Ayu cassettes

Can anyone tell me about these? They read as they were "manufactured and distributed by p.t. indo semar sakti" and for sale in indonesia only, licensed through avex asia limited.

They have AV then numbers for the label code and then a barcode. i know indonesia is still very big on cassettes, but wanted to know if these are for sure official?

Some Asian territories had official cassettes produced. eneabba/nick's site documented a lot of the official ones... I think they were made up till the early/mid 00s? Secret looks like it had one.

Man, those good old cassette days...no one releases music in cassettes today, right? It sounds weird for a 2006 album to be released on a cassette.

Cassettes are coming back, though. Maybe not on a large scale, but some people are releasing them as a collector's item of sorts, similar to vinyls.

Yeah, I miss cassettes too. Especially these days, where almost everything is digital.

Hi, i'm from Indonesia,

I have some Ayu's album in the form of cassetes,
likes GUILTY, Secret, A BEST 2 BLACK, A BEST 2 WHITE, A BALLADS, RAINBOW, A BEST, I am... and many more





and ALL SURE OFFICIAL

even in the 'GUILTY' album there is a pose that is not released either in the other jackets format

subsequently released in the CD ONLY format (likes A SUMMER BEST, Rock 'n' Roll Circus, A Classical)

Spoiler:








Lastly, I got the 'A CLASSICAL' album that became the end of the Indo Semar Sakti's released

I'm always on the lookout for Ayu cassettes but they seem pretty uncommon.

Now that you mention it...I have never seen a version of the I am... cover where her legs are visible. I've seen other shots from the booklet etc where you can see them and those tan boots she's wearing but never the cover shot!

Yep! Lol.

I know Indonesia still officially sells cassettes, but I'm wondering how official these really are for the reasons above...

Not for now anymore. We don't even have CD stores right now, all moved to digital.

They are 100% official, PT Indo Semar Sakti licensed it from Avex Asia and produced their own copy with some translation or design (like cassette because original from Avex did not produced in Cassette format) so i assume PT Indo Semar Sakti design themselves hence comes they typo :p
