1973 Drum Corps International Championship


This long-awaited DVD set has 10 of the 12 finalists full performances from DCI’s second championship in Whitewater, WI.  One additional corps has only a short clip (Argonne Rebels’ exit) and, unfortunately, the Belleville Black Knights’ footage was taped over many years ago so it is not included.  This release comes from the archives of the Troopers and Blue Stars, both of which receive a portion of each sale along with DCI.  These shows have been restored from the original reel-to-reel videotapes by Scott Gordon who has also prepared six other DVDs we previously released over the last five years.

You’ll get to relive — or see for the first time — iconic productions from the following corps — Santa Clara Vanguard, Troopers, First Federal Blue Stars, Madison Scouts, Kilties, Anaheim Kingsmen, 27th Lancers, Muchachos, St. Andrew’s Bridgemen and Stockton Commodores, plus the final 1:04 of the Argonne Rebels playing Stars and Stripes Forever.  There is also a 12:28 documentary prepared by Scott Gordon that details how these tapes were saved, restored and brought to life through a series of computer processes.  And top top off the set of shows, we’ve also included the 23:12 retreat ceremony and announcement of scores, with the Pasco, WA, Columbians playing all the finalist corps onto the field.
