Reviews

Below is my review for this release and the ratings.
Following on from the Sailing by RESL 15 release, it seems this is another example where the musicians particularly hadn't done enough practice before recording this! I wasn't quite sure why so many people were into the HMS Ark Royal though, which is what this programme was about.
