Hi Jim,
I do know of a really great compilation of marches...I think they are 
all Sousa but I can't be sure as it is late and I'm tired (just 
finished band rehearsal).  I'ts called 'On Parade' and was arranged 
for our band by Allan Fernie....goes down well with the audiences!
I am also not so sure if it is published yet, if you are interested I 
may be able to find out more for you.

cheers!
