From: "George Brock-Nannestad" <[log in to unmask]>
> in a way I am sick and tired of seeing CompactCassettes being slammed all
I still own (or hope I do?) four original Philips CC's I bought at the BX
equal of the PX) in 1967...and recorded myself (rather sloppily...set the
portable machine in front of my record player's speakers!). When last played
they sounded as good as they usually did...! I also have a LOT of cassettes
bought and recorded in the 70's. Most of the problems I had with cassettes
have involved automobile players; they would quite often "eat" the tape; one
could VERY carefully retrieve the "eaten" tape from the offending player...!
I had (and hope I still do?) about 100-odd tapes of live performances of
my blues band. I used a Sony deck with mike inputs, and a couple of
inexpensive mikes duct-taped in place on either side of the small venue
in which we were playing. "Fidelity" was surprisingly good...!
