        Ca. 2007.
        I hope the Lp they copied from wasn't trashed.

          For those who didn't know the history behind the Aqualung tapes.
          yep , I am all for more tull in the game, though my favorite JT songs have little to no drums (look into the sun and reasons for waiting).

            It’s funny...I’ve been watching that auction and I’ve read the label description dozens of times. I’m still not sure it’s a dub of the vinyl. But as it’s gone up quite a bit in the bidding I’m no longer going to snipe it to find out. Pity.

              I am not sure it is a dub of the LP. It seems like it was produced by a real company (although it could just be a made up name). If the company is real I don’t think they would sell dubs of LPs which is obvious illegal. On the other hand, selling a copy of the reel used to make the LP would be illegal too.

              Who knows.

                Maybe sourced from whatever MoFi used when they released it? Why reference the MoFi at all? Did they ever market tape versions of their records? Not that I remember, The EQ on the MoFi vinyl is classic smiley face- when I compared all those pressings a while ago, it was the odd man out, sonically.
                FWIW, an original UK Chrysalis LP is not a good sounding record either. The best of the non-audiophile ones from back in the day were early Reprise pressings. That DCC is very good too, at a price. 'Tis strange....

                I happened to be writing with Steve Hoffman, who knew the history of the original tapes, so I sent him the link and asked him- he might know---

                  Im 99% sure its a boot (dub) its the definition of bootleg itself. For one, the label pasted on the box begs for questions more than it answers. I emailed the seller this is what i got:

                  "Hey!
                  I don’t have any info on this. It could be [dup - my word] I suppose. Very strange item in a very large collection of reels
                  Thanks
                  Jeff"

                    Would any professional company use two TEAC's to make dubs (instead of TASCAM's). Also a master tape at 7.5ips? I googled the "Sounds Like Tube Audio Labs" and there was nothing.
