Secret Tracks


Michael's comment on yesterday's post reminded me that I have an mp3 of one of Select magazine's free cassettes- Secret Tracks. Select Magazine gave away several really good cassettes- the Factory tape Michael referred to, two editions of Secret Tracks and a Future Tracks one, often loaded with different versions or unreleased songs. Select started in the Manchester days, got heavily into Britpop and eventually died a death due to the rise of the internet. Given away in April 1994 Secret Tracks Side A is as follows...

The Shamen - Phorever People (Tommy D Phat Mix)
Cud- Somebody Snatched My Action
Cypress Hill- Scooby Doo
Chumbawamba- Give The Anarchist A Cigarette
Danny Red- Rise Up
Therapy?- Knives (Live)
Sabres Of Paradise- Theme II

Great stuff. Select Magazine initially attracted me because of their tape giveaways, but they quickly became my favorite music magazine of the day. Q Magazine was too full of itself and Uncut Magazine always underwhelmed. Select never seemed to have an agenda and took a fan's rather than critic's point of view.

Same here. There was a 4AD tape (Cocteaus, Fortran 5) with issue 2 that I bought it for but really liked their reviews/articles and I bought the magazine religiously up until the point where it basically became a Britpop magazine around 1995/96.

Would love to get my ears on this! Any chance for a re-upload? :)
