LC engineer's note: The tape was recorded in the half track stereo format, but was also recorded on a four-track stereo recorder in four-track mono format which results in a confusing number of tracks for this tape, some of which have bleed through and bad crosstalk from the mix of the two formats. However, aside from the main file which is unique content, no other files were made from the remaining contents because they are all incomplete snatches of commercial recordings which hold no value even for research.
