I should add that most of the cassettes I buy cost pennies (or no more than a couple of quid anyway).  But I quite often buy, say 25 tapes for a tenner, keep the two I want and flog the rest for £2 to £5 a pop.  I only need to sell a handful and I'm generally well into profit.  There's a surprising amount of people in this market place.

As I have been digitizing my old casstette tapes and have come across some Gregson and Collister tapes, brand new and unplayed. I picked these up in a sale for no money really, probably 50p each. †I have 2 x A Change in the Weather, 2 x Love is A Stange Hotel (wonderful album) and a copy of the Last Word (one of my favourites) †If you want one or two, message me and they will be yours. Obviously first ask, first gets.... †


Coincidentally Ronaldo have a cassette Change in the weather. †It was given to me a lot of years ago.Thankyou †for reminding me.🙂


Sorry don't know a Ronaldo. Auto complete godammit.

Interesting response.  I do find it odd though...nobody bats an eye at people spending £1k on a record.  Anyway, these tapes are far far rarer than the vinyl which is far far more expensive.  I call that a bargain.  But go figure!

I do.

But I'm not knocking you.  I'm merely flabbergasted.  I know you know what you're doing.
