Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

A minor one, Dave.

Having just gotten back into RTR a few weeks ago after a long absence, and with just 10 eBay 7.5 ips acquisitions under my belt, I'm working with an extremely small sample. But I have a couple of RCA tapes that, when first auditioned, played Side 2 on what was supposed to be Side 1. My guess is that whoever played them last didn't flip over what was the supply reel when it became the takeup...perhaps because the RCA label covers the locking hole on that side of the reel and the user didn't want to punch it open after playing Side 1.

Other than that, no quibbles so far. But, as the lyrics declare, "We've only just begun..."
