Friend of the Hall Martin Newell posted the following call from help on his message board, the Karma Scene, on the off chance that someone may have this item. Townspeople, can you help a brother out?

Hello music lovers,

I need to borrow a good cassette copy of In The Golden Autumn. (August 1983) This is because I need to digitise it to Wav Files for a forthcoming re-release. The actual master tape went missing about twenty years ago..and all I have are MP3s and CDs made from MP3s. But I know there are some reasonable first generation cassette copies out there. ………

Finally: How d’you know that it’s a first gen copy. It will be in a hand coloured thin paper cover, with the little girl depicted in a cornfield.
It’s probably on a plain black cassette with no on-body printing. There may be either FRAU 006 or a simply, 006 written in white chinograph pencil on one side of the tape.# If I find one in the meantime, I’ll post straight up and call off the search.

Anybody out there?

  1. I forwarded this request to a friend of mine whom I know has some Newell cassettes and he responded thusly:

    “I have a copy of this on cassette, but I don’t think it’s an original. My copy seems to be from Burger Record of Anaheim CA. The cassette says Burger Records 036. If this is of any help, let me know and I’ll get this out to you”

    Let me know if this will be useful and we can arrange to get it to Newell.

  2. Thanks, I will pass along this note.
