Tapes 1 & 2 arrived today. Dave Alvin is spinnin' at 15ips as I type this. Romo says 3-6 won't be far behind. I got serial #61. A big thanks to Doc, Romo, and Paul for a job well done!!

I have to say that I am mighty impressed. I thought nothing could give my Walker TT/Micromagic Magic Diamond a run for it's money when it comes to analog playback. The "Doc"tored RS1500 and Seduction playing these tapes is something VERY special.

It took me a couple of minutes to get my head around the "tails out" concept of the reels (I am such and R2R newbee). Looking forward to having a few folks from my audio group over for some tape and Bordeaux.

Yes I want reply to the topic after 120 days
Well I got to play Side A of The Number White and discovered
my Otari still needs a bit more adjustments and tweeking.
None the less - with the lights out, and the breaker for the fridge
turned off (Small apartment here) I can't believe the sound stage and
how real the music lives in my living room. If she sounds so great with
my modest setup, I can just imagine how a optimized play back sounds.
Thank you all for a great recording, and will get back to side B when
the proper shims come in. I may need some better hubs too, but that
is for a later day.
Now I know how much of the soul, music has lost
going to so called convenience

Yeah!!! Ben got his tape and religion at the same time! Welcome to the fold Brother Benjamin.
That's still one of my favorites. One of these days, I just might buy a back up copy!

I still have more tapes to arrive , so I can't say what will be my favorite yet.  I have a feeling it may be Saxophone Colossus just from titles alone. 
None the less, I better get my dark glasses and black cane, now that I am
a official member of the brotherhood. :)
