If there anyone out there who call recall if there was a fuss made over the changing of the order of tracks on Beatles cassettes?In 1987 there was much debate over whether the first four LPs should have been re-issued in mono (which they were) or stereo, but changing the track order is scandalous!It seems incredible to me that EMI should have thought it appropriate (whatever they might have said about running order times) to re-arrange, say, 'Revolver', and I can't believe there wouldn't have been complaints.
God I used to do that. Plonk the cassette player next to the stereo or radio and press record. You couldn't even call it Lo Fi. More like No Fi. It was such a revelation when I got a cassette player that was integrated into the stereo and would record properly.
I remember one of the most exciting purchases I ever made was a portable stereo radio cassette (with double cassettes)suddenly being able to record anything off the radio and being able to copy cassettes from mates, the library etcIts a wonder I didnt wear the thing out , in fact I think I did
The pinnacle of my cassette use was one of those Teac four track recorders. With bouncing down you could maybe squeeze it into a six or seven track before quality loss overwhelmed. You then mixed down to another cassette player.
I guess time is relative. What you considered a "long time" when you made that cassette was really just one year. The album was released in 1970. Jesus Christ Superstar opened on Broadway in 1971. I'm pretty sure of these dates, Kelley, but you can always verify that with Jesus on Facebook.
Ha ha! I'll bet we were both doing that around the same time. But you asked for a hand-up for 8-tracks. That's what my first stereo had and I made all kinds of tapes to listen to in my parents' car and then mine. No one could have mistaken them for professional but they beat the radio stations I had to choose from! Come to think of it, I've never really lived anywhere with a decent radio station. Hmm..
I was always fascinated how the tape would click over to the next side midway through a song.
No, I don't miss them. I had fun making some mixed tapes, but then the memories of taping and rebuilding my copy of Sgt. Peppers enters the mind. Nice to be able to just skip to the song you want now. Give me CD's all of the time.
