Iyasoff Büläge

This reel to reel tape was a gift from Rafael Ilyasoff to Shemsiye and Salih Apakay.
This tape is smaller than most and is 20 minutes per side.  I pushed both sides together and the audio is the above video.  The quality, like the others fluctuates.  This tape was warped, dry and somewhat crispy.  It's amazing that I was able to extract decent quality audio from this.  I am pleased.

Muhamedcani Tape

This is a two part Tatar musical concert, recorder live Just like the others, the quality fluctuates. Some of the content is just sublime. It is likely to have been recorded in Kazan.
