Cassette Tape of the Day: Bauhaus

My car has no CD player, just a tape deck. So I recently started scanning the cassettes at thrift stores. Usually it's a lot of Bolton and Dion and Garth Brooks and Christmas schmaltz, but every so often something good turns up, like this 25-year-old copy of The Sky's Gone Out by Bauhaus (for which I paid 75 cents). The cassette appears to have been played hundreds of times and is stained and yellowed like my teeth (but I'm working on that). Still, it plays beautifully.
