Most repackaged earlier releases, but there were some items given their first reel tape issue. In a handful of cases, a few tracks were dropped for reasons of time.
Early entries had packaging and notes consistent with Omega's original standards, but that changed along the way when the New York version of Omegatape took over. Eventually many of these titles would be downgraded to MTF3 releases: 3. This release combines ST and ST The brasses and reeds of the Bay Big Band are wonderful, and so are the strings when they are treated as accompaniment. This should be required listening for every fan who remembers the great days of Goodman and Shaw.
Or perhaps it was just a bad day for all. Unauthoried reissue on CD by Fresh Sound. If he existed, it's anyone's guess. The side two titles are apparently taken from ST An Omegatape catalog lists a different set of songs on side two.

Reissue of ST and ST From this point forward the one-hour series used an STF prefix. No notes, just a list of titles and a generic Omega blurb on the back. More sloppiness: Bob Hymn To The Sun - The Tex Morgan Orchestra - The Second Solid Album Of Glenn Miller conducted some of the tracks heard here, but it's padded out with Francis Bay, Maxwell Davisand others some of them also appearing on the ' Tex Morgan ' tape. Omits: Skyliner Barnet version. Later 3. In fact most of these performances maybe all except the last track are by Larry Chesky and his Orchestraone of the top polka bands in the country.
A few of the songs are mistitled, Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston - Take Two accident or design. Omits: Blue Danube from In the Mood Francis Bay Orchestra MTF At this point in the devolution, the mono versions were becoming more common than the stereos, but neither sounded good at the 3.
Also the mono tapes were labeled '2 track', but whether they really were is unclear. Half-track machines had become obsolete, and half-track mono tapes wouldn't save on costs because they'd use just as much tape as quarter-track stereo.
Note the cover sloppiness, claiming simultaneously that the tape is 7. This also means At Last is promised on the front, but not among the titles listed on the back. May or may not be the mono equivalent of STF above. From ST Reissued by Hymn To The Sun - The Tex Morgan Orchestra - The Second Solid Album Of Glenn Miller. LP: OSL From: ST LP: OSL 9.
Petrouchka: From ST LP: OSL 8. Reissued on CD by Accord. Beethoven from STD Schubert reissued on OSL This series of "minute spectaculars" began while Omegatape was still under Hubert's management.

This reel appears to combine portions of two different recordings. Who was Paul Paulaski? The remaining "long-playing" releases STF 3. These performances were licensed from a Hamburg distributor and had appeared under various pseudonymns on labels like Crown, Diplomat, etc. Easily the most bizarre Omegatape coupling ever. Repackaging of STF above.
At this point in the devolution, the mono versions were becoming more common than the stereos, but neither sounded good at the 3. The remainder of the titles on this page are 7. Licensed from Club Francais du Disque. Licensed from the As Death Embraces - Haken - The Mountain Francais du Disque. From STD An odd quarter-track release of ST using the half-track catalog number.
