NOTE: “Side 1” or “Side 2” is based on the tape reel when I first put it on the recorder, ie the way it was left when it was last played. It may not indicate the original side numbers, i.e. as from original notes on tape boxes. Also the order of tapes (Tape1, Tape2, 3, etc) is simply the order in which I reviewed them, randomly.
My review started in January, 2018 having received the tapes from Ross MacVicar (Aldun’s son) in December, 2017.
There is well over 60 hours of material here.
