 $3 to recycle cassette tapes. What a steal.
so I did it. I decided to leave jr. high behind, and I would start by getting rid of all my cassette tapes, the tapes that I labored to collect, the mix tapes from ex-boyfriends, evidence of my cool kid credibility. I had to admit that I didn't listen to any of this stuff anymore, and would not be purchasing a cassette tape player anytime in the near future. I piled them into a paper bag, and searched for "cassette tape recycling." When I found out that Green Citizen was in my area, I squealed with delight. For fifty cents a pound, they recycled my jr. high memories. Good Riddance! They are open 7 days a week, have 2 parking spaces for their downtown SF location, perfect for when you have to haul in bigger electronics like stereos, and computer monitors (which they recycle for FREE). The people in there are super nice, I talked to Dwight. Thank you Green Citizen for the doing the earth (and my conscience a favor).

i ended up taking these off of dr. phobs hands way back when...

13 years later i got a new deck and am going thru them, finding a few good-sounding master cassettes that dont exist on archive/etree. most are phish but im currently listening to a tasty first set of buckeye lake 92 (akg 414b XY) on a clean sounding MX-S

ive got all the tools here, would prob do them using nak480>AD2K. what i *really* need is someone who has the etree sources at hand to compare

there are some sources here that have lineage, where etree shows unknown lineage, and vice-versa. Is there anybody that has a stash of all the stuff on db.etree? it could get tedious trying to track down sources  seeded over 10 years ago to compare if its worth uploading

(then again, if those sources have disappeared into the ether, i guess its worth uploading a new version, even if same source)
