that posted the information on " Preserve our Drum Corps Memories"

My latest installment includes the 1967 New York Kingsmen recorded at
the Garfield Invitational ( I was there that night )

The New York Kingsmen were the result of merging two corps into one giant corps ( for that time ), I believe it was Harvey Berish who engineered the merger. I once e-mailed him with the question what year it was- after six months I received a response from him " he couldn't believe anyone remembered them, including himself! "

The corps had uniforms that appeared to have been purchased at the " South of the Border souveneir shop " ( notorious eastern tourist trap )
and there scores usually reflected the notion that only judges understtod the nuances of drumming and drill, but horns - WOW - even though their musical book resembled that of a wandering guitar trio at the local cantina.

The OTL ( IMHO ) is the most outrageous in your face of " Malaguena " ever performed, and the OTF rendition of Brazil has you banging on pots and pans or whatever you have handy.

The rest of this edition is Skyliners from 66 and 75, Sunrisers from 63 and 68, and Fabulous Crusaders from 1969

In case you haven't heard of the site, here is the url

Check it out, it has something for all DC fans :wink:
