Reprise Stereo Sampler [Recotape U.K. Mail-Order Gift Offer]
1969 UK Reprise
In the U.K., this sampler was available as an exclusive "gift offer" via mail-order coupon.
From an ad in the March 1969 and February 1970 issues of "Tape Recording Magazine":
"This outstanding GIFT OFFER is made to enable you to verify the excellent quality of RECOTAPE RECORDING TAPE and to enjoy the superb music on the 40-minute REPRISE SAMPLER Tape. ... not available elsewhere in this country..."
From the back of this 7 ½ ips reel-to-reel tape box:
"This sampler presents only a small portion of the material available in the Reprise 4-track stereo tape catalog; however, it does offer the listener an excellent cross-section of the Reprise library. Unlike many sampler albums which frustrate the listener with numerous unnecessary interruptions, this Reprise sampler presents each musical selection, complete and uninterrupted, thus offering a provocative introduction to the Reprise catalog while providing listening enjoyment. Reprise 4-track stereo tape recordings are reproduced with such unmatched quality and vitality, that each performance becomes a live experience for the listener."
