THIS DELICATE,RARE, MUSEUM-QUALITY LOT IS OFFERED AS IS, AS SHOWN, WITH NO RETURNS FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
WILL DO THE BEST TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND HAVE HAD A COUPLE DOZEN TAPES PLAYED TO CONFIRM CONTENT, BUT DO NOT HAVE A 15 IPS PROFESSIONAL PLAYER TO CONFIRM ALL SONGS ON ALL TAPES.
THE TAPES HAVE BEEN ARCHIVED AND ALL CATALOG NUMBERS MATCH EXISTING BOXES AND STUDIO SHEETS, AS WELL AS THE VEE JAY CATALOG.
YOU ARE PURCHASING ONLY THE TAPES AND PACKAGING, AND I AM IN NO WAY ABLE TO SELL COPYRIGHTS TO THE MUSIC. MANY STUDIO RECORDINGS HAVE NEVER BEEN HEARD SINCE THE NIGHT THEY WERE PLAYED WITH CONVERSATION BETWEEN ARTISTS AND VEE JAY OWNERS.
