4-Track



The 1964 Sony 4-Track


I was at my folks this weekend and my mother ran across this picture my father had taken for her in his dorm in 1964 while he was stationed at Sembach Air Base, West Germany (yes, that's her in the frame atop the right speaker). He still has all those same tapes, and they all still sound as if they were recorded yesterday (despite the fact that there were no consumer digital recording devices in 1964) though he now sports a TEAC player run through his Bose Acoustic Wave Machine. My father has always been a music lover, and this was the first home audio equipment I remember growing up. I've posted about the reel-to-reel several times before, and was thrilled to find this picture.
