Format: Audio CD
Knowing very little about classical music, I bought several march compilations a few years back, in hopes that I could develop at least a fanboy level of appreciation. Of the compilations I picked up, this is the one that showed me the most diverse sampling of marches. If you want to become familiar with the march genre, this collection runs away with the blue ribbon, with no contendors close behind. The other compilations I came across focused strictly on the American military marches; they were all very good, but this compilation dishes up a diverse menu, from Ludwig Von Beethoven to John Williams.
This CD has a special place in my collection since it turned me on to John Philip Sousa, who has become one of my favorite composers ever. The Sousa selections on this CD are performed by The Incredible Columbia All-Star Band. I enjoyed these tunes immensely enough to buy some Sousa compilations, and found that while the All-Star Band's take on Sousa tunes is very good, I greatly prefer the releases by The United States Marine Band. The Sousa tunes on this CD are a bit rushed for my taste, while The United States Marine Band's delivery seems more pronounced and evenly paced.
My personal favorite track is Kenneth Alford's "Colonel Bogey" performed by John Williams and The Boston Pops Orchestra. They take Alford's memorable placid march, and shape it into a powerful storm-of-an-orchestral march. Absent are the keyboards prevalent in many renditions of Colonel Bogey, but beautifully replaced with a dynamic orchestra.
It's the variety of marches, however, that steal the show, especially if you are a novice like I am, and want to find out which era of marches is your cup of tea.

This CD is a great CD. It includes some the worlds most famous marches with a great recording. I grew up in marching bands in East Texas and loved marches, and this CD gets my blood pumping and takes me back to the old days. If you love great music and marches, this is a sure buy!!!!

I provide music for water aerobics classes. The class members are typically retirees, and like Classical music, yet until this CD the only Classical music with a beat distinctive and steady enough for water aerobics that I'd found was on the "Hooked on Classics" series. Thus, for water aerobics, this is a find.

Also contributing to this CD's popularity for water aerobics are that: (1) many of the songs are upbeat, and (2) "new stereo" recordings (in contrast to my recordings of Sousa marches that were played by Sousa himself; he died in the 1930s.)

In Summary, were you to buy just ten CDs for water aerobics classes, this would be one of them.

I like marches and military bands and marching bands and parade bands, so I figured that I might enjoy this "Marches: Greatest Hits" album. But what I especially enjoyed about this album was its diversity of musical styles, all technically marches but certainly written with different purposes in mind. As much as I like Sousa, I was surprised and pleased that fewer than 10 out of 25 tracks were written by Sousa. And though there were certainly others written in the Sousa style, I was thrilled to hear the march from Holst's "First Suite," Rimsky-Korsakov's "Procession of the Nobles," Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary," and other comparably fabulous classical music pieces. There were even a handful of marches from film scores thrown in for good measure.

The musicianship of each of the bands is fabulous, and the entire collection is really a treat. The juxtaposition of one style to another is a bit jarring at times (it's a difficult transition for me from John Williams' theme music from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" directly to Sousa's iconic "The Stars and Stripes Forever"), but this album lives up to its title as a collection of greatest hits from the history of marches. I thoroughly enjoy it and recommend it to anyone interested in enjoying 25 wonderful tracks of some of the greatest marches ever written.

I don't have a trained ear for classical music, but I do enjoy listening to the "greatest hits", and this compilation of marches is pretty solid. I thought it would be more diverse than the Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops CD:Stars And Stripes Forever & The Greatest Marches. I actually plan on getting both CDs to complement one another, as they feature different selections of tunes (with some overlap) and are both reasonably priced (hovering in the eight-dollar range).

The selections on this CD speak for themselves. Many pieces are familiar from TV commercials, movies, etc., even if the names don't jump out at the casual listener. Just listen through the MP3 samples. The CD brings together classical marches from Old Europe, mixes in a healthy dose of late 19th-century John Philip Sousa, and even adds some 20th-century film score music (John Williams's compositions for "1941" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). The composers represented include big names like Beethoven, Bach, Sousa, Verdi, and Holst. The music is lively and will have you bouncing in your chair.

What I did not realize when purchasing this CD was that it was a CD-R, burn-on-demand disc. I had added it to my Wish List a long time ago, when it was still, I assume, a 1994 Sony Classical release. Now it seems the only available physical version is the CD-R. The tell-tale difference is that the original cover art features a blue border, which is the bland aesthetic theme for the whole packaging.

I purchased the physical CD, rather than the MP3 album, because I thought the booklet might offer some insight or at least a reliable listing of the composers and performing orchestras.
