This Teac 80-8 came to us from its previous owner in Austin, Texas.  Interestingly, included were several 1/2" reels.   One of the reels contained a "live" recording of Willie Nelson performing at River Bend Church in Austin shortly after the IRS problems.

This model recorder was used to record the Star Wars R2D2 tracks and was used by the Eagles, Boston & Kansas to develop their material before going into the studio.

Operating Manual

I found it interesting to read in the January 1981 Modern Recording & Music magazine that the Doobie Brothers mailed 8-track Tascam tapes back and forth to each other as they were working on new music.
