Who performed the best version of Appalachian Spring?
My vote would be SCV '82 (or was it '83)?

Garfield Cadets 1987 was the best, hands down Zingali was revolutionary, as guard kept pushing the visual packages as in what we are seeing today. That season transposed ever so nicely too.
I don't know why I even have this group still on my e-mail server, but
was curious when I saw a post light up....Do you know you are replying
to a 19 1/2 year old post? The original poster could be dead by now....

Yeah, that's Copland's Tenderland. I first heard Garfield play it live at my 1st ever regional, 1996 Drums Along The Rockies" at the no longer existing Mile High Stadium. I'd performed already and got inside just in time, it was also my 1st encounter
with Garfield. That opener melted my heart wide open.... and though I am a biased Santa Clara Veteran, I prefer the 96 opener to the 85 closer. Talk about dynamic contrast! They took us from a ppp to a fff and back down. Too gorgeous for words, get your
hands on 1996 if you've never heard it, Rockford, Concord and Madison are also standouts from the 96 finals recording. If you saw a show that year, you witnessed and heard some of the finest drum corps ever.
