 Solid Gold Brass! August 23, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "If there's anyone who loves music but lacks a fine brass recording, this is your lucky find! I already owned the all Sousa recording by The Wallace Collection, so was curious about other offerings. The variety here is satisfying, 73+ minutes of solid bliss." Report Abuse
