Forget the Vinyl Revolution - Prince Albums Coming Out on Cassette

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Prince is back the way you remember him in the 80s. With all the charming hiss of the cassette format.

Four classic Prince albums will be reissued on cassette by Warner Music this week for $15 each.

Prince Controversy and Dirty Mind has been available, 1999 is released today, August 5 and Purple Rain can once again be played on tape from August 12 . The only issue may be the DeLoren you may also need to go back to the 80s to find a cassette player to play them in.

The cassettes are available from Amazon in the U.S.

You can get your Prince cassette direct from Warner Music Australia here.
