Aaah, there was something so special about cassette tapes! I always looked forward to the inserts and seeing how much folded out. I would read every last word! And I remember when some cassettes were made of "see through" plastic, which at the time seemed so modern and new! The best Madonna cassette, of course, was "Like A Prayer", which smelled like pechulli! To this day, when I smell it, it takes me right back to March 1989 when I bought my copy in Santa Barbara during spring break!LOL, it looks like your copy has no more print left on it! I can't tell you how many of mine lost their print, too. Sadly those days of having something physical to look at and handle are pretty much gone. Now I understand when I was young and all the "old people" missed their vinyl! Oy.
This album changed my life! I should try and find a cassette version. And as for the the post above, I have a LAP cassette at my desk at work, and once in a while I still open it to smell it. I bought it in a street fair a few years ago for $1 dollar! It was sealed and it still has the smell 20 years later! Brilliant!
hahha!!! hey now shane, im one those vinyl people!!! still have it and still love it. xoangel - xoox
Cassette tapes are so precious to me!
omg-my Erotica tape......sigh...sadly, I no longer have it, but these pics brought back memories.
My fave M album, and I do still have the cassette... How I miss those days of going music shopping every week...
@Sergio....I feel so wierd buying my music at Target lately. Makes me feel cheap! But I need to have my CD albums!!! Singles I can deal with in digital. But albums need to be in my hands so that I can touch them and read the booklets.
The first 'new' Madonna album I bought back in 1992. Amazing artwork by Fabien Baron.
I still buy cd's of those I really love but there are so few artists left who make full albums I want to own, M is def one of those artists...
ahhh... when i first got this cd and unfolded that beautiful type layout that Fabian Baron designed i got all wet. best cover ever! i'm glad Dita returned for the Interview editorial... she's been sorely missed.
Didn't even exist internet here in argentina! i heard the song Erotica from de radio when i was on the bus, OOOOOOOH GGGGODDDD!! the casette here in argentina had the track listing in spanish, not so nice :( but rare!
@rl81: indeed...the artwork by fabien was incredible, and still holds up in 2010. Loooooooved the font.
id love to see that diego.
