By Request celebrates the 15th anniversary of the hit film Brassed Off! The film told the story of the fictional South Yorkshire village of Grimley and how the local colliery's brass band won a national competition only days after the closure of the colliery was announced. The film mirrored the actual events of 1992 when Grimethorpe Colliery Band became National Brass Band Champions, playing Philip Wilby's The New Jerusalem, just days after the closure of Grimethorpe Colliery itself.

This recording includes the most requested music from the band's 2010-2011 concert programme, including some of the music played on the Brassed Off!soundtrack. Its release is timed to coincide with the band's tour of Australia in July and August 2011.
