I have a cassette tape of Freddie's 'Mr Bad Guy' album and wondered if it was rare. I don't know much about it but I know tapes are quite rare than what they used to be.

I got one for 5 bucks not long ago. I can't imagine they are worth too much.

The tapes are worth keeping hold of as they are getting harder to find and will be worth more in years to come. Not worth selling at the min as you only get few quid.

Thanks for the info. :)

I can believe it as I only bought it for 50p.

How many years are you expecting to hold on to it for? Mr. Bad Guy is already 22 years old.

The cassettes are just not worth that much, coupled with the fact that overall the value of Mr. Bad Guy decreased with the recent re-release.

The only thing I like about cassettes these days is that their paper inlay cards are a bit like collecting baseball cards.
