Oddly enough, last weekend I went to Amoeba records in LA and got that same album on 12" vinyl for 5 dollars!! Too bad my car doesn't have a record player! Hehe, thankfully I have on in my bedroom :P

I found Wideawake in America on tape at a Goodwill for 99 cents a couple months ago though.

Hrmm your tape seems to be missing the live version of 'A Sort of Homecoming.'

And I can't believe 2004 cars come with tape decks! That is amazing. I only have a tape deck because, well, I drive a car made in 1992.

My 2001 car also still has a tape deck. It is integrated into the whole dashboard though (not just the tape deck, but the radio too and the controls for my CD changer). Haven't ever used it though.

*who is one of the lucky ones to have the Australian version of The Unforgetable Fire 12"*

C ya!

Our car has a tape deck as well (it's probably a 2001/2002ish model). I still use tapes b/c I bike/run with a walkman.

Yeah, but more importantly, it has a version of Love Comes Tumbling with alternate lyrics!

Wow, that's cool. I've never seen that before (and I originally bought UF on vinyl and then on cassette so I could play in the car)!

Let's check U2Wanderer.org ...

Interestingly, I can't find that cassette.

My car only has a tape player, so I still buy cheapo cassettes at Goodwill, flea markekts or garage sales if I find good ones (well, at least I used to. I decided to quit after I realized I wasn't even playing half of them). I've seen U2 cassettes on sale there several times, and it made me sad to see such great work lying in the bargain bin along with Paula Abdul and Milli Vanilli tapes. I was tempted to buy them and give them a home, even though I already have my U2 CDs copied to tape for listening in the car!

my car is a 2003 and has a tape deck but that is all I could afford and what they had on the lot. I have a tape adapter for my cd player so its all good.
