Against my better judgment, I scheduled an appointment to see a guy who was selling a bunch of classic rock cassettes he claimed his late father had recorded. He said that his father’s hobby was creating mix-tapes, some with rather unusual tracks on them. He referred to the songs on these cassette tapes as “deep tracks.”
I was skeptical because who still has cassette mix-tapes anymore and what shape would they be? But I still had a working cassette tape player at home and the guy was practically giving the cassettes away at a buck each. Contrary to my expectations, this guy’s old man had put together an extraordinary library of songs — hidden gems — from some of my favorite classic rock artists.
What a score!
