Scotch Stamps - Tatar Music Compilation

Now this tape was a bit of a challenge. The source tape is rotting, moldy and twisted. Any attempt to reduce noise reduced far too much of the "essential" audio range. If you can tolerate the "dirtyness" of the recording, it has some of the most interesting content of them all. This may be a last gasp for this tape. Enjoy...

and why is it called "Scotch Stamps"?  Because it's a Scotch tape with postage stamps on the cover.
