Blank Cassette Tapes


A friend of mine recently put me up on some really dope artwork that featured on blank audio cassettes made in the 70's and early 80's, so as well as searching for vinyl on my travels, I have now taken to keeping an eye out for tapes as well. The beauty is, hardly anybody wants them, so when they do turn up people are normally happy to give them away. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not into this from some nerdy collectors point of view (and there are serious tape collectors out there), this is strictly about the graphics. Here's a few examples I picked up this morning. Bought all 6 tapes along with '3 Feet High & Rising' (on CD for the car), and a sh*tty Easy Listening LP for £1.00. Can't complain about that...















































I'm gonna update this post from time to time whenever I pick up more goodies, so keep checking back...

Oh my, this is nostalgia. Had a bunch of those Philips with the dots on. Probably filled with Slade, Bay City Rollers, Suzy Qatro and things like that :)
Thanks for the flash back.
