    Uggh... Nice Watch Presents The Backpack Rap Collection

    Not exactly obscure--I think a lot of people on this board (including me) once owned all these 12"s--but might hit the spot.

    Here's a mix to check out. I remember downloading it from the Vinyl Exchange board a few years back. I dont have any information on it unfortunately. Maybe someone can identify it as far as who made it.

    My favorites were always the first few Eddie Ill and DL mixtapes. Anybody have these digitized? I've been looking for ages.

    Different Serg, but I thought the same thing too.

    yeah, i thought to myself when i met him, damn he got sexier.

  • B-Cause and I did a 90's indie mix about 3-4 years ago. We didn't put it out because it was lacking.

    I might have a CD-R somewhere of it. If so, i'll upload it.

    Whoa...there was a time on SoulStrut when you could request 95-98 era underground Hip-Hop and not get made fun of?

    Must've been nice.

    If that was the benchmark there would be no posts on here ever.

    overwhelming task

    I've been going through and converting all the tapes of my college radio show and using this:

    http://www.amazon.com/AGPtek®-Portable-Cassette-Converter-Headphones/dp/B005NGJLYW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436036991&sr=8-1&keywords=usb+cassette

    Quality is questionable, but then again, so are the source material. At this point just having them digitized is more important to me.

    I've looked at some of the conversion services out there, and they are $$$.

    Why convert? Just listen to the tapes.

    If you need digital versions you can "buy" them.

    That's the best part about tapes - they are all a little bit different. Unless you are copying straight store bought copies which serves no purpose.

    Mixtapes, or tapes made off of the radio, or tv, or whatever. Sometimes listening to a mix or something off the radio is as interesting as the music itself.

    Not to mention the numerous additional mixes and b-sides they use to throw on CASSINGLES.

    Before I bought the player I linked to from amazon above, I didn't even have a cassette deck anymore. Tapes also degrade and break. I've already had to repair one of the recordings of my radio show.
