|Medium||1/4 inch audio tape|
|Contributor||Zide, Arlene R. (researcher); Various male and female speakers (consultant)|
|Notes||This is probably the original field recording (recorded on both tracks); JJT transferred the tape from the old reel and the old film can to this box, 12/13/05. Apparently the switch from the 3.75 ips speed to 7.5 ips was determined by whether the content was speech or singing (the singing being at 7.5 ips). At the beginning of Track 1 an American woman (almost certainly Arlene Zide) says, "Tape No. 1, 1967". Note: a portion of Track 1 from 9 mins., 39 secs., to 11 mins., 58 secs., (as measured on the WAVE file) was recorded at 7.5 ips. At the beginning of Track 2, the same woman says, "Tape 1, Gorum Tape, Side 2., 1967". The speed of the track shifts back and forth between 3.75 ips and 7.5 ips.|
