A Record Collector's Guide

Simple Machines CS, released 1991 (U.S.)

The Tsunami demo cassette is now the stuff of legend. It is nearly impossible to find. I have seen two copies for sale ever. It was a 10-track release. Versions of some of those tracks made it onto other releases, but there were some exclusives. The cassette insert was nicely printed. The cassette itself was just a standard commerical Maxell tape. Someone actually digitized the whole thing and put it on YouTube, which was good of them. So you can hear the songs without having to track down the cassette.
