Good years in competition produce albums that seem to have a life of their own. This live recording of the event from 25 years ago saw the Championship at a peak - Strathclyde Police were deemed 'unbeatable' but who were these bands flying in from Canada.
Interesting, too, to see P/Ms Richard Parkes and Terry Lee in charge then AND now. And for the first time in it's history the Championship Banner left Scottish shores with the 78th Fraser Highlanders for Canada.
