I’m amazed at the quality. But really Millard was way ahead of his time in terms of the mic quality and location. There weren’t any good sounding GD auds ( a few, yes) from that period, other than Jerry Moore’s Jai Alai tapes. Thanks Mike. 🔥

I know there were lots of early tapers, but I can think of maybe 10 good GD audience tapes pre-79 and nak700/beyer mics started showing up.

So I had access to several of the 70's East Coast tapers** stuff on low gen but I'd still have to go no more than 25 VG+ quality AUD's from 68-78. In fact, a lot of high quality cassettes we traded for in the early 80's were from Betty or Owsley boards, some of that lineage we didn;t know about until years later of course.
**Weinberg, Barry Glassberg, Jerry Moore, Mark Cohen a few others.
