MEMORY TAPES: 23RD SEPTEMBER 2010
Memory Tapes this week is a story of brotherly love and comes from Steve Campbell. Over to Steve...
"My brother and I grew up (in Canada) loving the same music, in and out of each other's music collections all the time. By the time it came time for us to depart for different parts of the world (him to Vancouver, me to London), he and I and our respective partners had become soul mates.
"Each time we got together after that was an event, a party requiring a soundtrack to which we each brought compilation tapes. My brother was a deadhead (someone who loves The Grateful Dead ) so at first it was mainly me supplying the non-'Dead music but shortly after he joined in with the tape making. It started in 1987 and we now have over 100 of these tapes although now we have children, there is less time to make new ones.
"This one is from 1988 and is the 2nd tape in the series."
