Collection Technical Notes
Tapes are the original field recordings on five-inch reels donated to the LLA by Eric Hamp. Mrs. Margot Hamp operated the (Magnemite) tape recorder. For digitizing purposes, the central track was read by Tracks 2 and 3 of the quarter-track TEAC A-3440 tape recorder. The recordings are marred by persistent crackles. After the digitizing, most of the tapes were transferred to new reels. The WAVE files have now been converted to MP3s.
