Hadn't seen anything interesting on cassette for ages but I spotted a copy of Alan Hull's Another Little Adventure, in my local Oxfam, this afternoon.

It's an excellent little live album, on Black Crow Records, that came out in 1988, Ridiculous value for 50p!

Absolute bargian and an album I'd love to hear. Alan Hull was a great writer and had the amazing voice that added so much personality to his songs

It's a strong album and stands up well against some of his other live releases.

Have asked for a cd/cassette player for Christmas, as all this talk of cassettes has made me want to listen to mine if they are still working. Smiley

No, just three Co-ops and Tesco Delivery to pick-up points. (And some firms will deliver to us if they aren’t averse to island postcodes  Huh )

But we are allowed off the island periodically, to visit electrical retailers in the nearest town, 120 miles away  Grin ...my cassettes WILL play again!

The 'Oo and Polydor have done a good job on this: https://store.thewho.com/*/*/WHO-Cassette/690C0000000

Looks very similar to a classic 70's Poly cassette.  Even got paper labels...

And, fwiw, I like the album.  It's got a mature feel, but not (in the main) in a naff way.  The quality control slips on a couple of tracks, but it's far far better than many other Who albums.
