  1. HI!,I am trying to find out if a tape I still have since 1993 can be found on CD. The Copyright is:
    1993 Gaither Music Company Co., P. O. Box 737 Alexandria In 46001 and the producer was STAR SONG SSC 8807. The Name of the tape is OLD FRIENDS and has many many memories.
    I just discovered this tape when I was cleaning out drawers, having NO idea I still had it. Can you provide any information?
    THANKS SO MUCH!
