It's doubtful--very doubtful--that this really is a Sun master tape.
There's a detailed article in today's NY Times, and one in yesterday's
Washington Post, about the murky provenance of this reel. For what it's
worth, the picture that accompanies the NY Times articles shows a man
holding up a 1/4" tape.
