Help needed in Oakland, CA. Missing master tapes !

Help needed in Oakland, CA. Missing master tapes !

I'm hoping that somebody out there can help...

This time last year (Dec 16th 2009) in Alameda, CA my brother-in-law, Nigerian musician Joni Haastrup (who has played with Fela Kuti, Ginger Baker, Chris Isaacs and many others), lost the contents of his storage space at an auction. Due to bad health he has not been able to work and was behind with his payments. Somebody bought a box of 2" and 1/4" tapes with his life's work on. There was all kinds of amazing unreleased material from the 70s that could be used to generate much needed income for him now.

Did anyone go to this auction or buy any used tape around this time ? Please get in touch if you can help. Thank you !

Tim, keep an eye on Craigslist, if the tapes stayed local, there is a good chance they will end up there.

I wish you luck, hope you can find them.
