#1 Sean Dowdell and His Friends? HQ Cassette Rip
Just some quick history about how these rips came to be. I started collecting in February of 2003 in my final year of high school. I found this tape on an online auction in 2012, so it took me about 9 years to find. There is only one other tape known to exist and remain intact besides mine, and for that reason the “holy grail” to collectors.
Based on age alone (21 years old), the chances of finding another one are slim to none. Certainly, there are items in my collection that are more “one of a kind” in the literal sense. What I mean by that is I have the only one, and I’ve never seen another one, like the Humble Brothers Remixes CDR for example. Nevertheless, this tape is up there in terms of being super rare/scarce/uncommon/limited, whatever word you like to use.
Last October a guy named “Spazzy Nazzy “ in the LP community asked me to rip the tape for him, and he paid me a fair amount to do so. He was more then generous I will say in terms of dollars. All credit goes to him for getting these 3 tracks in the best quality possible!! It was ripped at a professional studio and the 3 tracks are around 40 MB each!
Lastly, my good friend Will, who actually owns the other tape I mentioned is selling it here.
