You're bidding on the Safety Copy EQ'd Analog Master Tapes Sides A, B of the Classic Records LP reissue of Ella Fitzgerald's "Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie!".

When Classic Records mastered a title from the original master tapes, they often ran a safety copy concurrently while cutting the master lacquer.  This was done often at the behest of the content owner to help insure against a loss of the original master in transport back to the tape vaults.  These 30 ips eq’ed copies have the same equalization applied to them as is on the Classic Records LP’s but represent the absolute closest one can get to the Original Master tape.  Further, since Classic routinely obtained the “flat original master tape” to master from, these tapes are the equivalent of the industry standard “cutting master” used for virtually all original LP’s given the difficulties of cutting from the flat master tape in production.  These are completely unique and offer playback fidelity, including rock solid frequency response, spatial detail and nuance that rivals the original master tape from which they were made making them the penultimate audiophile format.  A suitable analog tape machine that can handle the 14” reels and 1/4” analog tape at 30 ips is required for playback.

Each master tape is packaged in the original cardboard box to preserve their collectibility. Light shelf wear.
ULTRA RARE item... Good luck!
