GAJOOBilation 7.1


Cassette | 1990

Issue 7 of the magazine was published with 7 compilation cassettes, featuring tracks from many of the albums reviewed in GAJOOB Zine #7.

The cover was designed by me on a Mac SE in Typestyler. Duplicated on a black toner Xerox on Astrobrite Gamma Green cover stock, hand scored and inserted into clear cassette shells. I purchased a bulk order of cassette labels for the shells and hand wrote the volume information.

The cassettes were dubbed in real time on the dual cassette machines I had at the time.

I guess there were less than 100 of any one cassette distributed; maybe a couple dozen people purchased the entire set of tapes. The tapes were mostly sold to people who appeared on them. That’s something that continues to dishearten me.
