Atmospheres from the Provence area in France, recorded in 1987

I used a Sony ECM 959A microphone into a Sony WM-D6C cassette recorder (belonging to my friend Walter Brühn), recording on simple TDK SA-X 90 tapes without any noise reduction. Listening via headphones to these recordings after all these years really takes me back to the places (although I don't remember all details), and I must say that I'm surprised how little I notice the lower fidelity and the extra hiss, compared to the much better digital gear I use nowadays - my brain seems to filter that out very quickly. I am not a believer in "analog is better than digital" (or vice versa) but there is something hard to point to about the sound of these recordings that I really like.
