Chinese Democracy on cassette?


Recommended Posts

As the title implies, was Chinese Democracy ever released on audio cassette? I don't believe it was in the US, but curious on foreign markets.

I have a "classic" vehicle from 1999 that only has a cassette player, so I have been collecting some of my favorite albums on cassette to play in it. 

Thanks!

Not officially, but there have been some bootleg cassettes made, as far as I know. Idk how easy they are to get tho.

I appreciate the response! I guess I'll just hope their next album is on cassette. :D

Or, I'll just get with the times. :P

Could you record your own "mixtape" using the CD as a source? I can't imagine a bootleg copy of Chinese on cassette would sound very good tbh.

Probably, I don't have the tech on hand but I'm sure it could be done. In such a case, I'd opt for a 2000-ish album using the village leaks as source material. Would be more fitting for a '99 Benz too.

Yea, if you're making your own it'd make sense to use the best versions of the songs from the Village leaks.

Years ago I had a boombox with a CD player on top and a cassette player / recorder on the bottom... but finding one of those things that actually still works might be harder than finding a bootleg cassette :lol:

I've been tinkering with various cassette players. Sadly as it relates to this conversation, I have found that boombox cassette decks seemed to have aged the most poorly. (Thats only like having worked with 3, mind)

For doing a dub from a CD Id suggest a really high quality (for its time) tape recorder. The type a journalist or interrogator might have used. Make sure its not micro cassettes! They'll have an aux in, so youd be set to go from cd player.

I think for digital you could go out the headphone jack of a digital player, into the same type of tape recorders mic input? Im not as sure about that as I am the above, CD option. It could end up mono? Think you might need an ad/da convertor?
