universal tape library
The Universal Tape Library is a list of all the material currently held by
Universal Records. It includes material recorded for Zoom,
Arista, Virgin and Chrysalis.
It holds all the master tapes. This includes demos, works in progress, alternative takes, out-takes, live recordings,
final masters and more.
Every commercial release has a corresponding tape in the library. There are also tapes for releases which were planned
but were never commercially released.
I used it extensively whilst helping with the compilation of
Celebrate: The Greatest Hits +,
New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) Super Deluxe edition,
Sparkle In The Rain Super Deluxe edition and
Once Upon A Time Super Deluxe edition.
