The Frank McGrann Collection primarily contains historic 78 rpm recordings, mostly of concert bands. Ensembles led by Arthur Pryor and John Philip Sousa are represented well, as well as discs by Conways Band. Orchestras and music for soloists are also included, particularly performances by Arthur Pryor and Herbert Clarke.
