  • December 10, 2004 I Agree!

    Brilliant piece, not so keen on the James Brown version though. I play it with CYJO, with Adam Earle, and it has to be one of the bands favourite pieces.

  • November 30, 2004 Great Piece

    This is a great piece of music, my band played it at the Chepstow national finals and got a gold award, it is a great mix and if you have a good band of musicians then your audiences will love this. Make sure that the band works hard at it...

    and you'll probably be one of the best bands in the country
