1972 Drum Corps International Championships DVD

* Through a special arrangement with the Troopers -- and with the permission of Drum Corps International -- we are pleased to bring you performances of eight of the 12 finalists from the 1972 DCI title evening in Whitewater, WI, and a performance of the Troopers from the 1971 World Open in Lynn, MA, plus a short documentary on how these tapes have been restored. The original reel-to-reel videotapes were filmed by Troopers Director Jim Jones, in part as a teaching tool for his members. These tapes have been in storage since the 1970s and have now been tranferred and restored by Scott Gordon, a drum corps fan and video/film technician from California. The total collection includes material between the 1970 and 1978 seasons, including performances that no one has seen in decades.

* The picture and sound qualtiy of these nine performances is excellent.

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