  1. For anyone interested - the 2018 downloads are now available on the Marching Music Downloads website thru DCI...that means the CD's should be shipping soon.
  2. The following drum corps cd sets are on ebay right now: 2001 DCI Championship CD Set (3 CD): https://www.ebay.com/itm/332868775098?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 1973 World Open CD Set (Fleetwood Sounds - 2CD): https://www.ebay.com/itm/332867281292?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 1972 Shriner's International CD Set (Fleetwood Sounds - 2CD): https://www.ebay.com/itm/332868781349?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  3. It was up on Friday on the store website and announced as "not available for preorder yet", but then it was not up over the weekend...strange, but not surprising the way DCI pulls stuff on and off the website.
  4. While DCI would have to officially release the numbers for proof, I am venturing a guess that the "profit" is hardly what it used to be for the video releases. I remember years ago (70's, 80's, 90's) that DCI depended a LOT on the sales of records, videos and cassettes - it was a big financial help for them. Not anymore now...in fact, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that DCI lost some money in 2015 and 2016 when they first were called out by Tresona and had to start paying for all of the sync licenses BEFORE they released their video products. And I agree with the other post about music education getting some kind of financial relief from all of this...I don't want to shortchange the composers who write all this great music, but the amount of money that is being paid out to Tresona and other publishing companies for arranging licenses, then performance/master licenses, then mechanical and sync licenses for circuits or DCI is really over the top.
  5. I certainly don't expect the payment part of it to change, but I am hoping that more reasonable charges can be agreed upon across the board...instead of one composer or artist charging thousands (sometimes hundreds of thousands) for their fee to use their music on a video recording, while another composer charges a few hundred. The sync licenses are like that, whereas the mechanical licenses for the CD's are much more in line and I think a little easier to get and more appropriate financially for people like DCI.
  6. Or Blue Stars, or Blue Knights last year. I actually think Blue Stars was the worst with all the chopping up and editing they had to do because of various licensing issues. I really hope that in my lifetime this licensing stuff all gets resolved and we can go back to just having full drum corps and marching band shows on videos. Its so bizarre (still, to me anyway) to not see most circuits offering marching band end of season championship videos anymore...some still do, but many don't due to the excessive licensing costs.. DCA doesn't anymore either. Its so sad.
