The Legendary NME Tapes

Leave a comment

In the 1980 the New Musical Express issued 38 cassette tapes for readers, among them several compilations of previously unreleased or otherwise rare tracks, featuring everyone from James Blood Ulmer to The Style Council, Ian Dury to Tom Waits, or Scritti Politti to Madness.

The first few of these tapes came with little booklets that you had to assemble yourself from the NME’s pages, and it’s these »Manuals« that a friend of ours has remastered, updated and re-compiled into CD-sized booklets where you can find all the missing information about these tracks.

Here are the booklets for the first tape, »NME Rough Trade C-81« and the following »NME 001 Dancin’ Master«, both from 1981.
