    Rolling Stones Exile on Mainstreet recorded from my SACD Japanese copy. Some tracks are amazing sounding, others are just ok, but the SACD is the best sounding copy I have overall.

    So many beautiful decks and R2R tapes! Love this thread!
    Right now I'm listening to a recorded radio show from Japan on a Hitachi EL-5 150 tape. It is smaller than the average 7" tape. Lucked out on a few of these when an older Japanese American gentleman gave them away with a few Japanese enka records. Have really been enjoying them on my Pioneer RT-707.

    Some Jim Reeves, Bill Anderson and Charley Pride somebody recorded 40 or 50 years ago.

    I don’t mind country but I sure wish I could find something else around here.
