    I still have what must be a couple of hundred tapes somewhere and they're not going anywhere.

    I still have :eek: :oops: :D :p :cool: maybe 60 or 70 (?) cassettes that cover my obsessions** from roughly 1976 or so to around 1993 or so ... Haven't touched them for many many years out of pure, unadulerated 'whats the fucking point of those now?'-ness .... :hmm:

    **(that is, my obsessions between my vinyl era, which was followed much later by my zillions of CDs era. But there were obviously many confused overlaps between formats, and various gaps too, which led to me missing stuff... :confused:. Was too busy geting twatted on all sorts. Always twatted along with various music though :) :cool:

    I forgot about this thread! All my old mix tapes have gone to a mate who is going to digitise them for me. A load of the 'real' tapes were fucked but there is a small selection of heavy metal tapes (iron maiden, kiss, la guns etc) that can go to a good home if anyone actually wants them?

    Kept mine...this is about a third of them. I don't really miss my vinyl and I thought I would do. But these tapes bring back so many memories. I would no more get rid of them than I would photographs. Sorry if the pics are huge.

    clicker I see a Big Audio Dynamite tape in there, superb.
    I have Rivertop Phoenix on tape and whenever I get a workable cassette player it's the first thing I play.

    I was playing some old cassettes from my youth the other day and they all started to snap. Just worn out.

    So far it's only the comps I made for myself or other freinds made for me, but it's still quite sad. Time passing. I think I can fix them.

    Can be a good idea to forward and rewind the whole tape as they can become sticky when unused for long periods. I read this in sound on sound years ago but don’t have first hand experience.
