Der Komissar by After the Fire.  But I'm listening on analog tape.

Problem with MC is that they are quite, eh, 'lossy' technology. So if you have the feeling it's not the same as what you've heard in the past... well, you're right :)

But again, everything was lossy back then (not in the same way though).  It didn't dismiss bits and bytes, but just rolled of highs or distorted.

Theoretically Vinyls preserve much better, but yep, still "lossy" over time.

Not as lossy as any streaming services, when they decide to shut down the servers, anyway ;)
