1978 Spirit of Atlanta "Let it Be Me," which resulted in a standing ovation for the entire last minute of the show...something I haven't witnessed since.
This is my signature because I'm told I should have one even though I use my real name as my screen name.

1977 Garfield during "I Don't Know How To Love Him", with 80-some horns (including soprano-playing guard members).

From back in the day...

Along with '78 SoA, I'd like to add:
2-7 playing "Danny Boy"
Madison playing"Through The Eyes of Love"
Cavies playing "Softly As I Leave You"
1982-83 BD with the rotation and re-entry.

Garfield 1984 - West Side Story

The build into it, the front at the "Tonight" hit, the z-pull out of it. It was even better standing in the middle of it.

And, although not a quite a company front, the "Z-Pull" always gets me going. The 1st time I saw it live in '83, I was speechless.

Top 5 HAS to include the '95 Scouts rotating company front from that amazing show...or maybe the company front in '97 that included that 45 second-long power chord?
