Did anyone ever bought a bootleg cassette ?

Did they excist actually ?

I mean the releases known on CD or vinyl, but then on cassette?

-

I remember buying one in Tunesia.

But it was just parts of the Lovesexy album with older Prince hits and a few B-sides added.

Not a real bootleg tbh.

In very obscure quality, sped up, mono, different fade outs, etc.

Shit quality tbh, from the label K7 (pronounce that in french...)

I did. There was a record store in my hometown (Ghent, Belgium) that sold them. My first bootleg was a double cd entitled "Wonderboy" with a soundboard SOTT show from Paris and outtakes.
My first cassette bootleg (still have it) was a Wembley show from the Nude Tour.

My first vinyl was in 'From 1999 Till Now' in early 1985. My first tape was a dub of 'Heaven' in 1986.

The Regent of First Avenue on vinyl. The Black album on cassette. I'm not 100% sure but I think it was Cheek on CD

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Slightly of topic. But in 1991 I bought a copy of the black album on cd.
The CD was made out of metal or something. It was heavy. Not a plastic cd. It also had some Asian test printed on it, it didnt even have Prince anywhere on it. Like it was disguised so it wouldn't be noticed as a bootleg. And songs were grouped in 3, 3 songs per track.
I was actually allowed to listen to if before I bought it. I took it back a for a refund a week later. But they kept like $10 bucks. And I used the rest on 2 more cheaper boots

I've never seen another metal or steel cd again
Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

And I descend from grace, In arms of undertow
I will take my place, In the great below

Dat is toch wel toeval.

do you still have it?

That might be some rare weird thing that is worth a little bit so maybe check it out. Just sayin.

When Doves Cry It's A Sign O' The Times 2LP, purchased at my local wrecka stow while out looking for the elusive Black Album (which I finally acquired on vinyl a couple months later).

If you believed that the possibility of a lab leak was a debunked conspiracy theory, you're getting your news from the wrong source. Just sayin'...

I was part of a "tape tree" in the early 90s. I would recieve a cassette in the mail, copy it and send the copy to the next person on the list. It was fun but the quality left a lot to be desired.

First a co-worker gave me a tape with all kinds of good stuff on it; IIRC.

Then had to get the Black Album vinyl.

First CD boot was some monstrosity called Crystal Ball with a purple cover and I think a black and white photo thing. Then I think "Nightclubbing" with the brown cover, aka part of Small Club.
