RecordingTheMasters, the putative global leader in reel-to-reel tape manufacturing, has announced they will be reissuing a handful of critically-lauded albums for the first time on cassette.
But not just any cassette.
Each album will be reissued on RecordingTheMasters’ peerless FOX C-60 high quality audio cassette tape. The French company also announced that they will be making their B-1000 Portable Cassette Player available in the United States.
Working with ThinkIndie Distribution, the roster of releases is pretty impressive and includes: Sturgill Simpson’s Cuttin’ Grass, Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions, Major Lazer’s Peace Is The Mission, Maren Morris’ GIRL, Lupe Fiasco & Kaelin Ellis’ HOUSE EP (including both the original EP and instrumentals), The Mavericks’ En Español, The Story So Far’s Proper Dose and Killswitch Engage’s Atonement.
All of the releases are available at independent record stores across the nation now.
RecordingTheMasters’ mission statement explains why they are at the forefront of analog cassette technology: “We are the leading manufacturer of professional and semi-professional analog audio tapes providing superior recording and sound playback qualities. Our products are made in France and used worldwide in major recording studios, for archive and instrumentation markets.”
