These recordings were Jon’s first attempt at recording with reel to reel tape decks in an effort to get a more studio quality sound.  First trying to record with standard cassette recorders and finding them unsatisfactory, with it’s higher tape speed, the reel to reel tape deck provided superior quality over any other recorders used prior.  With 2 separate tracks to work from, we were able to overdub and play more than one instrument or vocal at a time.  The songs on this page were digitized from reel to reel recordings made made between 1985-87. In addition to writing and recording original music, some cover songs were also recorded.  Some digital restoration & remixing was done in 2013 on some of these tracks: no reply, you wont see me, twist & shout and ballad of john & yoko.
