Recent purchases (from Oxfam shops):

Tom Waits - Mule Variations (European pressing)
The Smiths - Meat Is Murder (Rough Trade issue)
The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead (1993 reissue)
The Smiths - The World Won't Listen (1993 reissue)

UPDATE: I doubled checked the Tom Waits cassette on the Discogs database. It wasn't a Polish pressing after all.

Used to have about 100-125 cassettes at one point, but now have maybe 20, between both meself and mum...had a wide range, too, including ABBA, Big Country, Cheap Trick, Gordon Lightfoot, Jethro Tull, U2 and ZZ Top...now am down to about 6-7 Enya cassettes and a couple others. I'd have to go look to see what mum has. I also had a bunch of classical music and madrigal singers cassettes as well....

EDIT: I used to have a couple of different cassette players, but over the years sold them off in garage sales/jumbles....ja friend of mine has a contraption at home that he uses to swap vinyl and cassettes to cd and has a lot of those vinyl/cassettes on mp3/mp4 players as well as the cd format...

Guardians Of The Galaxy - Awesome Mix Volume 2 is the best selling cassette of the year.


I had a few chances to get LCD Soundsystem's American Dream on cassette. I kept saving it for later but by the time I was making the ultimate decision of getting it, my record store already sold out sad.gif. I used the 10 I was going to spent on the cassette on a Breeders 7" and a Sugar cassette instead.

I used to have lots, but gave most to charity shops as I replaced them in CD.
I've kept some, and quite a few cassette singles that I'd find it harder to part with. I know I should part with them, as they're boxed away...but I've got rid of some before and then regretted it.
I had thought that cassette singles were a brand new thing in the 1990s - I'd never seen nor heard of them before, and then in the mid 90s, I bought some cassette singles from a car boot sale, that were from 1987. Just how far back to they go, I wonder ?


They started to get more common around 1986/87. I remember buying things like Frankie's Warriors of The Wasteland, Westworld's Where The Action Is and a couple of Mantronix singles. At that time the track listings tended to mirror the 12" release. By 1989 it was becoming fairly common to find cassette versions of most releases.

Bought a special edition cassette of ABBA's Gold Greatest Hits (1999 reissue with the members' signatures embossed in gold to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ABBA winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 for Sweden with "Waterloo") from an Oxfam shop for 99p along with a cassete of The Cranberries' No Need To Argue.

I bought a fair number of cassettes back in the 80s and early 90s. However, the absolute best things about tapes were that they were so much cheaper for bands to self-produce for sale at gigs and therefore I have a significant collection of releases by obscure/upcoming bands with tracks unavailable elsewhere or eventually released in radically different versions.
The 2nd things that was brilliant was going to see a band live and taking your trusty tape recorder with you to record that live show. OK so the quality wasn't perfect but 30 years later and computer software has caught up enough that with the right skills they can at best sound almost like a professional release, and at worst are a historical document of an otherwise forgotten event
