a tape that old might be knackered,if not kept in storage at right room temp it will stick together or go mouldy and have to be baked,cant see the piont of buying it myself if youve allready got the tune on 12,if it was diffrent cuts then yer i would buy it,respect dougie
It seems to have been stored quite well ..& even it could be a nice material for dubplte cuts..ain't it?
This is the original master tape that was used to press the Strong Like Samson 12" Jah Jah is Calling - Rod Taylor with the B Side Inside Right Dub The catalogue number is SLSD011 and it was produced in 1980. The tape itself is quarter inch and runs at 15ips (inches per second) I have had this tape for the last 18 years and have looked after it well so the quality of the tape is superb and the winner will get a CD recording of the master tape to verify this.
For the sound men out there who like me used to cut dubplates at John Hassell's studio in Barnes, this will be particularly appealing as this was also mixed there - a real piece of reggae history.

Exactly - cuz note on the box is written vocals 1 trk audio 2cnd track 'please sum to mono',
So you'd think its a split track deal with vox acapella on one track,
Also if its EMI tape its probably fine, I think it was some bad batches of Ampex 456 that turned to goo
