If you read these pages with any regularity, you’ll know that I want the cassette to die. It was a fine technology when it was around, but it’s time for it to go away. It’s outdated, outmoded, technologically inferior and generally useless. How many people even have a working cassette player?
I will concede one and one thing only: cassettes can make good collectibles for people who have too much money. They’re tchotchkes, nothing more. Keep that in mind when you’re faced with this new Prince reissues.
