    How about this:

    - History of Rock & Roll 1969 version
    - Host Humble Harve Miller.
    - 2-trk mono reels @ 7½ ips
    - The sound quality is superb..
    - After inspecting the entire collection of reels, I would have to place these in the close to near mint (NOS) category affected only by age and not human wear & tear. Whoever owned these reels before me took very good care of them.

    - (part of my collection)

    I realize this is an old post -- but how does this NOS 7 1/2 ips tape sound? Was it manufactured by Ampex?

    Early 60s, 10.5", 15ips, mono tapes from Desilu (complete with paperwork) of the Lucy Show and another of Joey Bishop doing spots for a cigarette company, unedited. Flubs and all.

    Sorry for the delayed response, never realized anyone ever responded to that post :)
    Yes, it`s an Ampex recording, definitely sounds superior to my well-worn original vinyl copy. Over the years, I`ve managed to pick up a number of NOS tapes such as this, including The Allman Bros. Live At Fillmore East, Dave Brubeck`s "Time Out", Ginger Baker`s Air Force, all sound like brand new....

    picked up a pretty darn good cond.copy of Moody Blues 7th Sojourn today for an old IOU...GReat score as I got home & checked it out more fully and realized it's a QUAD recording !! Gotta mix it down to 1/2 Tr ?? 15ips as I don't have a quad set up.

    Just spend €50 on 9 maxell ud 35 90 tapes.

    Fair price i think, never bought any tape like this before, mostly the cheap basf and agfa stuff which shed all over the place.

    Nice one!

    I just passed up a 15 IPS, 2-track copy of that album from the 'Bay' seller in Florida. For the price, I thought it a bit much.

    Maybe it will go up again for less. Hope so!
