For Melodie, FYI, this means there are four tracks on the same
phyical side of the tape, and bu flipping the reels it records on a
different pair of tracks - it is NOT coated on both sides, we just
cal them side one and sode two like a record. It is a consumer, home
method of recording more sound on half the tape...

Hi, Lou and Melodie,

I think I pointed to a post where I described sides in greater detail, but to get the entire picture (or as much of it as I've had time to set down in bits), I think these two pages might help Melodie:
(talks about sides and edges and A and B wind)
(has a diagram--click to enlarge--of most of the 1/4-inch track formats and some notes
on their use)
