Just got this tape today, sealed no less from 1971. It is 4T 7? IPS.

Came in a fairly plain box, with a typed looking simple label.

The tape is a thin black looking stock on a clear large hub 7" Ampex reel.

Pretty amazing clean tape with very low noise, just perfect! The Blue Danube is divine! I do like me some Strauss!

He and that orchestra must have been around quite a long time. One of my favorite records as a 3-5 year old kid was  my parents copy of a London FFRR 78 of Leroy Anderson's "Fiddle Faddle" B/W  Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu In C-Sharp Minor, performed by Camarata and the Kingsway Symphony Orchestra.
I found another copy of it a few years ago. Guessing very early 50s for that record.
