I remember the flea market set up. That place was sketchy, wasn't it on or near Houston on the West Side? I truly do not recall it's location, but do know we would get there pretty easily from Long Island where we always crashed at my Farmingdale buddy's house. I recall the day in 1984 when we drove in and bought 10 boxes of 10 tapes plus a New Sony TCD5-M at Uncle Steves.!

Uncle Steve's was on Canal (and Sullivan, maybe?), and the flea market was in a parking lot right next door. Wish I could remember the name of the guy who sold/traded tapes there...

I was never interested in his tapes, but remember seeing him when I went to Uncle Steve's (and then later Uncle's).  You are correct on the address.
Normal: Nakamichi CM-700's >> SD 744T (or) Sony PCM-M10
Stealth: CA-14c >> CA 9200 >> Edirol R-09HR
Ultra stealth: AudioReality >> AudioReality battery box >> Edirol R-09HR

This was before I discovered mail trading (and way before the web or even email), so tapes for $5 were hugely preferable to buying vinyl for $20 or more at Second Coming and places like that. Got my first copy of Neil Young at the Bottom Line in 1974 from him, among many others — and got interested in taping in part to have shows to trade with him.

That's cool...If I remember correctly, he didn't sell "bootlegs", he sold "labels in cases"...and threw in the recording.
