"This is almost a comprehensive set of music that includes horns. However, there are a few small problems. Chicago, perhaps the greatest band to ever use a horn section is missing. Secondly, Spiral Starecase (More Today Than Yesterday) is another short lived one hit wonder who used brass in all of their songs...not to mention the neglected Buckinghams. Besides these few oversites, the CD is worth the investment."
This is a fantastic collection of horn rock bands of the 70s

"I've looked for years for a collection of the many horn rock bands of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. This is it! I've enjoyed Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears over the years, but there have been so many others that were "here and gone" but were well worth the listening. The genre of rock music has gone through many changes since Elvis and Chuck Berry made their impression. The period where bands included brass and saxaphones was often a brilliant addition to the grinding guitars and pounding drums. Bands like Lighthouse and Chase that had very distictive styles provided the music lover a variation on the four piece rock combo. Their intrumental variations made them always interesting. Chase with 4 trumpets. Lighthouse with an extended brass section of trumpets and trombones and others made this portion of album rock always entertaining. Each also seemed to have a particularly powerful vocalist to add to the blend of rock rhythm and wind section. For anyone looking for a solid collection of great rock bands including horns, this is the collection for you!!! Slap this one in the cd player, Crank it UP and let the BRASS BLOW YOU AWAY!!!! I hope that this is one of many to come."

"An absolute MUST for a quick "synopsis" of most important Horn
section Bands in USA.It is ironic that the man who influnced most of these guys Mr Maynard Ferguson is not included in this compilation.Therefore I dedicate this cd title to his latest (M.Ferguson) CD
new release as a main title for this article.
