Subject: RE: Words for Abenezer Cobb
How I miss my lovely old tape recorder - I used to record loads of things on old computer tapes split to the right width, on 7 inch reels at the slowest speed they could hold loads of stuff. It was the only recorder I have come across which reproduced sounds so exactly.

I could hear a song and then go home and record it. I would listen to it a few times and sing along, then I'd be able to remember it all the time - which makes forgetting such a shock.

Ah well - growing old is a bugger, but rather that than the only alternative option.
