New pet text - old cassettes

#1 Post by telys »

Neil has dug up "old cassettes from various studio sessions" and posted a pic.

https://www.petshopboys.co.uk/pet-texts ... /cassettes

Now, is there anything of interest here? Some "monitor" mixes of Performance and a few session mixes from the 80's. Anything that sheds any light on songs/tracks/mixes?

I wonder if he’s got a cassette player to play them on?

Can anyone decipher bottom left? The middle word looks like “album”; can’t work out the other two.
Woof.

Interesting to note that the "Opportunity" cassette has artwork on the inlay - it looks like it's styled as a U.S. bank note with Neil and Chris in the center - next to them on the left would be one of the seals of the note. I'm going to assume the tape marked Robbie Williams was whatever they worked on with him. The blue, white and red tape is a mystery. Another mystery is the labeling of the 12" for Suburbia as it's written as "Suburbia" 12" so far. Could this be another 12" version or....? It's hard to make out what the tape on the bottom left has written on it.

On closer inspection, thats the same/similar picture as used on the Parlophone 7" of West End Girls
