|Collection Technical Notes||
This master is almost certainly a copy of the original made by Maurer. (Note: the spelling “Mauer” on the back of the box is not correct.) Both the original and this copy were probably made in the early ’60s. Note: the original recording may have been made on a wire recorder; the location is the University of Louisvile.The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
