Props for this. One of my favourite tapes. I've been meaning to get it digitized for ages, but you saved me the trouble. Might have to cop some of those CD's.

Yo G-BO any chance you gonna make Tapes #1-#8 available as well? I needs the whole collection my mellow.

Soul...Thanks for shining light on these classics.

G-bo. Neil Armstrong is my boy. He told me that you are a definite inspiration to his mix series. No need to question why that is...Enoughrespect everytime soundboy!!

G-Bo said...

Thanks for all the love out there for real. I'm still amazed at how much these tapes meant to people over the years...I enjoy the stories about where folks would go to cop them and how they would get stolen, etc. That shit does NOT get old to me. It is much appreciated...Oh...for the guy that wants #'s 1-8...those were house and freestyle tapes lightly sprinkled with reggae that Rei made with his OLD partner Richie (thus the name DOUBLE R for Richie & Rei!) so long story short...I don't think they are attainable...besides...Those numbers are reserved for if Rei & I ever got back together and started causing trouble again.

@ Soul: Thank you! I believe #14 is one of a few tapes I don't have in my collection! Props!

@ G-Bo: My man, you are a legend in the mixtape game! Please believe I'll be comin' out the pocket to cop both sets of CD's. It'll save wear & tear on my tapes!

G-Bo, I would travel to Triple 5 Soul in LES or Union to cop your tapes back in the day...And I remember every local neighborhood kid would come in endlessly to check if any new tapes came in. You had LES on lock. I miss that whole vibe and anticipation of your mixes or music for that matter (vs. today's 'quick fix' downloads). Mad respect, many thanks...Peace
