    This review is from: 2010 Edinburgh Military Tattoo (DVD)

    The Edinburgh Military Tattoo first started in 1950 as part of the Edinburgh Intenational Festivial. It was a brave Post War arts and cultural project. Scottish Command wanted to play its part in the show. Developing further on the basic military displays that were given in 1947-49 on the Castle Esplanade, the Tattoo was first fully staged in 1950. Perhaps the most serious threat today is the general reduction in British military bands due to constant, never ending cuts. The pipes and drums of the Scottish regiments, the heart of the Tatto each year, are threatned with becoming just one generic pipe band as part of the new Royal Regiment of Scotland umbrella formation. This alone could turn the Tattoo one day into just an International variety act show with mostly civilian pipe bands.

    The 2010 DVD package of the Tattoo is as impressive as ever. The full show is presented with nice commentary provided by a new gent who has replaced the reknowned Ian Flemming who recently passed away. Flemming had done the BBC commentary for the Tattoo since the 1960s and was essentially the voice of the Tattoo on BBC.

    The massed pipes and drums lead off after the opening fanfare. Following is an interesting display by the Polish Border Band who are given a little more time than the usual 5 minutes allotted to many acts. The ever-present New Zealand Army Band do their hyper pop music routine which always seems popular, if just a bit too silly at times. This ensemble is a brass band as it does not contain any woodwinds.

    The Tattoo Highland Dancers have the usual selection of beautiful and cute lasses filling the espanade. For a change they do their modern take on Scottish Dance to the music of traditional pipes and drums. This is only fitting as the tattoo in early years had a lot more traditional regimental dancing than it has today. Why is this so? The lassies are surely bonnie to watch, but a display of the old sword dance by the regimental dancers of the Scottish regiments would surely be nice to see again every few years.

    An interesting foriegn guest this year was the Royal Jourdanian Army band, pipes and drill team who provide a strongly Arabic flavor to the show. They are fun to watch. Their music is an often bizarre mix of pop classical, Arabic and Scottish pipe tunes!

    The massed military bands at the Tattoo tend to mostly come from the Guards in London these days. I guess the scarsity of regular line bands in the British army has the Guards doing double duty at many Tattoos these days. The Coldstream and Grenadier Guards are always nice to see, and while they march on to a nice old favorite “When the Guards Are on Parade”, The music quickly goes down with rock and vocal themes making for an odd display. Military bands must go with the times I guess, and one should be thankful we don’t have a rap or hip hop medley here I suppose! The music returns to sanity with the “The Road to the Isles” just before the massed bands finale.

    This DVD is a quality production with the usual behind the scenes featurette which has an interesting exchange between the directors of music of both Guards bands present. This alone is worth seeing as its quite informative and amusing.

    Also included is about 30 mins of footage showing the huge Salute to Australia Tattoo held earlier in the year Down Under in Syndney. Many of the same bands are featured, but their are some noted additions. The PLA Central Army Band of China is included, as well as the Russian Army Directors Band. A Tri-service Australian display by the bands is featured along with the guest British bands. A great extra to have.

    A nice 60 year salute for sure. One wonders though how much longer with the ever changing times the tattoo will be able to retain its military origins. Enjoy it while it still resembles that tradition somewhat.

    The production on this DVD was great, but afaulty section in the disk prevented me from giving it a ‘five star’ rating. I sent an e-mail to the company but I did not receive an answer. Poor customer relationship.

    No problems with my DVD copy contrary to the other review on this product. Was enjoyable and will watch it again from time to time. Included commentary edited into the show to describe the participants. I can see how this “modern” tattoo might not please someone looking for the traditional one as many of the bands broke off into more modern, even jazz renditions of marching songs. But if you are looking for good entertainment in this vein, you should enjoy the 2010 show. The one bad note is that the picture quality suffered from time to time of lack of crisp focus. That would be the fault of the editing/production people and doesn’t take a lot away from enjoying the music and atmosphere of a tattoo.
