Here is a list of the tapes that I have lying around from the halcyon days of the tape culture, which to my young ears was approximately '91 through '97 or so. Feel free to disagree! I'd be glad to trade tape copies of any of these for copies of other interesting stuff (on tape or CD-R)--just let me know at There are many other labels keeping the tape-label fire alive--check out my links page for great labels that will sell you first-generation copies of these things.
