Megamix 3

Last one. Aside from Grandmaster Flash, I think these experiments were also driven by discovering I had a tape recorder with a very efficient pause button. All the source material on my mixes comes from cassette tapes rather than the original records suggesting they were made on one of those double cassette dubbing tape machines. Although we could put the music in juxtaposition, we did not have the capability of dubbing it on top of other pieces, preventing us from doing a real Grandmaster Flash. Nor did we possess more than one record deck. Again, this will be from about 1981. At the time I did not see any distinction between making music using guitars and other instruments and making it in this way and I still do not.
