1983 University of Alabama Million Dollar Band Halftime Performance in Dec. 3 Auburn Game

This was the final halftime show under the leadership of Million Dollar Band director Dr. James S. Ferguson. “Doc” announced his pending retirement from band directing after this game. For this Iron Bowl performance, he put together what was essentially a greatest hits show, featuring musical selections taken from prior halftime shows. Also setting this one apart was a design that played to both sides of the stadium at different times. Selections include Conquistador Fanfare, Georgia on My Mind, Thunder and Blazes, Malaguena and Over the Rainbow. The closer was our unofficial theme that whole 1983 season.
