Second Edition

.

In late summer 1986, The Second Edition quartet formed. A few months later, they entered the fall Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) (S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A., Inc. at that time) Cardinal District (CAR) Quartet Contest and won. Shortly thereafter, tenor Allen Hatton left the group due to time constraints, and Fred Farrell joined the quartet. In the spring of 1987, this foursome qualified at the CAR International Preliminary Quartet Contest to compete in the BHS International Quartet Contest being held that summer in Hartford, CT. There, they placed 2nd. It was in the fall of 1987, following this first International appearance, that they began recording. They finished recording and released "Second Edition 1" in the spring of 1988, and were the first barbershop quartet to offer a recording in the digital CD format. In the summer of 1988, the quartet once again placed 2nd at the BHS International contest this time held in San Antonio, TX. One year later in Kansas City, MO, The Second Edition won the 1989 BHS International Quartet Championship! They were 20 (Doug), 21 (David), 22 (Fred) and 24 (Jamie). The quartet performed together all over the world, until retiring in the early 1990's.
