You can now reach the Fleetwood Web site through DCW

Fleetwood Sound has recently begun releasing its catalog of junior and senior drum and bugle corps recordings on compact disc. The collection includes everything the Revere, MA-based company produced between 1958 and 1980. At the present time there are approximately 120 titles available. More are being added to the site every week and soon all 275 will be available.

As anyone who has been involved with the activity for at least 30 years knows, a devastating fire destroyed the master tapes and back stock in 1975. However, Wayne Terminello and Ray Samora, the Fleetwood owners, were able to secure brand-new or nearly brand-new copies of the albums and all of the remastering work has been done by Glenn Kubacki. The resulting CDs have excellent fidelity and include the original front and back cover art as well.

Click on the advertisement to go to Fleetwood’s Web site and check out the 120 or so albums that are currently available.
