    Rolling Stones Eleven 15 IPS Reel-to-Reel Tapes Including the Rewind Album (circa 1982-1985). Directly from the collection of a former radio DJ accompanied by his signed letter of provenance giving the history of tapes. He writes, in part: "Before CDs really took over and became mainstream we played records on the air (mostly 45's). They tended to be scratchy after they were played for a time and that really bothered me when I heard it on the air. Someone from the record business mentioned to me that when the radio station would add a current song for on air, I could request the record company send to the station a 15 IPS reel to reel of the song...I would dub the song onto something called a "cart"...the quality was always be [sic] great, we wouldn't have to worry about clicks or pops." The reels include most of the song comprising the album Rewind, including "Miss You", "Brown Sugar", "Undercover of the Night", "Start Me Up" (two copies), "Tumbling Dice", "Hang Fire" (two copies), "Emotional Rescue", "Beast of Burden", "Fool to Cry", "Waiting on a Friend" (three copies), and "Angie". Additionally 15 IPS versions of "Undercover", "Slave", "Harlem Shuffle", Genesis' "Man on the Corner" and Mick Jagger's "Just Another Night" and the Jagger/Bowie "Dancin' in the Streets". Condition: All examples have been stored in a dry, cool environment and appear visually to be in excellent condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
