  1. Not sure I agree with you on this one...I would hardly call 85 a VERY weak show for them considering it placed second that year and probably would have won in other years. Personally, I consider that 85 show in the Vanguard top 5 of all time. Just my opinion though...
  2. Does anyone have a copy of the original 86 PBS broadcast, taped off of the TV? Not the one that Video Express released on VHS, but the actual broadcast taped off the TV. My reason for asking is on the original broadcast they showed short clips of the corps placing 12th down to 6th in semis. On the Video Express vhs release they cut that out, most likely because there was no reason to have it since the entire top 12 were on the two tape set. If anyone has that excerpt from the original top five broadcast of 86, could you post it??? Again it’s short clips of corps 12 thru 6 from semis. thanks!
  3. For drum corps fans who love marching band too - these two sets are still in great condition and hard to find! 1979 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/333643833189?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 1981 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/333643831631?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  6. I know this isn't drum corps related, but it is something that a lot of you who follow ALL of the marching arts might be interested in...I downloaded the full finals bundle from 2015 Grand Nats and quality is pretty good. Lots of "drum corps" connections amongst the bands involved with staff, directors, etc. Announcing Music for All/Bands of America Audio Downloads We are excited to announce media.musicforall.org – Music for All’s new home for Music for All and Bands of America audio downloads for purchase.

  7. Looking for the following from 1999 1999 DCI Div. 2/3 Finals VHS set (2 tapes) 1999 Santa Clara Vanguard Tour Video VHS I had both but my copies bit the dust... looking to replace them if anyone has them available for sale or trade
  8. IBM did the recordings from 95-98...no Tom Blair, no Larry Rock, etc. those years. IBM meant well, and I’m sure they may have saved some money for DCI since those years things were pretty rough financially, but they did not have the experience to record drum corps. I think it was trial and error each year for them. 96 sounded like the audio was being played through a transistor radio from the 70’s. One good thing in 95 was that they released full quarters, semis and finals on vhs sets that year. The Video Express years before that only offered full quarters or finals on vhs. If you wanted semis, you had to buy each corps individually for $40... The bad thing for 95 was high camera wasn’t offered for sale to the public, although I have seen 95 Cavies high cam floating around on YouTube.

  11. Thanks! there are also DCI yearbooks from many past years on that site too...just search “Drum corps” and they come up.
  12. Wow, interesting read...I’m no lawyer either, but it appears to be a swift kick in the stomach to Tresona. I imagine DCI has its eyes on this as “fair use” and “education” is mentioned quite a bit in the document. Scroll to the end, and you see that it pretty much scolds Tresona for using scare tactics to get people to pay for their licensing service. This ruling could change things a bit in the future for bands, choirs, and yes, drum corps I imagine...
  13. It would be really cool if someday DCI was able to get the rights for the various corps that have been chopped up over the years due to sync rights issues and re-release those performances on a digital video download...I doubt a blu-ray release would be financially possible, but that would even be more cool if that happened :)
