This audio clip of a
circa 1964 practice session of "The Abstracts" was
recorded on 1/4 inch tape, at 3 3/4 inches per second,
using a mono reel to reel tape recorder and microphone.
Hopefully, this helps explain the poor sound quality;
however, as this is the only surviving recording of the
group, we felt its inclusion was appropriate. The
song is "Some Other Guy" (1962) and the practice session
was at the Crosby Labour Club.
