Just a thought on the sticker one - if Kung Fu had the original masterings, and we know the Buddha Promo tape has a similar sticker, could Kung Fu have produced the sticker ones prior to the CD release? 

I had a similar thought and discussed this with @daveyjones, since those white tape stickers are about as generic and common as it gets we don’t think it’s wise to assume any correlation.


Also the fonts don’t match and if Kung Fu owned Buddha at that point I don’t think they’d put “Filter Records” on the tape still.

As a blink-182 collector, one of the most sought after items you can own is an original "Buddha" cassette tape. They recorded this in January 1994 at Doubletime Studios and released it through a frien

My white label copy is numbered at the top too… just would like to have a definitive answer on real vs fake! I think I’ve seen at least one other white label with numbered tops - so at least its consistent

Interesting, wonder if that is a model number of the cassette case or what? Not sure, but will keep an eye out!

I come bearing a purple j-card Buddha tape. I just got this today… Some thoughts!

I believe this exact j-card/tape is already included in @Ry-Bread’s original post, because the person I bought it from sent me an identical photo. Here it is.

And here are my photos

Small observations: The pink tracklisting section on these seem to match @daveyjones' tape/the tapes with the full colour version of this photo. A somewhat dotted line above the track names (instead of a solid line) and a more squashed ‘Filter Records’. Interesting that this section is different but similar across versions.

And it looks like it got wet at some point where it says “super fun extra bonus track”, but the paper itself doesn’t seem affected at all in person. It looks like this is true of the other purple j-cards Ry has posted before. Same marks.

Anyway, just thinking out loud. If nothing else, at least there are more images now! Thanks @Ry-Bread @daveyjones and everyone else for the info gathered here already!

lovely! it's impossible to tell with the J if they are second-gen or not, being a color copy. is the lyric sheet on actual lavender paper? the cassette itself appears 100% legit. congrats on this wonderful find!

Completely chance encounter with someone on Instagram! I have a little Blink collection page on there and the owner reached out.
