Several years ago I posted about a mix tape I had received from [livejournal.com profile] blackgryphon decades ago. I've also mentioned it on Facebook. For those just joining us, here's a brief rundown:

The tape included two full albums and some miscellanea. The two full albums were Carmen Miranda's Ghost by Leslie Fish and Vince Emery Presents: The Funniest Computer Songs, both of which are long out of print with virtually no hope of re-release. Because the tape I was recording to was not as long as the original, I had to drop some of the songs. For a very long time I thought the tape was lost, but I found it recently. Sadly, our tape to mp3 converter is incompatible with our current computers, so the tape is sitting in our safe until I stop waffling and procure a new one.

Fast forward to today, when I saw [livejournal.com profile] callicrates' post of a current meme going around -- one that begged for a reference to a song from Carmen Miranda's Ghost. I searched on Google hoping to find the lyrics, but I was happily stunned to see the song show up on YouTube. It turns out that someone had scanned in the whole album (This links to the first song, but YouTube will show the rest of the songs). Not only can I listen to it, but I can finally hear the songs I had left off! This is enough to make me actually haunt YouTube, which I have largely avoided up until now.

Alas Vince Emery's album has not (Yet) received the same treatment, but I can hope.
