One of the pitfalls of reissuing old material is not knowing if the master tapes are available. For the planned Batsumi reissue these were not uncovered until earlier this month when they turned up in an old plastic bag on the bottom shelf of a warehouse in Johannesburg. I was delighted - even though I had already completed an audio restoration, remastering and test pressing from a vinyl transfer. So its now time to get these down to the studio and see how they sound. Stay tuned!
