Just had a quick mess about trying to suss out the tuning Lee used on the crescent tapes,I reckon i's it's around 427 hz with the strings tuned to Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb. seems to sound right. Don't know if the songs are at the correct speed, seems to be a strange tuning? Anyone any ideas?

Yeah, half a step down at about A432 tuning, maybe a bit lower. I go as low as 428. I've mucked with the tape pitch and it's maybe a little lower than it should be but there doesn't seem to be much drift from the original pitch.
