It's the only Fairport album I have on cassette. It's obviously not very rare round these parts.

Which is more, I think, than I paid for it. I didn't really buy cassettes unless they were cheap so I will have picked this up from a bargain bin somewhere.

I have that exact History cassette. That is a late 80s/early 90s copy. One of my first Fairport purchases after seeing the band for the first time in, I think, 1989.

I think this illustrates well the confusion.  Given an original slab of vinyl and an early 90's reissue, one would know clearly which was the more valuable.  It seems with tapes there is such ignorance (lack of experience?) of them that sellers don't even know what they're looking at (ie claiming mid 90's reissues as 40-50 year old originals).

Anyway... more importantly, here's some tape porn for you all: http://vintagecassettes.com/index.htm

I still run a good cassette player in my system, and have a good number of hours of stuff on tape - 2-300 units.   Lots of it is radio broadcasts- - I've always rather have had the record or CD.  I have a few pre recorded tapes  left, but in my experience they have a shorter lifespan than blanks, assuming you buy good quality blanks.

I may have missed a post or 2, but I think part of the attraction of old, used cassettes, or vintage still sealed cassettes, is that they're analogue, like old records.
