#112175 I found some really old Japanese blank tapes on tapeline, and I haven’t made any mixtapes in a while so I’m doing david shire as we speak. Selected tracks from whatever I can dig out, mostly Pelham 123 and Conversation

Tape: Yokohama c-90 type 1. Deck: wm-d6c

#112187 Kidding aside, that's gonna be a killer mix, master max.

I have a very lot of Shire (vinyl, but lots of digital) so if there's anything you're jonesing for you could try me.

Dang! *fist punches air*

I could exchange with a (surprise) mix of my own, if you like?

#112218 @max I'll take the digital mix unless you are direct transferring vinyl to tape. I won't ask for a tape as I believe we are separated by a big pond and shipping is dumb. ;)

#112229 @scojo ok! But, as your collection of david shire is probably better than mine it’ll be a general tape from my soundtrack collection. Il swap you one! And I’ll post the tracklist for @inksb... also 90 mins is a long damn tape. Il do a 60 mins tape?

60mins sounds sweeet... This will be a challenge since, even though I have a Teac deck, it's as yet untested in the 'Rec' dept. Has been a while for me, the whole mixtape thang. Hope I haven't lost my MAD NINJA SKILLZ!!!

I already have a theme in mind tho...

#112235 @inksb if you send me a tape I’ll send you one. I think it’s like £10 postage but as long as we both send one over it’s fine...

I have a few ideas chewing around. My b side of david shire didn’t come out well at all, the tape is actually too old! My d6c wobbles a lot. Side a is fine. Keeping it to 60 minutes might be better technically!
