this cassette was probably one of the first ones ever made. back when people were scoffing at the idea of something replacing the 8-track. It’s actually my dad’s, but I acquired it ages ago. besides, he had every Stones LP the day they hit the shelves. My family owned the only record store in my hometown in the early 60s so Dad had all the best stuff. (He tells stories of my Grandmother seriously considering having him committed for listening to Dylan’s first album. She used to corroborate the story)
Let It Bleed is one of the greatest albums of all time. The cover art has fascinated me all my life. That and and Exile on Mainstreet kept me enraptured for hours at a time.

    Oh I probably would have died if my old man had owned a record store. And the Robert Frank’s on ‘Exile…’ are marvellous. Looking forward to picking up the 180g repressing that just came out. Along with a newly legalised Cocksucker Blues….

  • sadly the store was gone before I came along. I did reap the benefits of his awesome record collection, though.

    Intriguing selective focus—had to look more closely, and good story. Do you/your dad still have a cassette player? Assume you can still play LPs.

    I’m still reeling at the idea of a cassette as a classic.

  • me too.
    I fit in a weird generation. I grew up in the 70s with LPs but really only ‘got into’ music in the cassette era. I still prefer tapes to CDs and everything to digital. (I wrote a little tirade on my bloggue recently about my feelings towards MP3s.) I’d rather hear a warp on a tape or a scratch on a record to that horrid technological fart that happens on corrupt digital files.
    Haven’t had a record player in years. Might get one again. Would be nice.
    thanks for the comments!

    The focus on this is really cool. I loved the story too – reminds me of my dad. He’s a total luddite (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), and loved his 8-tracks. We even had portable 8-track players in the car. He refused to buy us a VHS video player, so instead we had 2 beta players and a box of mouldy tapes from Papua New Guinea, because they stopped renting them out at the local video store long before! I love his vinyl collection though, and I’m grateful for his influence on my musical tastes……anyway, I have a tendency to ramble and talk crap, especially when it comes to music. Forgive me :)

  • forgiven. i have the same tenancies.
    thanks melissa.
