Original Cassettes /tape covers

Post by CMcDougall » Fri Feb 16, 2018 5:48 pm

Just wondering what the original Program Power tapes looked like.
I found this, just wondered if a copy or in fact original...

I have original A&Fs which are actually Scotch C12 with no covers but label, then the yellow covers.
BugByte had white covers then yellow too.
Does anyone on here collect them? Might sell my lot...

Those Program Power tapes are definitely original Colin - I've seen loads like that, all from different sources.

Edit - some examples here (you might recognise the 'copytape' in the centre of the image!)

^ so I do have a original! 8)
thanks Dave :wink: was about to throw it in my backfield, as had another two same blank tapes, but hand written labels with type in mags stuff on them, so thought was just a nicely made copy, with type writer label.

yes do remember that tape in middle, maxell UR90, & the other 10 that came with it... :-s
