Author, Daniele Badursi had this to say regarding the book:

“The digital book with cassettes tells us an important historical record. The collection of audio cassettes slows down in the late 90s and stops in the following years due to the initial spread of the cd recorder. To continue in technological evolution with the final step to digital media. As well as liquid music between CD, mp3, streaming, download, YouTube, Bandcamp, and more.

In addition to being a gift for fans, this update is certainly a fair tribute. A tribute that is also dedicated to all the bands that have contributed to the existence of the Italian and foreign underground music scene in the second half of the 1990s.”
