The brass band is something of a social phenomenon, a brotherhood, part of the British way of life. Truly amateur bands are not merely haphazard groupings of players who happen to enjoy a "blow". They have a more serious purpose, part of which is to give opportunity for the unfolding of artistic skill and experience in those whose daily tasks are all too often monotonous and unsatisfying, although necessary. T he brass band movement of the British Isles is a musical and cultural phenomenon somewhat unique in the history of bands. From its formative years in the early 19th century through its continual evolution, it remains an active entity today. The movement began as an effort to provide the working class, primarily in the northern industrial provinces of England, a social and cultural outlet. From humble beginnings today's ensembles boast highly skilled musicians of professional caliber.
This is the only place where you'll find a legal recording of all four original members of U. The best thing about it is being able to hear three songs with slightly different arrangements from the yet-to-be-recorded "Danger Money" album being performed live with Bruford's drumming, and Holdsworth's guitar touches - neither performer was still with the band when that studio album was recorded, so this is special stuff. You know how a lot of prog acts tend to sound derivative of other prog acts? Well, U. A true supergoup from the 70's that lived up to its expectations, U. So a gem like this is hard to pass up. If you can find it, be sure to snatch it up! Second, people say this isn't as good as the debut, but I beg to differ. With no Holdsworth, the jazzy elements have left the group's texture, however they are left with the virtuosity of Eddie, and his extreme classical training. This has a bit more hard rock, but it's way more classical than the debut, it's has more atmosphere on places like "Rendezvous ", and "Danger Money", more complex songs like "The Only Thing She Needs", and "Carrying No Cross", while "Ceasar's Palace Blues", and "Nothing To Lose" are a mix of both atmosphere, and complex, but it also adds more of a hard rock feel to make the album more enjoyable for a more commercial crowd
