The classic cassette format has never really disappeared, though many record labels chose to ditch the format due to lack of popularity after the turn of the century.

Recently, artists such as Lana Del Rey, alt-J, You Me At Six, Erasure and Father John Misty have issued their recent albums on cassette, with Arcade Fire and JAY-Z planning releases on the classic format also.

Though not as big as the scale as vinyl records have become once more, cassettes have shown a modest increase in popularity again.

So I ask, do you still use cassettes? Did you used to? Would you be interested in them again?

I don't now, I used to though.

Out of interest, how much does a cassette player go for nowadays? Specifically a Walkman?

I've got loads of albums on cassettes and a very small collection of single cassettes, but I'm too frightened to play them now, as the tape could break, they are very old, plus I don't have a cassette player no more, I just keep them for nostalgia purposes.

You can pick up a new cassette player for around £20. Sony Walkmans seem to vary from £30 all the way in to the hundreds!

Aldi stocked a Boombox last month for £25 I think it was and I wish I had got hold of one. I hope they have them on Special Buy again soon!
awardinary
Is there really any logic behind this revival though? I mean sure I get the nostalgia, but practically speaking, they can't really improve what a cassette is, and naturally in time it is going to wear and affect the sound quality. Not to mention the impracticality of having to fast forward and rewind to get to the song you want to listen to. huh.gif

This for sure will not be a media format I will be returning to anytime in the future.

So we've seen the revival of the vinyl, and the cassette, maybe the next one due is the albeit brief concept of the mini-disc. wink.gif

cassette was the worst format of all for buying music and playing music, but for recording music (off the radio) or radio shows it was fab. I still have hundreds of cassettes and reel-to-reel's waiting to be copied to mp3....and no time to do it.

I wouldnt go back to casettes..all that fast forwarding and rewinding to get to your favourite song. Or when the tape reel comes loose and gets tangled in the tape machine so annoying. Thy should be kept cofined to the history books IMO

I bought lots of cassettes in the 80s and then ended up buying most of them again on CD. I also recorded loads of songs off the radio onto blank cassettes by acts that weren't quite good enough for me to buy a whole album by them.
Medellíam
I don't think cassettes will ever see anything near the sort of revival vinyl had. As established already in here, they're really not practical, they're not exactly attractive to look at and don't have a particularly appealing sound. Perhaps there is some sort of nostalgic value or new generations discovering them and finding them 'cool' like how it's cool to own vinyl, but vinyl has the advantage of having a distinct, appealing sound when you play them and are easily the most attractive format. That's slightly subjective, of course, but the size of them means the artwork is given more room for appreciation and there's lots of cool ways of packaging them. It kind of makes purchasing music in a physical way really exciting because you're presented with more than just something to keep the music protected in.

With streaming in such force, it's no surprise that it encourages people to 'fight back' and defend the physical form of consuming music and vinyl presents the best of what stream can never do.

I have loads of cassettes and so does my dad. I think I might start going through them soon as some of them have ended up in the wrong boxes over the years. sleep.gif

I agree, this format should be confined to history for the reasons already highlighted.
Jay ☆
I haven't got any recently released albums on cassette, although I was strangely tempted to buy Blue Neighbourhood by Troye Sivan on this format! thinking.gif

Cassette was the first format I used, but it was only for a couple of years (1996/97), then I got a CD player and didn't look back. laugh.gif Fast-forwarding and rewinding was such a pain.

I've still got my cassette album / singles, for some reason I never wanted to let go of them (and I'm glad I didn't, purely for the sake of nostalgia).

The last time I saw a music cassette outside of charity shops was Christmas 2007, when WHSmith randomly had a few old copies of Now 58 on the format marked down to £3. I bought it for the novelty value and was odd hearing songs so recent on a tape!

I think cassette singles were quietly discontinued in about 2003, albums carrying on a bit longer.

I literally have next to nothing commercially released on cassette anymore. But for posterity, I shall list them here:

- Busted - You Said No (or Charlie's tape as it was known. Quite rare now due to the fact it contains a B-side not released on CD or download)
- All Saints - Under the Bridge / Lady Marmalade
- All Saints - Bootie Call
- All Saints - Pure Shores
- Appleton - Don't Worry
- Madonna - What It Feels Like for a Girl
- The Beautiful South - Blue is the Colour / Quench

I do however have a whole box of 'home recorded' cassette tapes dating back to as recently as 2007 when I abandoned the format. Largely consisting of interviews with bands I loved on different radio shows (and also a squeaky voiced 17 year old me talking to a local DJ from about 2006).

I think cassette singles were quietly discontinued in about 2003, albums carrying on a bit longer.

It seems to me that different labels phased out cassette albums & singles at different times (in the UK)!

A couple of examples: Virgin released Melanie C's single Here It Comes Again (February 2003) & the Reason album (March 2003) on cassette, but opted against a cassette for the singles On the Horizon (June 2003) and Melt/Yeh Yeh Yeh (November 2003). Whereas Girls Aloud's Polydor label issued cassettes for Sound of the Underground (single), No Good Advice, Life Got Cold and Jump (December 2002 through to November 2003), but didn't release their Sound of the Underground album on cassette (SOTU was released on CD only in May 2003). I'm pretty certain that Jump is the most recently released cassette single I own!

I agree that late 2003 seemed to be the final moment for cassette singles. Their phasing out seemed to directly coincide with the widespread introduction of "2-Track & Maxi" CD formats in January 2004? (I say "widespread" because Virgin/EMI seemed responsible for starting this, as early as summer 2003! Other labels such as Universal didn't get on board with this until 2004).

In regards to cassette albums, they certainly seemed to become far less widely available or issued in 2003, and possibly not around at all in 2004 (apart from compilations)?

I find it intriguing that modern albums are being released on cassette! I wouldn't have guessed they'd hold much retro appeal, but seemingly there is a niche market for them.

Ah yes I forgot GA had their first four singles on cassette. Thank God their label saw sense to have 'Lights Music Camera Action' on the European CD single of 'Life Got Cold'.

Just interestingly as well. I was having a look on Busted's Discogs page a few weeks ago now. Whilst history records they were the last band to release a UK number one hit on cassette, it wasn't with 'Crashed the Wedding'. It was with 'Who's David' - only 100 copies were made available for pre-order so it's like the holy grail of rare releases by them! https://www.discogs.com/Busted-Whos-David/release/7871723

I still have hundreds of cassettes which I play in my car regularly, although I find as time goes by they start to break with increasing regularity (latest casualty was yesterday - Aerosmith's "Nine Lives" from 1997 - I was just thinking how it was 20 years old, when SNAAAPPPP) ohmy.gif

Didn't Feeder have the number 1 vinyl with "Borders"?. My other half is a huge fan and has everything they have released, bar a few white label pressings that are far too expensive for him!.

He's dragging me over to Chepstow for their homecoming gig this weekend, any excuse for a holiday!. It will be my first time seeing them and his 50th.

Nice band who also are doing their bit to try and create a niche collectors market for cassettes, like the one we have right now for vinyl.

Have you seen this boombox? Looks very retro.

Not sure about the vinyl #1, but they definitely got the year end and weekly cassette #1! I didn't make it to Chepstow, though I hear the set list was virtually the same as the ABE tour sets. I'm gonna order tickets for The Best Of tour tomorrow though, hope to hear some different tracks thrown in!

I still have 30 cassettes for albums, which don't have on CD.
The most interesting are Shampoo - We Are Shampoo and Clea - Identity Crisis.

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 ?

According to Wiki... "Bow Wow Wow's "C·30 C·60 C·90 Go" was the first cassette single, released in the U.K. in 1980"

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.
