    I ran across this recording of the 1976 Bluecoats in a box I hadn't opened in years. I thought now would be a good time to digitize it and share with all the BLUE Alumni and Fans to hear where we came from in history. 1976 was our 3rd Competing year, we competed more including a few contest in Toronto, PA, Ohio and Michigan, we score our first 70 this year, made the US Open and didn't go to DCI in Philly for fear of Legionaires disease. We appreciated our fans, since we first hit the field they were always supportive an we seemed to be crowd favorites back then also. This was the first year we played Bridge Over Troubled Waters which would become our Corps Song until Autumn Leaves made its way into our hearts. But for us original 'coats, Bridge will always hold special memories and since we're now at the ages where we are losing our old friends it's nice to know we'll always have a friend when we need one. Facts: About 40 horns, first show we stepped off from the far sideline, first show we had a flag color change from white with red stripe to Solid red on the end of show reprise of the opener. Truman Crawford arranged music and came in and worked with us a number of times.

    If we are talking from an enjoyment level, they are both pretty close in my opinion. Although I enjoyed 3 other shows more than I did Crown or BD. I thought from a pure enjoyment standpoint, it was SCV, Cadets, Cavaliers, Crown and BD, in that order. If you eliminate the really crappy shades of Cadets Sara Jones narration, I would put Crown above Cavaliers for enjoyment, but it didn't work for Cadets in my opinion a few years ago, and doesn't work for me with Crown this year. The counting was ok, as it is in the original work that way, and was performed very well, but I didn't really like it in the original piece that well either. I thought the top 4 scores should have also been a lot closer than they were, and in my opinion, Crown should have won brass, Cadets percussion, BD colorguard, SCV overall Music GE, and I am honestly not completely sure that Cadets shouldn't have won. Didn't think I would have been saying that at the beginning of the season. But I did think the top 4 were absolutely amazing this season. But definitely one of the weirdest seasons for the top 4. SCV doing an old Cadets show, Cadets using old SCV and Star music, and Crown using what seems to be the Blue Devils formula with Cadets really crappy narration added in.
