I'm preparing a group of pre-recorded 4-track tapes to be sold.


I was just rewinding a Barclay-Crocker 7" reel, Bruckmer. 4 Orcyhestral
Pieces; Requiem I D minor, UNC D 0210.  The tape is black, no backcoating,
and feels like 1.5 mil.  


It exhibits the signs of sticky-shed.  It slows, then stops.  


I've no idea of what stock they used.  If anyone can use it for testing, let
me know by thFriday, close of business or it migrates to the landfill.
