unreadable HP cartridges

If you recall there was a discussion about tape catridges that could
not be read because their coating was falling off.

I was thinking, what if we reverse the tape, so that the magnetic
head come in contact with the plastic backing and not the oxide.
Would it be possible to read the data then?

Obviously I am talking about a one-off operation, just to get the
stuff off the tape.
