RE: Stereotape/Audio Arts question

I'm sure you realize how early a stereo tape (or stereo anything) 1956 is.
As far as tapes go, there were some companies that were still releasing staggered head recordings at that time. Emory Cook was experimenting with tonearms with 2 mono cartridges.
So, I'm sure what's written on the box is correct.
I think that RCA started releasing stereo tapes in 1957-58. I have one from '58.
It is channel 1 left (Bob and Ray throw a Stereo Spectacular) and like many early releases, it was meant to show off the "multi channel" aspects of the recording with plenty of walking from side to side.
Very cool tape you have there!
