4barsrest CD of the Year 2011.
Only For You is the second album of music by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, recorded by Black Dyke Band and directed by Dr Nicholas Childs. It has been three years since the release of the first album of music by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, Walking with Heroes, which has been a stunning success. The album itself has been a best-seller and the music featured has been purchased and played by brass bands all over the world.
The music on this follow-up album includes pieces that concert-goers have already enjoyed in performances given worldwide by Black Dyke Band and pieces that have been written more recently. The music on this album encompasses various styles including concert openers and finales, a traditional brass band march, solos, programmatic music, jazz, pop and rock styles to provide the listener with a wide and varied programme to enjoy.
The idea behind the album title was simple. Paul Lovatt-Cooper has had many requests from fans of his music around the world to include certain pieces on this album, all of which have been heard and enjoyed in various concerts. As this album does include many of the requested pieces, it has turned into a private concert of PLC's music that you can enjoy at your leisure. Therefore the album is quite simply 'Only For You'.
