Grimethorpe Colliery Band is so proficient it can even make Riverdance sound good." -All Music
