sounds like Side 2 should come first.

Tut reel #19 is a quarter track reel but only two of the four tracks were used. There is nothing labeled on this tape.

Transfer info: The reel was played on a Revox A77 (7.5 inches per second, 7.5 ips NAB de-emphasis curve) that was modified such that the entire playback signal path was replaced with a 2003 era custom tape head preamp having all metal film resistors, polypropelene coupling capacitors, and low ESR electrolytic supply bypass capacitors. The playback signal was digitized with a Mytek Digital 8X96 ADC into a 24 bit, 48kHz (mono) sound file. This sound file was rendered down to a 16 bit sound file with Waves L2 ultramaximizer (Type 1 Ultra noise shaping).
