I wanted to start testing some cassettes beside my reviews of walkmans and decks. There’s been some activity in the magnetic tape world and it seems we will see some good news very soon, coming from NAC and RTM. So, why not testing what the NAC is actually selling? I’ve contacted them and they sent […]
Yes, this friday 27th I’ll be CJ’ing again at Cara B pub in Barcelona with cassettes and walkmans. Yes, you read well: with cassettes and walkmans! If you like analog music as well as 70s and 80s pop, rock and pop/rock music, then you just got a plan for this friday! See you there!
This saturday I’ve been at Cassette Culture, the very first market for small releases in cassette. See my first post about that. I’ve been CJ’ing for an hour and a half and it was a lot of fun, though it was more like ambient music rather than loud music for dancing. These small labels were selling mostly […]
Here are my best acquisitions that recently came home. These are some but not all, just the most remarkable: First of all, very old tapes: these Realistic are, as far as I know, the brand of Radio Shack, a well known stores in USA: This is probably the oldest tape in my entire collection. According […]
You maybe don’t know about Recording the Masters, a company in France that is making new magnetic tape. I recently published a quick note about De Bandjesfabriek that is preparing to sell this new tape in the Nederlands. Well, recently there was the Munich High end Show where they were showing his new tape (just […]
Well, I bet so! While browsing information about the Munich Hi-End show I found two companies that are releasing new albums in tape: Entertape and Hemiolia. The former is only releasing them in reel tapes but the latter is doing it with cassettes. And here comes the interesting thing… I’ve seen that they released an album called A PORTRAIT OF […]
I’ve recently found an interesting store at eBay from a chap that has hundreds of -mainly- sealed tapes for sale: dr Bo. I was interested in many of them to complete my collection. Some are pretty rare and difficult to find, so I went and buy some. The prices aren’t cheap, even for less rare tapes […]
I’ve recently published an article at the main website analyzing the audio quality of the AC/DC release of the Black album in the Cassette Store Day. How does it sound? Will it improve the old, original, release? Let’s find out!
Yes friends, I’ll be CJ’ing in the next months again here at Barcelona. If you are going to stay somewhere near, plese put a mark in your calendar June 23th. I’ll be CJ’ing with cassettes and walkmans at El col·leccionista, Barcelona. View in Maps. CANCELLED! June 30th, at sala Apolo, Barcelona, into the Cassette Culture Market. […]
Once more, Barcelona is doing something different and innovative, and this time it will be a prerecorded cassette market. It will be in the famous Sala Apolo, just one evening. There will be many small cassette labels that will sell and share their new releases. There also will be new and small artists that are […]
