AC/DC, METALLICA Recordings Among ‘Lost Tapes’ Waiting To Be Reclaimed

According to Ronan McGreevy of The Irish Times, an early version of AC/DC‘s “Thunderstruck” and a recording of METALLICA performing with Marianne Faithfull are among the mountain of tapes from the old Windmill Lane recording studios in Ireland that are waiting to be reclaimed by the artists or recording companies that recorded them.

More than 1,000 tapes, weighing a ton, are filling up the attic in the new Windmill Lane studios in Ringsend.

If the two-inch multitrack tapes — which were used in the days before digital technology took over the studios in the middle of the last decade — are not reclaimed by May, they will be destroyed.
