Pick up your Cassette Recorder and Banners, it’s time for a Rebellion!
Well . . . okay, it may be not as adrenaline pumping, although tapes are coming back in fashion: Are cassettes becoming trendy again? Go to your box of memories for your Tape recorder because just as there was a resurrection in the desire for vinyl records, for some generations there is something somewhat remarkable about the good old fashioned low-tech cassette.
Tape recorders and cassette Walkmans may lack the sleek look and minimalism of iPod’s and MP3’s, but for some music connoisseurs that is what actually holds the draw . However, older generation readers who have lived long enough, can’t forget having more than a few of their best albums chewed up by their cassette walkman players, and may be wondering at the attraction. Maybe it is just another example of “living life on the edge”; I know at some point my extremely rare live bootleg tape can end up becoming runied forever by my old cassette player – what a buzz!
Okay, all fooling about aside, there obviously is a retro-movement out there for cassettes that is driven primarily by trendy “indie” bands and their fanatical fans.
And contrary to what general opinion may be, there are still a variety of models of personal cassette players and recorders, cassette boomboxes and auto cassette players from Sony, Panasonic, Kenwood, Pioneer and other top brands available for purchase.
