CABINET OF CURIOSITIES: PINK FLOYD MEDDLE JAPAN REEL TO REEL TAPE TOSHIBA OXA-5084 4TRACK 7 2/1IPS RARE
But $9,999.99? You must be kidding! The vendor writes:
PINK FLOYD MEDDLE JAPAN REEL TO REEL TAPE TOSHIBA OXA-5084 4TRACK 7 2/1IPS STEREO
HOLY GRAIL FOR PINK FLOYD COLLECTORS WORLDWIDE.
IN 1971, TOSHIBA MUSICAL INDUSTRIES JAPAN RELEASED THIS ITEM, BUT SOLD POORLY, SO THERES ALMOST NO SURVIVE COPY FOUND EVEN IN JAPAN. VERY SMALL QUANTITY WAS MADE WHEN RELEASED, AND KNOWN AS FAR BETTER SOUND QUALITY THAN USUAL US REEL TO REEL TAPES.
THIS ITEM IS VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF BY PREVIOUS OWNER, REEL TO REEL COLLECTOR FROM 1970S, SO CONDITION IS VERY CLEAN. TAPE BOX HAS SMALL STICKER ON REAR. TAPE HAS ORIGINAL CLEAR PLASTIC COVER AND LEAD IN AND LEAD OUT TAPE ATTACHED BY PREVIOUS OWNER. JAPANESE LYRIC INSERT INCLUDED IN VERY CLEAN CONDITION.
I WILL SEND THIS ITEM ONLY BY REGISTERED, EXPEDITED AND INSURED AIR MAIL, NOT $3
GOOD LUCK FOR BIDDING.
THIS IS ONCE IN A LIFETIME FIND.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
