Please accept our assurance that every step has been taken to overcome the various challenges presented by 27 year old 7.5 ips reel tapes - mysterious interferences, frustrating omissions, and some sticky stuff of unknown origin - in order to transfer, edit and master this music in a way that faithfully celebrates its original performance.
