Hell yeah! I grew up in the 70s so my music world was ruled by vinyl records and cassettes. Long live Classic Rock and Heavy Metal!

I remember hearing that in Japan they would still have cassette players in cars for years after they had died in the west.

^ Yes. Everything retro will. I'm just waiting for the reel-to-reel to return.
Funnily, someone today showed me an ad of 650 VHS movies for $550.)

I still have a lot of my old cassette tapes from my youth stored away. I don't listen to them very often but I've never had the heart to get rid of them. One of the first tapes I bought was Van Halen's debut album back in 1978 and I thought it was the coolest thing ever! My parents had bought me a Panasonic tape recorder and I finally had some jams to play on it. Of course it didn't sound very loud but it still kicked ass. Once I got a Walkman a few years later, I was really rockin'! My, how times have changed...

^ The very first album i bought was 'Thriller' on cassette. I was doing a clean out a few years ago, and decided to throw it out. I still regret it.




“On your marks, cassette, go!
2018 was the biggest year for cassette sales in over a decade, with music fans across all age ranges getting their hands on a cassette by their favourite chart act.
The BPI revealed sales of the format were up 125.3% year-on-year, reaching 50,000 sales in 2018 compared to just under 30,000 sold in 2017, according to Official Charts Company data.
While some cassettes are stocked in high street retailers, the majority are available through artists' official webstores and at live gigs, often in collectable limited edition runs.
Last year saw the highest number of cassettes purchased in the UK since 2004. So which artists are helping the phoenix format rise from the ashes?”

I'm a pack-rat by nature so you can imagine what my collection of vinyl and tapes looks like. I even have stuff my parents owned back in the 50s and 60s stored away. There's just something special about holding an old classic rock album in your hands and jamming the record on a turn-table that's forever timeless, especially when under the influence of your fave intoxicants!

I never got into buying artist cassettes but I always made my own mix tapes. I preferred buying vinyl back then and making my own tapes. I played them at our college parties and they were a huge hit. On vinyl you got all the liner notes, sometimes lyrics, sometimes a poster, etc, Then I did the same thing when I switched from vinyl to CDs in the late 80's and early 90's. Eventually cassettes went away and it's sad. Heck, new cars don't even come with CD players anymore. Everything is streaming now.

^ " vinyl you got all the liner notes, sometimes lyrics"

Towards their end, the cassette covers actually became booklets that had the liner notes and lyrics.

Did anyone ever buy a Cassingle?

I don't think they ever went anywhere.

Yes, I bought quite a few since I could not find them on a 45 vinyl and did not want to spring for the whole album I would buy the cassingle. Usually on new artists that I heard one song but was afraid to buy the entire CD or vinyl album. I had a dual tape deck so I record from one tape to the other and still make mix tapes.

^ Thanks. I thought they never really took off. I assume when vinyl was winding down singles were released on cassette but not vinyl.

Hmmm ... a question for music purists: was cassette a more authentic sound than CD?
