Dear DCC enthusiasts,
Friday, I received some new bought cassettes.
One of these cassettes is a mysterious prerecorded tape without any cover, booklet, inlay or lable. Only a mysterious yellow post-it saying "Master 1 – 9248013” under the plexiglas. See both attachments.
It has no holes drilled in it so it can’t be recorded afterwards. Some investigation learned it is the “Supertramp - Brother where you bound” album with 6 songs with scrolling ITS Lyrics on DCC 730 , title, artist information. Total time album time as shown on display is 42:43. Song layout on the tape:
“Still in Love” 4:36
“No Inbetween” 4:36
“Better Days” 6:15
"[Brother Where You Bound] 16:30
“Ever Open Door” 3:06
On the DCC Museum - All DCC collections I learnt there are three demo DCC releases E, J and K. Since I have no idea if this DCC is one of those three releases or a total unknown one I reach out to a Marktplaats (Dutch eBay) seller offering the same kind of tape. He said that his version of the Supertramp Demo DCC has 10 songs, 5 on each side (1-6 are the same as listed above while 7-10 are the same as 1-4). I Also contacted the person from who I bought this mysterious tape. He told me that he got this master tape from a friend who (back then) worked at a studio here in the Netherlands.
So all in all very mysterious and I hope someone can help me out here. As always big thanks in advance for your response, questions, remarks and ideas !
