  1. http://www.ebay.com/itm/332158070727?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Great set in great condition - no longer available from DCI - get it while you can!
  2. Black Gold from Tulsa, OK played de Meij's Lord of the Rings back in 1992 and 93 - they were a below 20th place corps each of those years, but it was interesting hearing it done on the field after playing it in college during that same time period. I think the first time I saw them do it was at Preview of Champions at Vanderbilt in 92. I wonder if they procured the licensing for that when they did it those two years? My guess is probably not but ya never know - I don't think they made the video set in 1993 because they were out of the top 25, but I believe I have the video from 1992 quarterfinals when they performed it (they made top 25 that year).
  3. The new DCI online store has opened - it looks good, and the apparel products being offered look like they will be appealing, etc. Sad to see though that the Legacy DVD's are no longer offered, along with the years 2000 - 2009 not being there either...I imagine stock is low and they will only sell those products at shows during the summer until all of the stock is gone. I knew the day would come that those years would no longer be available, but it still seems surreal in this day and age of media oversaturation. The licensing issues are the problem I imagine. Ebay will start to get more business for those items I imagine :)
  4. The video from Pacific Crest's 2016 show is finally up on demand on the DCI website...I think it wins for the most edited and cut show that has ever been released by DCI. I think there is only 6 minutes of actual show posted, the rest not there due to licensing issues I'm assuming. Understandable, but still frustrating and sad for the fans and the performers of PC. Still waiting on Madison Scouts, Jersey Surf, Oregon Crusaders, and Spirit of Atlanta...
  5. Crown 08 - it wasn't the first note played, but it was led into by the Candide opening and then BAM - loudest live drum corps hit I had ever heard (including the live G bugles I had heard in the late 80's and thru the 90's.)
  6. I think most of the DCI live broadcasts are done by the interns they hire each summer, along with maybe one or two a/v people that are paid employees that do it each year... ? Not positive on that, but I don't think they just hire random a/v companies from each area to do it. The DCI guys travel around the country doing the various shows together, thus getting an idea of what to look for with each corps, etc. Someone from DCI correct me if I'm wrong in that. I think DCI even advertises each summer to hire interns to be a part of that DCI Live team to travel to all the shows and do the recording, video, audio, set-up, etc.
  7. 1988 DCI High Camera VHS three tape set from Semifinals, Top 26 corps from Kansas City on ebay now. Tapes are originals from Video Express, high camera version. http://www.ebay.com/itm/332099150368?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  8. Top 21 VHS sets from DCI 2001 and 2002 are for sale on ebay - great condition. 13 thru 21 place corps are no longer available from DCI on video, so if you've got a working VHS player, now is your chance to fill out your collection. :) See 2001 here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/332087376197?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 2002 is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/332087377931?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  9. I miss Star... First time I saw them live was 1988 at Allentown Prelims - there sound was huge, and different from any of the other corps. They unfortunately did not appear again at DCI East until 1992, so I didn't get to experience live that huge sound they had again in 1989, 90, and 91. I loved the 92 show as well, and was also there in 93 at Ypsilanti prelims and got to see and hear some of the booing they received...that show has grown on me over the years, and I feel bad that people weren't more appreciative of it at the time. I know Michael Boo knows a lot more about Bill Cook than I ever could and could add a lot more about him, but after all I have read about him and Star over the years, I don't think DCI would be what it is today without his influence. Not just thru Star, but also thru all he did financially for DCI in general.
  10. I believe the opening Tim Burton music is actually not cut from the CD, only the videos in Academy's show. I listened to the whole set of CD's that I purchased a couple weeks ago, and I don't remember any cuts other than maybe the Cavies jingles section?? Don't quote me on that, I'll have to listen again...but, I think for the most part, shows are in their entirety on the CD set, including the Fix You section of the Troopers and Pacific Crest shows, etc. I'll try and listen again to see if I catch any cuts that I am not mentioning after the first listen.
  11. Got my set yesterday via UPS - all I can say is the same thing every year since Tom Blair and his crew have done it - WOW The sound and video are awesome on the bluray, camerawork is excellent, etc. It really feels you like you are in the stadium watching live, its that good...and its been that way for a number of years now, especially the Lucas Oil stadium years on bluray (09-now) I noticed a lot of little subtle musical things listening with the bluray as opposed to the ondemand videos online. You can hear everything, its awesome.
  12. Digital audio and video from 2016 are up now on marchingmusicdownloads.com
  13. Yeah, that seems like a VERY slow process. I imagine the licensing is more difficult for that and takes more time and money...I am surprised they haven't updated marchingmusicdownloads with more material than what is there. Baby steps I guess...
  14. Just heard back from DCI that the DVDs just came in today...Bluray and cd started shipping already. DVD will start going out today as well now that they have them.
  15. I have an email in to them - we'll see what they say. I'd be even more impatient if I had paid for 2 day air and saw other people receiving their orders before me...you should have them by now if they are in stock. ugh
