Mashup: Spot 3, # 3 Rhythm & Blues left side and Spot 7, #11 T-40 right side.

This is from my collection of open reel tapes. I can’t remember if this tape is from my original collection from the late 1970s or Ian Allen’s collection of tapes given to KPFA. My understanding is the collection that Ian acquired was from tapes that were to be erased and reused. Luckily, a lot of those tapes were saved thanks to Negativland.

There’s part of an instrumental version of this ad on Negativland’s third album from 1983, “A Big 10-8 Place” at about 3:10 on Part 2 (side 2) of the LP or about 16:32 on the CD.

I believe the term “Rhythm and Blues” means the ad was marketed toward African Americans and “T-40” likely means “Top 40.”
