Am recover gives you the power to extract a whole dump/tar from tape and handle that according to your own preferences.

nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
amrecover goes to a deeper level, by working the logs it finds out what to do to get the latest file back. For any file you tell it to get.

If you want to do bulk stuff you can use amrestore to get tar/dumps from tape and have those procesed.
Have you checked the amrestore man page????
man amrestore
In the examples section its usage is shown.
