Title: Where can I buy Dan cassettes online?
Post by: Calibat on March 22, 2008, 12:08:55 PM
Is there any place where I can buy Daniel Johnston's cassettes online?

I just want online stores because I'm from Portugal so I can't go to the US to buy it  :roll:

peace!  :-D

Well, that's what Jeff ("Stress") thought, too.

A few thoughts:

1) Even when the Stress tapes were still available, they went for WAY too much on Ebay, apparently because people didn't realize they could still buy them at retail back then. They'll only keep going higher and higher now, of course.

2) A nice thing about tapes (as opposed to records) is that you can make your own. Especially since Dan's tapes aren't the hi-est of fi, you should have no problem duping them (for personal use only) off of a legitimate CD, LP, or e-music.com*

3) Art-wise, you should be able to find scans of the front cover art online. As far as the inside credits/song titles, just type them in -- if you'll notice, many of the original cassettes used this option because there was no way to remove the inside sheets from the master tapes without destroying the paper Dan wrote them on. (I actually have some "proof sheets" of artwork from several tapes, but I don't know whether I should share them or not. Doing so might not be appreciated by the Johnstons, and even if it was OK'ed, I don't want to wind up being responsible for a sudden wave of bootleg copies sweeping the nation.**)

*If I got the name wrong for the company that officially sells Dan downloads, someone PLEASE correct my reference ASAP!!!

**I might be up for scanning/mailing slightly altered versions of the proofs to people who want to make their own cassettes, if I come up with a satisfactory way to do so that would make them clearly not the real deal.

What is the reason for stress not selling them anymore?

Is this something that is ok to ask and talk about?

Stress has been asked not to by representatives for the family.
I believe it may be of a sensitive "legal" nature, and a family matter.
