This may be the first open reel tape of new music by a major group in ~40 years.

Looking at the packaging, it's clear that whoever produced it never did one before. Nothing on the box spine, no indication of tape speed/tracks (it's 7 1/2 ips, 4-track), woeful "notes" in the form of 4x6 cards with nearly illegible handwriting, no indication of what track follows what other track, etc. But what the hell, it's a start.

The tape stock is excellent, 1 1/2 mil, back-coated.

Plus ... I get a free download :-(

All for a mere $109+shipping.
