From Leap Decade:
The Celia Mancini Tapes is a compilation album of highlights from Celia's personal cassette collection, recorded between the period 1988-98, sourced from 4-track demos, practice room jams and cassette-dubs from long-lost studio session reels. In early January 2017, I helped Celia to collect the tapes from random storage locations that she had stashed them in decades previously, including dusty closets, car-boots, crumbling boxes etc, and then by mid-2017, around 200 of the cassettes had been digitised.
Celia was a well-known New Zealand underground rock musician, and when she sadly passed away at the age of 50 in September 2017, permission from the family was secured to compile a memorial album, to be pressed in a limited edition of 300 copies, (vinyl-only).
