    Hi,

    just went trawling through my collection to confirm the Today Cassette I owned was the Australian slipcase release with the clear tape with blue printing; but no it is a New Zealand release not yet on this site! It comes in plastic case with j card. Same cover art and barcode as UK Release. The tape is has the swirly logo that is unique to NZ cassette releases. I am a little pushed for time over the next few days but will have images up soon.

    These NZ cassettes are hard to find, even if you live here like I do.

    :D

    No, this cassette has same artwork as other today releases. I actually own the one you posted. Only one I have ever seen. I am waiting for someone else to find one :D I will submit pics and details to site soon.

    wow, both almost impossible to find – you’ve done well to find them! 8)

    let’s not forget that one of the tapes was just sitting in the collection. surely it isn’t that hard to find a tape that’s already in your collection (no matter where you live – new zealand or not)?

    I had never paid much attention to it as I assumed it was the Australian Version and I had it listed at that. Now I am on the hunt for an Australian one – lol

    I submitted the pics to the website today.

    everyone who has any Today cassettes should check them perhaps?

    They are difficult to find even in NZ, I remember a friend had the Siamese Dream cassette in 1993 but has since thrown it away or lost it – which is what most people have likely done with these other cassettes too -so the very few ones that are left are difficult to find :? :roll:

    is the Pisces Iscariot vinyl on the site? :P

  • #47270

    If anyone has a 33 UK cassette handy to scan and submit that would be good, not on site yet.

  • #47271

    i don’t have 33. i’m not too big on cassettes. i got the albums, a couple of diddle-doos here and there, and then it stops.

    but i should check them. it’s not unlikely that i have a copy of pisces or something that isn’t on the site yet.
    everyone, check yer cassettes!

    Oh Cool as Ice Cream, there’s a NZ release of the 33 cassette – so you better check yours!

    I think the point is that they are items that are hard to find ONLINE and in 2nd hand music stores etc…rather than in our collections. Duh. :lol:

    Just from a look at MCIS era cassettes in the SPfreaks collection:

    1979 – UK, US, NZ
    Tonight, Tonight – UK, US, Australia, NZ
    33 – US, NZ (but UK only had a promo?)
    BWBW – UK, US, Australia (there must have been a NZ release too – the song was very big here)
    Zero – US only

    Siamese Dream:

    Today – UK, NZ, Australia ….wait, no US cassette?
    Disarm – UK only

    There could be some gaps to fill in with these cassette releases – or not :?:

    always gaps to fill. that’s the fun in collecting. like the 1979 AU cassette i finally received in the mail yesterday. it’s the bees knees.

    Neat, in that case I think there’s a strong possibility that there’s AU and UK 33 cassettes too. :)
