HISTORICAL CASSETTES

Hahaha

Just digging thru a pile of old cassettes and see what I found -

The Oddfellows - Seven Year Itch
AWOL - Midnight in June
The Pagans - Hideaway
Livonia - Self
Eza - Ain't Ready for Monday
The Pilgrims - Away from the Numbers
S.U.D.S. - Invasion of the Killer S.U.D.S.
Various - M.I.S. Vol 2
Various - Gang Bang

Sad thing is almost none of these bands are still around...must be something we can do to preserve these historical recordings... any thoughts?

Hi Kev, I have a couple of such casette tapes too.

AWOL - Midnight in June
Daze - Sexy Little Boy
Do Not Ask - Just Play It
Watchmen - Democracy
Various Artists - Skin Deep

Tried sending them to be converted to CD last year, but the resulting quality was poor as some of the tapes are mouldy. So sad, these are really pieces of history.

Currently the NLB is seeking these old tapes and music in order to digitise them. Sadly I dont even have a copy of my own music!! Would you be kind enough to send them along to NLB to be digitised. The address/contacts are below. We would be grateful if you could assist,

My works were:-
Aint ready for Monday, Tim Records, 1992
(any others you can loan out to NLB would help preserve historical tapes!)

see below

Dear Isa,

Sorry for the delay in replying to you.

Currently, NLB does not have any holdings for your works in CD or other audio format. I’ve checked MusicSG website, which has Candy Whiskey listed but no recordings available. If you are able to direct us to anyone holding a copy of your recording, who is willing to loan it to us for digitisation, we will be happy to follow up. We will also work on clearing the necessary rights for digitisation and putting it on the site.

Thanks,
Si Wei
