Hi Marie, Looking through the Emi tapes I have here personally (I dont
work in an archive) they are mostly 7" from the 60's and early 70's.
Those with numbers are   88/12H,  99/18H,  and  99/12, printed on
the cardboard boxes or inserts. I guess the 18 and 12 refer to the
length in feet. Nothing resembling an " Emitape 4".

I suspect a lot of EMI tapes were brought into Australia. It would
help me if knew what an Emitape  4 looks like. Any distinguishing
marks or places to look? A link to a photo?  Any more help
appreciated from anyone. 

Regards Tim.

 Hi Tim

 Do you have any Emitape 4? That is another I've had some success
 Also Pyral, both pink and blue backing.
 I'm curious to see your findings.
