Throughout the 80's the British music newspaper NME (New Musical Express) gave away a series of 'free' compilation cassette tapes with many of their monthly issues. Almost entirely, they were compiled by Roy Carr, a renowned English music journalist and writer, with a little help from some friends. I collected many of these tapes from '81 until about '87. and they introduced me to a lot of new music that I'd not heard before...........
This is the last of the tapes that I've still got from this series. A great collection of tunes, although not put together very well in my opinion. Perhaps I should have changed the running order? Anyway, enjoy!
Thanks to http://www.mixcloud.com/mayfairmenthol/ for pointing out a cool blogsite where someone has kindy uploaded all of these tapes and many more! Take a look here; http://pressplayandrecord.wordpress.com/
As always; support the artists, buy their music.
