RE: REVIEW: Analogy 003 Peter Erskine Trio Vol. 2

The Tape Project bettered the commercial release in some respects, like low wow/flutter and distortion, but overall I felt the London/Ampex was warmer and more spacious. An engineer friend described the earlier tape stock as "softer" than current issue. It's a mystery to me, but I trust my ears. (Incidentally, the tapes were auditioned on Ken Fritz' magnificent system with center channel off. The London/Ampex played on a Technics 1500 and the Tape Project on an Ampex ATR.)
