One thing that tapes were great for, though, is recording from FM radio (which used to be good).

This is definitely true. I had dozens of great compilation tapes back in the day from recording songs off the radio.

Great write up at the link above.

The new album debuted at number one in 21 different countries! In the US alone, the album sold nearly 120,000 copies, and the majority of those were CDs! Thatís awesome and very encouraging.

Maybe I'm a geezer, but can any of you making the claim please explain to me how/why cassettes are difficult to copy?  Huh


Well, with cassettes you basically have to monitor the recording. You have to stop side A in the right place or you get an abrupt ending in the middle of a song. And of course it's all 1x speed so you can't exactly churn out a bunch of copies in a short period of time. You also have to make sure you've got the correct length tape on hand to match your albums. Record a 65 minute album on a 90 minute tape and you've got a bunch of dead air to fast forward thru. Copying CDs just feels like a 'cleaner' and more precise experience to me.

It's not difficult exactly, just tedious. Hence my pain in the ass comment. Smiley

It would probably have to be a joint collaboration with the bands. I really do wonder if we'll ever see that stuff in this lifetime, or only after the band have all died off and it's then the record company's decision. It's a shame that so many bands sit on live recordings they have. I'd love to hear what's in AC/DC's vault as well, but the prospects look similarly dim. Most of all, I feel bad for any fans who don't live long enough to see those performances released.

Oh, you can "copy" them rather easily, but the question is, what do they actually sound like?  The sound quality is extremely variable.  I had a double tape deck as well, and I never got one to copy without audio shifts and hissing noises.

I hope we get more streaming from GNR, it's nice to see them perform.  It's nice how they mix up the songs from different albums. beer

Depends on their reason for posting.


I'll admit it. I'll never understand people who complain about not having anything, then complain when they got something that it's not what they wanted.

Be honest. Don't go on and on about how you (not you personally) want something, because in reality you want something very specific that might not even exist in the form you want it.

Don't say "I want live clips on YouTube for me to watch for free." when you only want clips from the summer of 2016 for example. And if it's possible to be even more specific, even better.


At the end of the day, someone who wants something very specific isn't gonna be happy if they get something else. It's been obvious for years now.

For example, "We want a reunion".... Nope, you weren't happy with Duff and Slash back in the band. You wanted the AFD line up....

 hihi


Nothing too serious here. Just poking fun at things that make no sense to me. I mean, complaining about complaining probably makes no sense to others... Cheesy

I still have my Sony boombox CFD 110L, probably not working anymore, but yeah, it was easy to copy cassettes.

a few years earlier we used them to copy computer games as Amstrad ones for example, too.

I was thinking the same thing. If you had a double tape deck, which many boom boxes (I canít believe we called them that- haha) did, then it was simple.

Me too, double tape deck.  Works every time.

100% correct. But if u go and read the comments almost everywhere, nobody complained about Houston, for example. Again itís like they donít get what people like the most. Just this. It shouldnít be this difficult to distinguish between a good performance and a bad one. They have thousands shows, canít they pick better Huh Cause i really could pick better..


That's part of my point.

If the choice is to post nothing or Wichita. Which do you pick?

If your choice is to post something now, instead of waiting longer for the possibility of something else, which do you pick?
