Recordings of Recordings – What’s worse for sound quality?

“This makes me nostalgic for a time I never experienced.”

Here’s a nostalgic drive around Plano (Dallas), TX in a 1984 Supra. The driver videotapes his tour using a fairly nice camera; the audio is good, even somewhat ‘noise canceling’. Several songs come on the car audio system, via tape. Interesting listen.

Ever notice how recordings of recordings present the worst ‘sound quality’ in the world? LOL Van Halen coming on at around 3:00 made that ‘riding on the crash cymbal’ opening sound like sheer white noise…or maybe brass noise…
