RE: Period 2-track tapes

I have a few Peter Bartok mono recordings on vinyl on the Unicorn label, I believe. They were recorded at MIT (probably in Saarinen's auditorium) and sound good.

The Urania percussion tape you mentioned - UST 1204 - is spectacular and absolutely worth listening to, if not owning. Urania tapes were duplicated at Audio Labs in NY under the direction of George Schowerer, a member of the Yahoo reeltoreel group. who recently described the duplication process.

There are also a couple of Urania stereo records of percussion music that are quite good. One of the pieces - Antheil's Ballet Mecanique, conducted by Robert Kraft - was issued on Omegatape ST 6009 and sounds good. There is no mention in the liner notes of the recording engineer.
