I was delighted to find a copy of Herb Pederson's Lonesome Feeling album on cassette in a local charity shop, earlier on today. It set me back a mere 50p.

I've long enjoyed his two Seventies albums so it's fantastic to have something "new". Not too many Herb originals but the covers, including Gordon Lightfoot's It's Worth Believin', are well done and it's a lovely, laid back listen with impeccable harmony vocals, as you might expect,

Not cassettes, but I didn't know where else to post it. People with insane record collections:

Nope...it's a second 'pressing' (wrong word, release?) cassette (I've never seen a first)...there's quite a few Island pinks that use the same format.

It made me think of those bootleg tapes you used to find in markets - not quite getting all the details right. My favourite was a cassette a friend found called "Tubural Bells"...

it would be Pinc though. Or even Pync...  There is no letter "k" in written Welsh.

I think they're due to play locally to me, although the dates keep being put back and I can't keep up with it  Undecided

Re casettes, my husband is going to comandeer his Mum's old player. We were quite excited until we realised we threw out nearly all our old casettes about 15 years ago...  Cry  'spose I'll have to get on Ebay....

I once had a cassette of Five Leaves Left that looked like this. I think it was the first Nick Drake thing I bought. Eventually gave it away when I got a vinyl boxed set.

Would the same advice apply to the gatefold vinyl version I sold for £12 when I was a student?  Pink Moon too.
