Critically acclaimed releases available on cassette for the first time ever include The Avett Brothers, Jamie Lidell and JD McPherson RecordingTheMasters’ B-1000 Portable Cassette Player now available available in the U.S.
September 14, 2021—In conjunction with RSD Black Friday, RecordingTheMasters—the worldwide leader in reel-to-reel tape manufacturing—and ThinkIndie Distribution are reissuing a series of critically acclaimed albums on cassette for the first time ever. The Avett BrothersEmotionalism and Jamie Lidell’s Muddlin’ Gear will make their debut on cassette, along with JD McPherson’s most recent Holiday offering, Socks. The releases will be available at participating indie record stores beginning November 26; see recordstoreday.com for additional info on RSD Black Friday titles and stores.
The albums will be reissued on RecordingTheMasters’ FOX C-60 high quality audio cassette tape, offering best-in-its-class sound quality in an analog cassette.
In addition to the album releases, RecordingTheMasters will make their B-1000 Portable Cassette Player available in the U.S. With electronics by RecordingTheMasters, the cassette player features built-in microphone and external microphone recording.
The Record Store Day Black Friday cassette reissues come on the heels of RecordingTheMasters’ and ThinkIndie’s initial, highly successful run of cassette-only reissues this past spring, which featured a broad array of releases including Sturgill Simpson’s Cuttin’ Grass, Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions, Major Lazer’s Peace Is The Mission, Maren MorrisGIRL, Lupe Fiasco & Kaelin EllisHOUSE EP (including both the original EP and instrumentals), The MavericksEn Español, The Story So Far’s Proper Dose and Killswitch Engage’s Atonement. All are available now and independent record stores nationwide.
RecordingTheMasters’ Jean-Luc Renou and ThinkIndie’s Scott Register recently discussed the reissues, as well as plans for future series, with Billboard; read the interview HERE.
As all analog music formats (vinyl, cassette, reel-to-reel, etc.) continue to rise in popularity, cassette tapes now outpace all other formats—including vinyl—in consumer-market growth, more than quadrupling since 2011. Artists including Eminem, Jack White, Taylor Swift, Jay-Z, Sufjan Stevens, Lana Del Rey, Muse and Ty Segall have all released recent albums on cassette, and the most recent Cassette Store Day saw RecordingTheMasters partner with New York-based Dala Records for a limited edition mixtape.
With the rise in demand for analog music cassettes, RecordingTheMasters’ new compact analog cassette tape is the first newly produced cassette on the market to offer high quality audio in analog format, ideal for listening, recording and archiving. The cassette tape is manufactured using legendary chemical formulas from BASF at the RTM  facility in Normandy, France. It can be played on any standard compact cassette player, generally available at high-end audio stores and big-box stores nationwide.
RecordingTheMasters is a trademark of France-based RTM Industries, the worldwide leader in the manufacturing of both audio and magnetic tape. Additional info can be found at recordingthemasters.com.
