The Tapes - On A Clear Day (LP, Passport/Wea, 1981), The Tapes - Blue Tighs (7", Passport, 1980)
As promised last week or so, here is 'On A Clear Day' by The Tapes, the third and final album. For this album Huba de Graaff of Transister was a member, but she left the group during the recording. Also present are Henk Hofstede and Michiel Peters from The Nits and Mathilde Santing. The album was well received, but didn't sell very well and the band decided to split up. Various members will show in Mathilde Santing's band later on.
As someone asked me about the 7"s. From this album 'Bits And Pieces' was released as a 7", which I don't have, so I don't know if it sounds different. However from the previous album, I have the 'Blue Tighs' 7", which of course I should have included when I uploaded 'Party', but I didn't, I do it now. Thanks to the same source who gave me 'Party'!
