Coming Soon: The Audio Archives

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Dallas, Tex., Aug. 24 – We are currently sorting through hours upon hours of audio interviews recorded during the Hinman, Tate, LaBianca and Shea investigations. In the coming months, we will begin posting these historic recordings, all digitally remastered from the originally reel-to-reel tapes. Recorded in 1969 and 1970 by Inyo County Sheriffs, LAPD, LASO and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, the tapes include interviews of Manson family members, associates and witnesses.

    Finally something new to get excited about…..

    Great find. Congratulations!
    I’m Curious — where’d you get the tapes and who can you tell us will be available to hear besides the names we can see on the boxes in the photo? Anyone from the first few weeks after the murders occurred? ?

    • cielodrive.com says:

      Thanks Tom. I’ll make a list at some point, but at the moment I’m not sure which recordings will be posted online. There are several hours here and I’m still sorting through most of it. I can say that there is nothing from the first weeks after the murders. The earliest recording is from October 3rd, 1969. I’m launching that one tomorrow.

    These audio recordings will be a godsend. Will they be in a MP3 format?

    • cielodrive.com says:

      Hi Johnny, I thought about hosting it as mp3, but decided against it because of the bandwidth. Having a few wouldn’t hurt, but down the road, when several hours are posted, it would be a heavy load.

  10. johnny says:

    If you need any help or a second set of ears let me know.
    Again, thank you for bringing these tapes forward.

    Do you have the interview with Jay Sebring’s butler, Amos Russell? I think it was the LAPD which recorded an interview with him.

    • cielodrive.com says:

      I have a good handle on everything right now, but thanks for the offer Johnny, I appreciate it. As far as Sebring’s butler, I don’t have any recordings of him. If a tape of him still exists, I’ll try my best to obtain it.
