What would we be some of your favorite drum solos? I know that today's corps don't really do a drum solo, so most of mine are from years gone by.

1. Black Market Juggler...........Bridgemen (82,83)

2. New Country...........Madison (80)

3. Flight of the Bumblebee..........Phantom Regiment (77,78)

Sure can't argue with Black Market Juggler. A couple of others come to mind:

Anaheim Kingsmen 1974 - the break in Symphonie Fantastique. Loved the sticking in the snares.

SCV 1974 - The solo in Young Peoples' Guide. Criminy, that was one tight drum line!

Several Cavaliers solos come to mind, like the drum solo in Peterloo (1992).

Honorable mention from the pre-DCI era: 1968 Kilties drum solo going into Yes, Indeed. They tied St. Joe's for high drums in Finals. Listening to this solo gaves a good reason why.

1970 Boston Crusaders - Solo going into the closer of California Dreaming. Love the groove the timps establish to start things off.

DCI used to market a video of high scoring drum lines from 1974-roughly 1993. It was a wonderful of drum and color guard features. Good stuff. I purchased mine in the video cassette era. Wonder if it was ever re-released on DVD?
