    Crazy, I was literally just trying to find this so I could decide if I wanted to grab the vinyl but was having a tough time tracking it down. This is great and Mississippi is such an awesome label, I have no idea why I was hesitating. Anyway thanks for sharing!

    Grab one while you can!

    Does anyone know of place to download the rest of the tape series? I have everything from the Root Blog (and know that I should be content :) but would love to get my hands on what I know is some great music.

    Ghost Capital ( has a lot of MR releases and may have more of the tapes in their archives somewhere. It’s a fantastic blog in any case.

    So was this one a cassette before the vinyl release? It’s hard enough to keep up w/ the vinyl that just mysteriously appears in a mist, let alone the store-only cassettes.

    Anathema Den and Experimental Etc. are a couple other good sites to find Mississippi cassette releases. I’ve definitely been on the lookout for the whole series as well!

    I’m not sure about it ever being released on cassette — the 12″ was a reissue of this: and the accompanying 7″ I believe was prior unreleased.
