Music Recovery Project
Catfish John has just finished going through many years of recordings that he has collected throughout his career . Some recordings were done on 1/4" reel to reel, some on 1/2" reel to reel, cassette tape, multi-track cassette tape, DAT tape, magneto optical disc, and CD's. Because of the many different types of media used he had to acquire the equipment to play it back, such as the reel to reel machine pictured. Some of the recordings were over 40 years old and had to be handled very carefully. Due to advanced music software now available it was possible to recover a lot of songs that otherwise would have been lost.
