New 'Found Tapes' Blog


I just purchased many tapes of Raï-type music that were produced in France in the 90's and was surprised to find none of them available on the internet. There is also virtually no information about the labels that released them, and little about the singers. So I decided to post them on a new blog, hoping that some people will help me write the story of this very short yet prolific period of tape dealing in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Genève and Bruxelles.
