I was successful a few times with scotch tape.  I didn't let the splice run over the heads at all. Lost a minute or so but not the whole thing.

If you can be *totally* sure that it won't contact the head, I don't see why this would be a problem for a one-time transfer. But don't put it back into the collection without a VERY OBVIOUS mark on it!
