Abalone those were not butterflies, but mythological winged horses, as in the name of the first section, Pegasus.

Well, I guess that would make more sense. :hum:

Although you can probably understand why, looking at the Blue Devils guard, the first image that popped into my head was not a huge, lumbering, ponderous horse. :knight:

I hate to say this, but I had to force myself to listen to the whole thing....I really hoped to not be disappointed by The Cadets show this year, but right now, I am. The music, well...it sounds great...volume is intense, articulation very clear. But the constant talking is just not for me, it sounds like the music is background to the narration. :roll:

Have to listen to the rest later :)
Didn't Santa Clara play some of this music several years ago? Other than that, there's too much diarrhea of the mouth! :td:

Both SCV and Crossmen played Blue Shades back in 1999, and Spirit played it just last year.
