  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  7. @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.

  8. The first 'new' Madonna album I bought back in 1992. Amazing artwork by Fabien Baron.
