In October 1984, The Central Band of the Royal Air Force, The Band of the Royal Air Force College, The Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment and the Western Band of the Royal Air Force took their places on the platform of the Royal Albert Hall, London, as the 'Massed Bands of the Royal Air Force' for the very first time. This first concert, and each subsequent one, has been recorded.
