Is that the cassette version of a white label?


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.


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.


I'd humbly suggest you shouldn't have  Wink Grin  https://www.discogs.com/Nick-Drake-Five-Leaves-Left/release/10513630


Thanks for the link. I've let a few later to be valuable albums go at various times David. Im philosophical now. I think people mean stoical when they say that.

And I still have my Island Nick  Drake vinyl boxed set,  which must be worth a penny or 2    Smiley

I'm sure I can beat you on that score: Throbbing Gristle box sets of cassettes which sell for around $5k these days, sold for £100, and don't even get me started on the Spriguns albums....  Aaaaargh!

Leafing through the new issue of Mojo yesterday I noticed that amongst the formats being made available for a new reissue of Nancy Sinatra's Boots album is 8 Track Cartridge!  Shocked

We have truly crossed the rubicon.

Nah. That was crossed when Jon Boden released a wax cylinder version of Last Mile Home.
