Local Note
Transferred from original open tape reel by the New York Public Library's Audio and Moving Image Preservation (PAMI) sound engineering staff at the Library for the Performing Arts on June 27, 2014. To create the streaming file, the sound engineer edited the ca. 2 minutes of leader tape in the middle of the original reel to be ca. 10 seconds for the preservation file, thus the discrepancies in length between the archival original and the streaming file.
