These are 15ips copy masters of each side of Kiki Dee's 1974 album "I've Got the Music in Me", one generation down from the master tapes.
Both reels of tape were found to be shedding badly and needed careful cleaning before we could get a decent copy.
The producer was Gus Dudgeon with recording engineer Phil Dunne, recorded at The Marquee Studios. The combination of Gus's intricate and inspired production with Phil's wonderfully recorded sounds and all the hugely talented musicians involved make this stand out as a classic album. Listen carefully and remind yourself that this was recorded on analogue tape forty three years ago.
Another tape we found was the demo tape for "Little Frozen One", in a labelled box showing all the details of the recording. It was recorded at Tommy Steele's Nova Studios in Bryanston St, London and the date was 10th May 1974. The producer was Clive Franks with engineering by Nova staff Richard Dodds and Aldo. The tape was recorded with the CCIR equalisation curve, but copied here with NAB equalisation which adds a midrange lift to the response.
