Maxell Tape Ads…

A very quick post today, and one that I’m certain will stir similarly happy memories in all you forty somethings out there…

I’ve heard both these songs on the radio over the last few days and was reminded of these rather fine 1980’s adverts for Maxell, from a time before computers, MP3’s and all the other digital wizardry that makes things so easy today…

And thanks to the digital wonder that is YouTube, you youngsters can also marvel at the simplicity and effectiveness of the angry youth and the cool soul dude with their Dylanesque cue cards and minimal dancing (even if you don’t really know what a cassette tape is…)

      Hi Tim
      I agree, I always bought TDK C90’s – 45 mins a side, more than enough for one side of an album, and you could always put a few extra tracks at the end to fill the last 10 mins or so…

    I think the yoof of today are familiar with what a cassette tape looks like as they can get a retro cover for their smart phones that looks like a cassette tape.
    I’m holding out for a cover that makes mine look like a Bakelite dial phone!
