Compiled by M Moritz

Probably one of the most controversial packs RDUK ever produced. A uniquely British collection that was very popular due to the ardent fans of Brass Band music that exists in this country. The main contention of the pack was the division between 'Militairy Bands' and the other type of Brass Bands. It was sacriledge to many that these musical 'genres' should be mixed. Not to mention the positioning of how the model was holding the instrument on the front cover!
