Upon further investigation, it appears that this tape (Sony PR-150) suffers from SofBinder Syndrome (SBS) which is corrected using the opposite approach as SSS. That is, instead of baking the tapew, you chill it (and the tape deck) to around 40 degrees (F). Haven't tried it yet, but Richard Hess did a test on it earlier, and found that it responds to cl playuing, not baking (which can make the condition worse).
