Default Foo Fighters Cassettes - Collectors Thread

I thought about starting up a thread about FF cassettes.

If someone would like to post the available cassettes here i will edit this post so people can check in what cassettes is out on the market.
And also tips for collectors what cassettes are legit and which they should beware of.

Personally i dont have a clue about which cassettes are available but i think of completing my collection with cassettes one day and would be great to find out all there is to know!

Thanks!

I really don't know if it;s legit.

A friend of mine is now in the Phillippines i told him to look for cassettes over there.
He said there is a lot of counterfeit over there, They copy the orginal release and just sold blank cassettes hehe. I gonna ask him to send a lot of orginal cassettes.
If he has more info i will post it here.

Real rating 8/10

Does this exist - yes
Could this seller be selling a fake one - yes
Would you know - its sealed so yep, you'd have to open it to find out

While I was trawling I did pick up a very cheap 1st US cassette sealed, and a mint US TCATS cassette that ive looked for for a bit, so I had a pretty good night.

First I had to clean and play the UK TCATS vinyl that arrived today... All I need now is that one sealed too and my TCATS vinyl is complete Well I can keep dreaming - one sealed copy will probably be all I ever see let alone own lol.

I love collecting cassettes. Oddly, they slip under the radar of most people and can be picked up quite cheap. Currently pulling all my stuff out of storage and uploading to discogs. Cassettes being done tonight hopefully so I'll update a bit later on. Haven't got all that many but I remember a few from the last time I collected and just some stuff I've seen around in the last 6 months or so.

Good one - I plan on doing the same, but I want to get together good clean photos of anything thats not on there or isnt correct as well, because some of its a bit messy. First I'm working on my list of everything I dont have. So its going to take a bit of time, but Im definitely going to do it too.

For Pocketwatch tapes, try this...

In ebay, create a saved search for Pocketwatch including descriptions and Worldwide then set it up to send an email every time one is created. There's not that much that gets flagged under this, there's a band with an album called Pocket Watch that comes through every now and then, but it's totally worth having this come into your inbox. Last summer I think 5 went on sale in the space of 2 months. You might therefore find it's a while before more come up.

I got mine last year for just over £100. I was well surprised, the previous one I bid on went for £600. Mine came from the US, took 3 weeks and then I got stung with a £20 customs charge. Bastards!

It's framed and hanging on my bookshelf.

This one on ebay now isn't too bad a price I suppose if nobody else bids on it. If it goes into a frenzied war it may get out of hand lol.

Out of habit I still add them to my watch list and see what happens. After about 10 years of trying to get one, that's a habit that will die hard!!

I was going to do my cassettes this weekend but I had a special last minute gig to go to last night and today I'm knackered!

That auction has been around for nearly a year. I messaged him for Pocketwatch only and he said no. But it's been a year and it hasn't shifted so he might reconsider. I appreciate the set is a nice collection, but does anyone care about the other releases?

if you're interested, keep your eye out for the Neopolitan vinyl set which has a Late! song on it. Really cool set of vinyls. Link tomorrow, I'm currently on my phone.

Looks like now would be the perfect time to ask. The auction is over and no one won it the owner may have a change of heart this time around.

I agree, and since no one got the 3000 package in almost a year, it's very unlikely that someone will now. it's everything super rare and I bet there's a lot of great stuff, but people are interested in pocketwatch, that won't change ever.

Going off topic slightly linking to vinyl:

http://www.discogs.com/Various-Neapo...elease/1199902

1 for sale for $25. Not bad.

Not really sure how rare this is. This listing needs more pics. Something else for me to do!
