Description

[Note from black hardbound catalog:] Fragment. Whenever noises are heard on the tape, they are either from traffic noises which intruded themselves into the area where taping was taking place, or the noises of restlessness and fidgeting on the part of the group, which was present. Taping in groups stimulated the memory. Hearing the singers, the response would often be, “That’s not the way I sang it.” And their variants would be given.
