To create the production master for this product the original analog master tapes were played on an optimized Otari MTR10 and copied to a newly refurbished Ampex ATR 102 using RMGI SM-900 tape stock. Subsequent copies were made on more Otari MTR10s using SM-911 tape stock. Copies are available for purchase in half-track format recorded at 15ips (IEC) on two ten-inch reels housed in two cardboard boxes with UV-coated cover art and liner information, then inside a cardboard slipcase. Copies are also available in quarter-track format recorded at 7.5ips on one seven-inch reel housed in a cardboard box with UV-coated cover art and liner information.
