The Mason Taylor Collection

i-gxZGQjF

The guys & gals over at Lossless Legs are in the process of an amazing and significant audio preservation project, through saving the collection and gear of the late Mason Taylor.

due to the diligent efforts of two folks, this collection is saved from possible oblivion.  Master GD tapes, late 70s, early 80s on some of the best equipment known to man at the time.  Expect sources to flow from us, a bittersweet; hope to spread the LLove”

As the root of the philosophy of this site is the idea of saving amazing recording for the future, I’ll create a page at the top with links to these shows.

A resounding round of applause is in order for all who are involved in this project. Hopefully as the years go on, we will get access to more of these types of treasures.
