This One Time At Band Camp

So, I guess technically this is both my first "band" and first "record." This is the combined 8th and 9th grade players of Maryville (TN) Junior High School, under the direction of Clyde Lee Huffaker. I don't have any specific memories of any special recording session for this, but I seem to remember that Lee normally had mics hanging above the stage (which served as the band room when the semi-rigid walls were closed) so this may just be the result of recordings that he made. There are no liner notes to give any hints - just a list of the players by section. I don't know if this was a one-time event, or if other years produced other records.
