Title: Anyone collect reel-to-reel tapes?
Post by: Steve Mayo on December 31, 2007, 08:07:04 AM
i have finally started, after 10 years in storage, to clean out my office and actually make it an office. not a storage room for beach boys items. i have ran across lots of boxes full of beach boy records, tapes, magazines and the like. one of the boxes i came across has some non beach boys items like reel-to-reel tapes sent to a local radio station back here in the 70's. i have to get rid of some things and have decided not to keep these. before i throw them away i wanted to ask if anyone collects this stuff or has a player and wants them. here is a list:

01) a conversation with elton john... 8/22/76  4 reels
02) king bisquit flower hour... bto & les variations.. 9/8/74  2 reels
03) the bbc presents the kinks.. 1/19/75  2 reels
04) the best of bisquit.. chicago 11/2/75  2 reels
05) king bisquit flower hour.. the band.. 8/28/76  3 reels
06) a conversation with roger daltrey... 11/23/75  5 reels
07) king bisquit flower hour.. procol harum.. 6/9/74  2 reels
08) king bisquit flower hour .. foghat/rory gallager.. 2/13/77  2 reels
09) king bisquit flower hour.. rick wakeman/renaissance.. 11/30/75  2 reels
10) best of bisquit.. queen/the cars.. 12/3/78  2 reels
11) king bisquit flower hour.. harry chapin/manfred mann.. 4/74  reels 2 & 3 out of 3
12) british bisquit.. 10cc.. 8/21/77  1 reel
13) king bisquit flower hour.. grateful dead.. 11/28/76  2 reels


that is what is on the labels. i have a few more that one can no longer read the stamped ink on the box so i don't know if they contain beach boy material or belong to some sets above.

anyone interested let me know.


thanks,

steve

Hm, I know someone with a reel-to-reel player. I'll ask him if he wants any of the tapes.

My friend said his reel-to-reel is broken, so he has no use for the tapes.

You shouldn't throw them out, though.

two old beach boys reel-to-reel prerecorded Capitol tapes now on eBay

the latter is the rare original 7-1/2 IPS variety (it was reissued at the less desirable 3-3/4 speed), though it has no box

I would love the Roger Daltrey one, but I don't have a player.
