Mix - Tax Scam Record Labels

Recently been obsessed with tax scam record labels. In America around 1976/77 a few labels realised they could write off huge amounts of tax if they released any old records, pretended they'd pressed thousands of them and declared that they hadn't sold well.

Made these two mixes as part of the research process. There about 10 labels known to be tax scams and probably a lot more unknowns. The records tend to be very rare and therefore very expensive though the quality is often patchy as labels were releasing demos and stealing material.
