The Berwick Tattoo

(5 out of 5 stars)
"The Berwick Tattoo occurs every two years at the barracks of the King's Own Scottish Borderers at Berwick on Tweed. This is a relatively new Tattoo, and an example of some of the newer shows coming up to replace some of the older fair which has passed away in the UK. The recordings quality for a live performance is excellent. Highlights include the massed pipes and drums display, and then individual displays by the various military bands present. The display by the newly formed Highland Band is of particular interest, the band having been recently formed from the remnants of the Scottish Division bands. The finale includes all the standard fair for these kinds of shows. The listener should find the music enjoyable, as well as entertaining. Many good marches are played throughout. This is not CD with a lot of non-military fare in it, which should make it of particular interest. Recommended for those who like Tattoos and live music performances."
