Cassettes go Bananas

Jose Galvan emails to say Deep Purple cassette tape releases did not end with The Battle Rages On as we thought. He has confirmed official cassette editions of  Come Hell or High Water from Germany, Purpendicular (Europe and America), Abandon from Holland and Bananas from Germany once again. So the format lasted much longer than expected as far as Deep Purple albums are concerned.  The later editions are very hard to find. There are also tapes from Indonesia, Russia and other places but we cannot be sure if these are legit or not.
