    I just rediscovered my cassettes from twenty years ago. Been listening to the Pixies Doolittle. I forgot I had the album, as it was on a blank cassette. Great find for me :music:

    My tape was made from an LP back when it was a new album. I wouldn't mind having your version too.

    I've just stacked a pile of cassettes to archive to CD/MP3 for easier access. This batch is store-bought albums that I don't have on any other media. Interesting group, should be fun to crank up during the process:

    Coverdale/Page
    Jimmy Page-Outrider
    Bash & Pop-Friday Night is Killing Me
    Dread Zeppelin-5,000,000*
    Badlands-Voodoo Highway
    Badlands
    David Lee Roth-Your Filthy Little Mouth
    Kink's X-Out of the Silent Planet
    Lynch Mob-Wicked Sensation
    Ratt-Detonator
    Ratt-Dancing Undercover
    The Vapors-New Clear Day

    That should take me a little while, between splitting the tracks & then editing the MP3 tags.

    I scored a briefcase full of casettes they were going to toss out while doing a clean up at my workplace. At least they know where to bring them.

    Some were dubs, but there were a bunch of originals. I have my Onkyo TA-2050 pressed back into service for the winter. It's going to take me that long to wade through and listen to all of them.

    I'll post some titles when I get a chance.

    Picked up 5-for-a-dollar (+ 1) today at a thrift:

    Veruca Salt- Eight Arms to Hold You
    Whitesnake
    The Firm
    Tin Machine
    Annie Lennox- Diva
    Extreme- III Sides to Every Story

    ...just upgraded the tape deck in the van, too. If I could only figure out how to set the clock, I'd be really happy.

    In the garage: recently spun my home-made compilation of one of my very favorite artists, Fela Kuti, entitled "FELA 2000". Dead give-away to the vintage.

    I followed that with a cassette of a partial recording of a live Little Feat concert originally broadcast on "Austin City Limits".

    I don't miss much about cassettes, but I do miss being able to pop one in on a moment's notice and start recording off of FM. Perhaps there is a way to do this direct to CD but if so, I need a clue...

    Well, it's not DIRECT to CD, but you could put an Alesis MasterLink in your system. I record from video cameras, cassette, CD, LD, DVD, VHS, 8mm, DAT, PC, phono (w/preamp), live from a mixer...anything analog or digital. Easy enough to break into tracks, crop, and even fade in & out if you care to later.
