Ode to Cassettes - Part One
Four tapes here:
"Say Anything" soundtrack : It's not the best Cameron Crowe soundtrack, but "Within Your Reach" by The Replacements and "Keeping The Dream Alive" by Freiheit are worth the 3.99 I paid for this one in 1994 at the second hand store in Bowling Green, KY.
"Best of the Blues Brothers" : This one is about worn out. Most of the cuts are live. It's amazing how talented Belushi and Aykroyd were on this. Paul Shaffer was one of the producers.
"Chicago X" : "You Are On My Mind" is a classic. One of my favorite tracks from Chicago.
"Nothing in Common" soundtrack : A very good and very under-appreciated movie also had a very good and under-appreciated soundtrack. Richard Marx's participation on this soundtrack cost him a nomination for the "Best New Artist" Grammy in 1987.
More cassette tape memories tomorrow....
