Analog everything

This week I am working to archive and renew the theme Music to the PBS Show "Frontline' composed by Mason Daring. It's a stalwart PBS newsy long form show and the theme was recorded in the early 80's. All analog. I am hearing mono and stereo versions, 15 IPS (inches per second) some encoded with Dolby A. Mostly Ampex 456...and it held up REALLY well! All analog musicians too. French Horn, Oboe, Trumpet, Strings, Timpani.

IT remarkable how well the music holds up. The performance is really quite excellent, mixed originally by Glen Berger at Blue Jay in Carlisle, MA. The sound holds up really well also.

What a blast!
