No dice, but thanks for the tip anyway.
Only dropped a dollar on it. No big deal.

If you feel like performing surgery, you might want to transplant the tape into another shell with screws on it. If the original shell does not have screws then an exacto knife / cutter should be able to open it.

Make sure to take a photo of the opened donor cassette prior to removing the tape so you have a map to place the new tape in properly 8)

Best of luck Tankist!

OK, my fear has been allayed. After reading every reply in this thread, I've decided it's all right to post home-recorded tapes.

Deep Purple, Machine Head, 1972.
The record was purchased between August and November 1984, and was inadvertantly destroyed two years ago.
Prog rock.

Deep Purple, Who do we think we Are, 1973.
The first listing of records includes this one. That means it was purchased between mid-1975 and December 1978. It was inadvertantly destroyed two years ago (as were all records listed under the letter D.)
Prog rock.

Eddie and the Hot Rods, Teenage Depression, 1977.
This, and Life on the Line (other side) are on the first listing of records. They're high on the rotation list.
All records under the letter E were accidentally destroyed.
This is the only version I've heard of Get out of Denver, and up until a few years ago, the only version of The kids are all Right.
Rock and roll, at its best.

Music_mota_beer,
If I may be so bold...
With that many records destroyed, what catastrophe brought this unfortunate situation to bare?
I hope this isn't opening old wounds.

I had two water damaging episodes in the mid 90s (frozen pipes) and had to cull many cherished record covers but the vinyl was still serviceable.
I've been lucky since.
