Random 35 Tracks Tape
Label(s) Music70
Catalogue No(s) N/A
Release date(s) 1995?
Format(s) Cassette
Running time(s) 84:00
Random 35 Tracks Tape (real name unknown) refers to a collection of 35 tracks leaked on P2P networks around September 2004. Unlike other "Old Tunes" tapes, the tracks are completely unlabeled; however, a few match known tracks from other sources, including commercial releases. No liner notes or tape scan have ever surfaced.

Despite its uncertain provenance, the tape is generally believed to be authentic.

Background

  • Random 35 Tracks Tape 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.
    • All files are encoded as 320kbps MP3.
  • For a long time, it was assumed that this tape was the missing Old Tunes Vol. 1 (since A Few Old Tunes and Old Tunes Vol. 2 were already known), although this was never confirmed. This was finally proven false when, on 08 Aug 2009, Twoism forum member dealer posted new photos of a cassette and liner notes showing the A Few Old Tunes and Old Tunes Vol. 1 were, in fact, the same release.
  • MDG has said that it is not known who compiled the tracks, calling it "a mystery, just a mixture".

Discovery

These tracks appear to have first surfaced on Soulseek under various names, such as "random 35 tracks tape (rarities and the best of - not old tunes v1 or v2)" and "A Few Older Tunes Disc 1/Disc 2", reflecting the uncertainty of the collection's provenance. Early sightings include:
