Item-ID: AFC 2011/053: SR717 An unidentified female singer performs eight songs before a live audience, undated
Rack number: RXH 5594
Extent: 1 sound tape reel (polyester, 00:28:00) : analog, 3 3/4 ips, quarter track, stereo ; 7 in.
Logger's note: An unidentified female singer performs eight songs before live audience. She [probably] accompanies herself on guitar. The timeline for Side 2 (a duplicate of Side 1) is slightly different.
LC engineer's note: The tape appears to have been recorded on a four-track (multitrack) machine due to the way the tracks are organized. As a result all files from this tape were from one side of the tape, as opposed to a true quarter-track tape, which would need to be flipped to play back the other side. Both files contain the same content; it is not a mistake in the transfer.
