Posted for Ken Caillat...

Hello, my name is Ken Caillat.  I was one of the producers of Fleetwood Mac,
and I would like to get more information on your tapes, especially the
Fleetwood Tapes.  What size are they, what thickness(2" 1/4") , what format
(cassette, reel to reel) and how many are there.  I own a audio/video tape
preservation company and those tapes, in whatever format, may be extremely
delicate and may be subject to damage if you are not careful. They should be
stored in low temperatures with low humidity until preserved.
 I can help to get the tapes to the rightfull owners if you'd like to give
me a list with names, dates and venues or song lists.  Or I can pass their
names to you.
Thank you

Subject: [ARSCLIST] What to do with 70s Rock Tapes?


I have an odd problem. About 60 concert and radio broadcast tapes of major
rock bands and local Seattle acts, all recorded in the mid-1970s, have come
into my possession. Based on some web research, it appears that these
recordings do not exist as bootlegs. It is quite possible that these are
the only extant copies of these recordings.

A few of the performers on the tapes include Fleetwood Mac, The Pointer
Sisters, Frank Zappa, Deep Purple, Rush and Robin Trower. There are many
other equally important bands and performers.

This stuff is out of my own area of expertise, but I know enough to
recognize that this is probably an important collection. So I'm looking for
a place to either donate or sell the tapes to somebody in a position to
deal with them without diluting the musicians' intellectual property. While
I have the tapes, I don't believe I have any claim on the rights to the
performances they document, so I don't want to make them available through
the bootleg channel.

I have offered to donate these tapes to the Experience Music Project Museum
here in Seattle, but they are not able to accept them. So I'm looking for
other options.

Can anybody suggest any other museums, libraries or private collectors who
might be interested in this material?
