Mixtape: Helen’s Tape by @isfromupnorth

‘Helen’s Tape’ and ‘NOW 11’ were my first ever tapes.

Helen's Tape and NOW 11

My Aunt gave them to me and said ‘Play them really loudly to annoy your father’ πŸ˜€

My Aunt is my Mum’s youngest sister and has always been in to 80’s and rock music and she influenced my taste, so these tapes mean a lot to me. They are both from 1988, and if I could get them on cd now I would be amazed! Here’s Helen’s Tape recreated on Spotify:
