I've heard cassettes are the best medium to listen to music on. I bought a cassette tape in the anticipation of buying a cassette deck to play it on. Little did I know that no one (apart from TEAC) make cassette decks anymore and I don't want to buy a used deck. I'm stuck.
cassettes were the life blood of my life with the smiths. Reading about gigs in the nme and then finding bootleg reocrdings on market stalls was magical. Quality often problematic, excitement rated 10/10. Took you to a place and a time pre internet. Great stuff.
