Archivist Note

A reel-to-reel tape that was digitized.  The original tape had been unidentified.  The tape was sent for digitzation to Stan Pittman's department in 2010.  The digitized copy was returned and marked,   "mystery tape" Track 2.  it is yet unclear which unidentified reel-to-reel tape this recording goes with, or if it is part of the WAV CDs given by Stan Pittman. Stan Pittman was able to identify the various recordings on this ONE tape and following the final wave sound digital recording in 2015 by MU Department of Information Technology Services, the reel-to-reel tape was discarded by J. Wine.  This is because the best possible recording had been made and the tape would only be in a state of deterioration.
