Hey guys

So, I have found a newfound passion in finding and collecting audio cassette tapes ... just bought pink floyd (the wall), anthrax (attack of the killer b's) and The Offspring (Smash).

Partly it is just for fun, a good and healthy hobby ... but I also have an old car! And I enjoy the nostaglia of tapes ... ;-)

Anyone else so inclined?

Man, i grew up with an operation ivy, Energy, tape. I have no clue what happened to it Razz

I was young in the 90s when tapes were still around, but lucky enough to have older brothers who would listen to music on them. So i remember using them. It was always a hassle though finding every song.

Hows the sound quality? i havent listen to tapes in forever....

My brother started collecting them too! I don't have the patience to start another kind of collection. CD and vinyl is enough for me!

don't throw them away! keep them. for me they are as much about the music as they are about the memories.

I'm not sure exactly what he all has. I know he has some Ryan Adams stuff, but I haven't seen his whole collection. You know what, I actually have a few cassettes, myself. I forgot I had them! I got two of them for free at a rummage sale a few years ago, Cheap Trick- Lap Of Luxury, and The Beatles- Part 1. And then my grandma gave me this tape of Finnish songs that I haven't listened to yet, Vanhaa Kultaa- Old Gold from Finland.

Sounds like a cool collection!

As long as music brings memories, it also brings happy and thoughtful melodies ;-)

I actually got excited when I saw the "cassette tapes" title, haha. I grew up in the 80s, so I had tons of cassettes. Mostly embarrassing stuff I loved as a little kid, like Paula Abdul and New Kids on the Block, but I have some of my mom's cool tapes like Springsteen, the Eagles, The Rolling Stones, classic stuff like that. They have a neat nostalgic value and they sound pretty good too!

I have a quite a collection too. Probably around ~125 cassettes but all stored in boxes.

Mostly Punk and heavy metal from the 80's and early 90's (i remember i switched to CD's in 92) and pretty much all of Led Zeppelin and the Doors and a little bit of Rap.

If i could find a decent tape player, i would probably get them out of the boxes find them a sweet spot right by my records Razz

Also, i have a LOT of mixtapes. When i started to drive, in 94-95, CD players for cars were quite expensive, so we sticked to tape players so we just did mixes from our CD's.

It was an hassle to find a song but you know what? We didn't care about that cause it was not important, we just let the tape play from start to finish...just like a vinyl.

Our relationship with music was quite different back then...

i used to make mix-tapes too, i had all the misfits (danzig era) on tape and i could fit every song onto a 90 minute tape ;-) my friends and i always made mix-tapes for each other, and we would listen to it from front to back as well.

today i grabbed the doors soundtrack, shout at the devil, skid row, soundgarden (superunknown), megadeth (countdown) and another one that i now forget! ;-)

Wake me up before you go go, I don't want to miss it when you hit that high.

Those are kind of weird words for a four year old to sing, huh? I even danced to this song at my preschool dance recital! Razz Oh the 80s....such a wonderfully weird decade!

found the ultimate cassette shop here yesterday, bought 24 tapes, including some pistols, the cult, guns n roses, ministry, body count, rhcp ... ;-) and a portable cassette carrying case!

then, for a meager 25 bucks, bought an old school stereo with 2 cassette players, and a remote control for the cd player.

Nice! I'm feeling all nostalgic now. I might have to dig out my old cassettes and see if I have anything really cool that I forgot about. Very Happy

doing some tape dubbing now - my favorite album of all time is PLATINUM BLONDE'S 'Standing In The Dark' - got it now on vinyl, cassette, and MP3 - but the cassette was a huge find for me! I am dubbing it to keep the original nice and safe! ;-)

tell me what you got?

true enough steph ... we didn't know the meanings of half the songs we sang, like most of Prince's 'purple rain' and the sweater that Wham! made popular stating: 'Choose Life.' ;-)
