There is no evidence that the music to be released on FJAR was produced using Stan Page's monster Ampex rig, pictured here on loan to Bob Mielke. 

But it's possible because Page was a noted photographer, jazz recordist and
audio enthusiast who was a Bearcats fan.

Sadly, Stan Page lost all his tapes, photos, negatives, and presumably his Ampexes in the 1991 Oakland Fire.
