I finally got a copy of this and last night I had some quiet time to myself and I played it.
I saw some bitching, somewhere on the Internet about ‘really poor sound’, which had me unnecessarily worried; my god, it’s unprofessional *practice* tapes from 1965!
You can hear ALL the instruments and they are well balanced, even if a bit mid-fi.
The packaging is really nice and the booklet is huge and amazing and I just wanted to say how happy that I am that I bought this and any fan of Mike Taylor with reasonable expectations will be thrilled with this! Hugely recommended.

“This is the first ever release of a newly discovered tape of this legendary British jazz quartet's final rehearsal before going into the studio to make their fabled Pendulum album in October 1965.
Recorded in Taylor's grandparents' London living room by Reeves, it's has striking presence and immediacy, and will fascinate all admirers of this most enigmatic of composers and musicians.
It comes in a hand-numbered gatefold sleeve, with a large-format booklet describing Taylor's life and work, full of rare images and memorabilia.”
