Ptah bought a new camcorder back in 1985 or so, and only recently uncovered some old tapes taken when the unit was still a novelty.
Lucky for us, one of the tapes was recorded at the 1987 Annual Rehearsal!
The tape itself is a little tedious to watch for more that a few times in a row, so here are some stills taken from this historic video for your amusement.
