Collection Descriptive Notes:
With the exceptions of the first studio master and Drill 19 (recorded by author C.M. Naim), co-author Q.S. Ahmad voices all the drills from Phonetic Drills No. 4 through 18. (The dittoed script apparently used for the recording (q.v.) corresponds to pp. 11-40 of Volume I of Naim’s Introductory Urdu (first edition?)). (Note: Introductory Urdu Reader appears to be the full title of the two-volume set.)
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes are the (10) original studio recordings made at the Language Laboratory in 1965. The authors divided the drills among a series of twenty-two "tapes" (apparently meant to constitute as many class lessons). To avoid confusion in nomenclature, JJT has labelled the studio tapes as such and used the numbers 1-10 to encode the WAVE files; e.g., 7-1, 7-2, 7-3 (=studio master seven with bands 1-3). WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
