Point taken, but most of mine are stuff that's already available in digital format. About 10 years ago I threw out all my bootlegs off the radio but kept my original albums. In retrospect I wish I'd done the opposite. Just listening to the old Walkman now and Levelling the land (1992) is still sounding fine at the moment, lets see what another 25 years does to it. EDIT. But Introduce Yourself (1987 and looks like it's on very low grade ferric tape) is starting to sound a bit rough. I'm sure I've got some really old cassettes at my folks house so I'll try them at the weekend.
