Here’s a cross-section of half track tapes that were made in the late 50s. Lots of very good jazz and classical, across many different tape producers/ labels. All of these can be found on site in the Harrison tape catalogs section, available in the R-R resources drop-down. They are also listed individually in the tapes drop-down menu, 2 track. The advanced search option on the left should prove useful!

All of these tapes are 7/1/2 ips stereo, stacked/inline, so compatible with all modern half track machines.
