So I got Guardians of the galaxy for Christmas, was a pre-order and came with the awesome mix on tape... Yes, literally on tape, that ancient tech from the 90's.

I read it was supposed to have a download code somewhere online, but I can't find it anywhere. I would dub it to digital, but the quality is likely to be poor and I realized I don't know anyone with a tape player. Does anyone know if I am missing something, or do I just have a decoration?

compared to other analogue (vinyl, reel to reel tape) and good digital the tape is likely to sound crap.

mass produced music cassettes usually used low quality tape in poor housings.

you might be able to crack it with one of the super cassette decks - eg nakamichi, tandberg, revox.

where are you located ?

I recently watched for the first time; XXX: State of the Union, Ok I will give it 3/5 but what caught my attendion was the classical crossover and synthpop group; 'Bond'. I liked their electronic violin music so much I straight away went into iTunes and bought "Explosive - The Best of Bond" Love them.
