    Description

    Skylab 1 (SL-2) Flown Cassette Music Tape Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Paul Weitz, Certified and Signed. A Scotch C-60 cassette with the handwritten notation "SKYLAB PW CASSETTE 4 CMPACK" on each side. Also handwritten on Side 1 is "Mormon Tabernacle Choir". The music selection is quite eclectic on Side 2 based on these handwritten notations: "Cont- Side 1/ Royal Scots/ 2001 [how fitting!] Dr Zhivago Bobby Gentry". Music certainly would have helped pass the time during this landmark twenty-eight day Earth orbit mission. Very fine condition with some label loss on Side 1 apparently from adhesive tape removal. Not tested in a cassette player.

    Paul Weitz has certified this tape on Side 2: "Flown on SL-2/ Paul Weitz PLT".

    Included with this lot is a color photo of Weitz holding the cassette.
