    I asked this on a different forum – for the life of me I cannot find it to upload pictures. Here’s another go at it. I have a friend who ran a small record label back in the late 80’s and we helping him clean out his storage recently. Had a box of demos that had a smashing pumpkins demo tape – the \"gish basement tape\", from what I found. Does anyone have any recent sales of this to put a number on what it’s possibly worth?

    Thanks for any info!

    Cheers

    it’s worth whatever someone is willing to pay (annoying answer)

    i’d estimate that tape to fetch over $250 (better answer)

    throw it up on eBay and see what happens! (best answer)

    hope this helps! :)

    hi there. the forum you originally posted this on was on smashingpumpkins.com. i remember your thread there. this forum has disappeared now, and been replaced by http://www.smashingpumpkinsnexus.com. (i’m not sure if that messageboard is coming back or not.) so that explains why you can’t find it anymore.

    good luck with this tape. the insert looks a bit dirty, but this is rare and old, so i agree with the other estimate: it’ll make a good sum of money. it’s hard to say how much exactly. could be $100, could be a lot more.

    there are about 400 copies, according to http://www.spfc.org/songs-releases/disc … cog_id=119.
