The World Pipe Band Championships have been operating regularly since 1930, when the Scottish Pipe Band Association (today known as the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association) was formed. For competitive bands, the title of World Champion is highly coveted, and this event is seen as the culmination of a year's worth of preparation, rehearsal and practice.
Saturday 11th August 2007 saw 286 bands descending upon Glasgow Green to decide who would be the next World Champions over 8 Grades. The rain couldn't dampen the spirits of the bands or the fantastic Glasgow crowd in what was yet another exciting competition.
This CD includes recordings of each of the seven lower-placed Grade One bands' performances of their 2 sets, with a tune listing. The soundtrack is identical to the vol 2 DVD of the 2007 event.
