“On way home bought Audio-Magnetic C-90 cassette – 54p. Borrowed machinehead – deep purple, in evng taped it”
I scribbled about Deep Purple’s “Machine Head” a few weeks ago.
It would appear that before I committed it to regular listening I had to save up 54p for an “Audio-Magnetic” cassette. I think its fair to say that my 54p was probably NOT buying me the best quality tape known to man; “audio magnetic” sounding suspiciously like one of those ‘knock off’ brands one might have found at the local petrol station?!
Meanwhile, my activities may have aroused suspicion up in parliament if the accompanying logo is anything to go by? *grin*
(Actually the logo – and phrase “Home Taping is Killing Music” – did not appear until the 1980’s… somewhat ironically a period when the music industry sold MORE product than it ever had before!)
