Introduction

Bevan Robinson, Hettie Johnson and James Meyer "rescued" this collection from Andy Muir's home after he passed. It remained in Bevan's care until she passed it to me in May of 2010, prior to moving to India, for the purpose of preserving and sharing it. Betty Grant, a friend of Andy Muir, had earlier made a copy of the entire set or a large portion of it, and has used those copies to listen to personally or to share with other Baba-lovers. Betty told me she had given some of these copies to various people. A few of the original tapes from this collection were donated by Bevan to the Sheriar Foundation, most notably those in which Meher Baba

was present in 1956. Many, but not all, of these recordings are also to be found in the Meher Center archives. Note in particular that the entire James May series of recordings from 1972 is included, in physically pristine form on reel-to-reel tapes, in this collection, including possibly, one in this series that is missing from the Center collection. No documentation of conditions or restrictions has been found connected with this series in the Muir collection as of 10 May 2010; however, severe restrictions are noted for the Center collection.
