I did once attempt to read the tape on our department's Kenedy drive
(now disposed of) and managed to get all but a few blocks near the
beginning.  It seems to be a pretty standard distribution tape, with a
layout as described in the Unix Programmer's Manual Vol.2 (Jan.1979).

I have a 1600bpi copy (modulo the bad blocks) somewhere (I wonder where
I put it?).  I wouldn't bother about making another copy; if anyone
deparately wants to try, I guess I might loan the original.  But AFAIK
there's only a couple of Makefiles that differ, and I have those on the

easy to copy.
