Item specifics

Very Good: An item that has been used, but is in very good condition. No damage to the jewel case or item ... Read moreabout the condition

You are bidding on 2 Master Audio Tapes Recorded for the Ringo Starr TV Special 1978 at United Western Studios, Hollywood, California. Dennis Drake was the engineer on this project. I went to his website and he spoke of working with Ringo on this TV Special.  The show aired 4/26/78. The show was to promote the "Bad Boy" Album. I did consult with a music memorabilia specialist and he confirmed these appear to be the master audio tapes for the show. Songs noted are "Little Help From My Friends", "Heart On My Sleeve", "Hard Times". (Studio 1 and Studio 2). Dates are 2/24/78 and 3/3/78. Each says 4 tracks 15 IPS.  

Gold reel 250 studio mastering tape 1/2 inch X 2500 ft 1.5 mil with back treatment Scotch 3M. Silver reel (Ampex 406) specifics are covered with studio paperwork and I did not want to remove it, so I cannot confirm specifics on that one. Both reels are 10 1/2 metal.   

I have not tested the tapes so I do not know the full content of them or the quality. I do not know how the tapes have been stored for the last 36 years. I was told they may need to be baked before being played. Tapes and reels appear to be in good condition. Boxes are also in good condition considering their age.  

 I do not have ownership of the songs contained on the tapes and I am selling them for Collector's Purposes only. These tapes are being offered as a physical piece of music memorabilia. This auction does not transfer ownership of any copyrights, reproduction rights or any other intellectual property rights of these recordings or song. Sold As Is.



I will ship internationally. Costs will be calculated at auction ending.

I just wanted to clarify that these are the original studio recordings of music for the show, not the audio tapes of the show.
