S8L eBay

Not so much about the auction itself, since this tape is still available of course, but this listing provided a rare, brief commentary on the Super Eight Loop style... kind of interesting to read. The seller has a couple of other rare tapes of note...

"Super 8 Loop is Mark Solotroff of Bloodyminded in full-on synth mode. This is a modular wall of sound whose movements are rare but perceptible. Like watching a glacier melt, this is beautiful, peaceful and more than a little melancholy. If you like this check out Greh Holger's tape on Hanson, same kind of slow-moving beauty. Anyways, he has recorded 100 of these bad boys, but this is the first. See where the madness began, and see where a lot of the new 'progressive synth' kids got their spark."
