Man, today has been a terrible day for losing people. I’d rather remember Terry Tolkin (Elektra A&R and all around great guy) or Lyman Sheats (He probably programmed your favorite pinball game) but alas, I have no content to share from them. Instead, I guess the post from today will be Meat Loaf. I don’t know why I used cassette to record this- the DAT machine must have been in the shop. I also taped Fishbone Lovelines on cassette around the same time, so this must have been the reason.
Also, this is the maiden voyage of a new cassette deck- the Nakamichi 670ZX. I was gifted this deck(!)- thanks Carlos. When I play tapes that are a bit flawed, the Dragon auto-adjustment freaks out a bit and they sound muffled. This deck is actually better for those tapes. You will hear a little wow/flutter at the beginning of the tape but it recovers quickly.
