The following is a preliminary list of garage-related tapes or acetates which I have found so far in the
Fine remains. This list does not include rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, soul, or late 60's psych and progressive
music. Those titles will be added as soon as the garage/punk excavation work has been completed. I'm
very interested in the possibility of contacting members of any of these groups, with the idea of
obtaining a scan or photo of the group, to be included on this site. Please contact me (curator, email
address on home page
).

One look at the condition of the tapes and the tape boxes as shown in the photos on this site, should
be enough to explain why so many of the groups names are unknown. I'm looking for help to identify
any of these. All credit will be given on this site, Rochester experts or those locals with long memories
please apply!
