Fleetwood Recording Company

Post by Groucho » Thu Jan 31, 2008 6:31 pm

I just received a catalog from Fleetwood Recording showing all that is available. I had heard that they lost all their tapes in a fire a few years ago, is this true, and if so, how did they produce these CD'S

If the quality is half decent, I would love to purchase some of the older recordings that would bring back some great memories.

Hope somebody can help me out.

The snow is still coming down, can't wait till Spring.

These are copies from albums, not from the master recordings. Masters were lost, but plenty of Fleetwood albums survive in various collections around North America.

Groucho,

If you go to www.drumcorpsworld.com and look under the Richmond/Wateska CD's. there are many recordings from the 50's on up to the 70's.

O.S.

Being up or should I say down Maine, we always wind up with some type of snow shower sometime during the day or night.

Always have to make sure the snow blower is full of gas.

Quite a few of my friends are going ice fishing tomorrow AM, but I think I will sit back and listen to DC CD's, or read a good book!!

To dam cold for me.

Did you guys have any luck deer hunting this past season? Down East had some decent weather for it.

I would rather sit by the fire place, and sip a good brandy, than go out in the cold and kill "Bambi"!!!

Can't wait for spring when the lakes, ponds, and springs run freely, and we can all go out and drop a line and try to catch a good size trout.

Plus whitewater rafting. Haven't done that since relocating out here in CA.

Just purchased 3 CD's from Fleetwood. The first is a 1958/59 recording of "Off The LINE" with Hawthorne and Rielly.

Boy did this bring back memories. Great recording.

I also purchased two Cadet recordings.

The recording was made in 1962, and I believe it was made at Norwood Arena, which was a race track on Route 1 in Norwood.

On the recording is Boston, Majestic Knights, I.C. Reveries. Listening to Cargo Brennan the solist of MK playing "Now and Forever", and Boston playing "Tonight", remember being there has a kid.

The last CD that I rec. today was the U. S. Air Force recording. What great solist, on that album, John Simpson, Tommy Martin of Skyliners fame.

It was def. worth the investment.
