Master Quality Reel To Reel Tape!
Exceptional Audiophile Sound! This Is As Close To The Original Master As You Will Get!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Chasing the Dragon have become known as one of the leading producers of audiophile recordings. After popular demand, they have decided to release their original 'Chasing The Dragon' recording as a copy master tape which contains 16 tracks of pure joy!

Featuring selections from composers and musicians that include Vivaldi, Mozart, Ellington, Rachmaninoff, Verdi, and more, this 1/4" Master Tape Copy was created from the 30IPS 1/2" Running Masters at Air Studios.

"Our tapes are always recorded from the original copy master, to give you the closest approach to the original recording." - Mike & Francoise Valentine

**It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.
