Twenty sides

We'd already listened to a lot of The Complete Sousa Marches (Detroit Concert Band under the baton of Leonard Smith) before the mystery fireworks began. After we could see no more we came indoors and listened to the rest of this music. I'm sure that these tracks were recorded in one run-through and without much care (the percussion is too much in the background), but the result is a wonderful treasure, and the brief annotations in the accompanying material are very informative. This boxed set of vinyl is copyright 1982, BOMC 51-6574. A CD version has been issued and appears to be available. We thought of the many times we have heard the band from Camp Mabry.
