Please note: the condition of the master tapes is not great because 37 years have passed, but these performances are very watchable and the sound quality is good. For this reason, this set of DVDs is priced below the other sets of discs we have released of the 1967 American Legion and CYO Nationals, and the 1972 Drum Corps International Championships. This material was originally videotaped by Mike Rounds for the Velvet Knights as a training tool. Mr. Rounds has spent a great deal of time restoring the footage to the best condition possible and the result is shows not seen in three and a half decades!

Please allow up to six weeks for delivery. These sets are made up one at a time.
