Format(s) Cassette
Running time(s) 71:40


Background[edit]

  • A Few Old Tunes seems to be sourced from a cassette tape containing a (presumably) hand-selected set of pre-BoC Maxima tracks. The leaking of these tracks to p2p networks (Soulseek, originally) provided much drama on WATMM.
  • Commonly referred to as A Few Old Tunes, due to its label; however, according the Twoism forum user dealer, who posted new photos of the cassette and liner notes, it is also the true Old Tunes Vol. 1 (and not the tape previously assumed to be OTV1). But, on the other hand, the WATMM forum user phaelam posted new scans from a different angle which depict A Few Old Tunes as the cover and the cassette label. This leads to believe Boards of Canada used two different labelings for the very same cassette. See the two conflicting scans below.

Availability[edit]

Cover[edit]

  • According to KToiBalToi: "the girl on the cover of "a few old tunes" is Louise Campbell, the younger sister of (Peter) Iain Campbell who has worked with them on other art projects. I think it was taken as a still from an old family video."[1]
    • The image is also used on the cover of Hi Scores.
