I do know that the "tails out" as a preferred storage method was drummed into 
my head when I was first working with 1/4" 2-track tapes 25 years ago...
****************

The recommendation on the box for video cassettes is to rewind immediately 
after recording. I don't do that for my time-shifting applications since the 
non-rewound cassette is my indicator that I haven't watched it, but I've noticed 
that if the tape is left this way for several months, there will be problems 
on playback at the beginning of the cassette.

If left tails out, the tape will take on a different "set" than it had when 
recorded. This may not be important for the less critical audio tape, but it 
might be worth considering for high density applications or for very long term 
storage.
