Back on Track 

After a months-long hiatus for the pandemic, we've got our tapes back -- sixteen reels, well baked and digitized. Our thanks to Matt Leatherman of Preserve South, who did an amazing job. Now it's on to listening, sorting and preparing masters and artwork for release. We'll keep you posted on the date. But it will be soon, we hope.

Baking Tapes 

My friend Jeff Calder of The Swimming Pool Qs and I took some old master tapes of The Brains to a place he knows to be baked and digitized.

It's an amazing scene. They’re digitizing all of “Mr. Rogers”, “Austin City Limits”, “Eyes on the Prize”, and truckloads more. 

Matt Leatherman will bake the tapes in ovens for days so they won’t crumble to dust when played. Then he will "migrate" the music to super-high-definition digital. 

Things are moving along. I hope to announce our first digital release date to you soon.
