Let me be the first to commend the creators of THE RANKS/THE 5TH for 20 years of Excellence. I still remember my first post. I think it was...FOR TELEVISED BANDS ONLY. In the post, I recommended strategic placement of microphones for better recording. The BET recordings at the time sometimes placed cameras and mics on ONE marching musician. And we all judged the entire band on that one person. Today's recordings are sooo much better.

Congrats to THE 5TH!!!!
Do you remember YOUR first post?

I know it sounds strange Supervillain, but it was all so new back then. To me, the 5th/The Ranks was like my first cellphone...no more beepers LOL. At that time, we used to get together...folks from multiple schools... and look at footage. Believe it or not, we didn't have the benefit of huge online libraries of HBCU bands. We actually shared videos IN PERSON and got to know each other. Those were good times.
