Break out your boom boxes, cause the cassette tape is coming back! Both the East Bay Express and the LA Times recently ran articles about the return of tapes -- an affordable and readily available (at Amoeba, anyway) way to kick out the jams! The articles also cover various bands on the scene now that are releasing their music via cassette only! Catch up on the hype and read the EBX piece here, and the LA Times article here.

Cassettes at Amoeba

Here at Amoeba, we have always shown love for the cassette tape and its rabid fans -- stocking a huge variety of genres and artists, all on cassette, and all hella cheap at that! If you are ready to get back into the wide world of tapes, or if you've never lost your jones for the format, you can get in on the action by coming on in to any Amoeba and picking up bunches of em -- we've got tons o' tapes in country, soul, metal, rock, hip hop, jazz, etc!

To learn further about the possible and probable causes of this return to the cassette tape, we picked the brain of one of our own who is particularly active in the cassette scene: Amoeba employee Jason Pearl.
