No covers were issued with these records. Comments: William D. Revelli (1902-1994) was the director of bands, including the Michigan Marching Band, at the University of Michigan for 36 years from 1935-1971. During his 36 years as director, the Michigan Marching Band won international acclaim for its musical precision. Revelli is also credited with innovations that moved college marching bands across the country away from rigid military formations. Among other things, Revelli's Michigan Marching Band was the first to synchronize music and movement and the first to use an announcer. Revelli was enlisted in the spring of 1951 to conduct what was most likely a short-term project with the New England Festival Band. On March 17, 1951 in Lewiston-Auburn, Maine, the band under the direction of Revelli made these six extremely rare recordings, which may in fact be one-of-a-kind. The typewritten labels on the Ely Recording label, which was a custom label for non-commercial use, most likely indicates no other copies of these records or recordings exist, or at the very least these are the master copies. Known on Michigan's campus as "The Chief," Revelli was known as a tough taskmaster. Revelli had a fierce dedication to excellence and drilled the desire for perfection into his band students. One former band member recalled that the "sequence of our attitudes toward him often went from fear to anger to respect to awe to reverence." Another recalled, "He was a tyrant who was feared by many, and an educator revered by all." One of his students from the 1940s recalled the same emotions but noted, "I learned more about music-making in that little class than I had learned in my prior 12 years of private lessons." It has been said that, if asked, "nearly every student who played under Revelli could vividly recount some memory of him; he left a lasting impression on everyone with whom he crossed paths." The photograph of Revilli shown in this listing is for reference only, and is not included with the purchase of these records. Stock #: 78-890
