Jack, this sounds like an exiting project.
I for one would love if you convert a couple of your more memorable tracks to MP3 and post them somewhere where we could have a listen.
You might be surprised what we can appreciate, even if the banjo strings were made of Woogy Mammoth hair.

Yes, I said Woogy. When I was a kid I used to ask to wear the woogy socks on cold days.

It's a good thing those reel-to-reel tapes made it onto the ark, so they weren't lost in the flood.

wink Love ya, Jack.

Murph, I'll see what I can do.

J.P., Boy, you are not kidding. Many of these tapes are nearly 50 years old. They are deteriorating fast. I have to clean the heads and capstan on the tape deck after every pass, thus the urgency to get them into the digital realm.

Me too.

A real labor of love. I look forward to hearing more (literally and figuratively) of the process/progress.
