It seems that there were enough changes between tape issues that I can place this one exactly at 1976.
This also, was one of my favorite albums, and the wide-open acoustic drum sound on the album is just great..
You can't hear that on the new remixed cd's however.. i suppose there are CDs with the original mix still on them, but I don't know which they are..
Anyways although I wouldn't go so far as to call it a 'rare' tape, this issue is *somewhat* scarce...
Here's another ZZ Tape I picked up later on
You may have noticed the labels came off the tape housings.. a common occurrence with 40 to 50 year old tapes..!
