"The First Tape Album" is a part-studio, part-live cassette-only album released by UK neo-progressive band Twelfth Night in 1980.

Details

Th First Tape Album marks the debut of classically trained keyboard Rick Battersby, who was an old friend of the band (he had helped them with dry ice for their first band contest appearance). Twelfth Night was the first band he joined. His inclusion made the music more full, and more adventurous.

The studio tracks (Freddie Hepburn and Sequences) were recorded at Multium Studios, Wokingham, England, UK, in December 1979. The live tracks (Encore Une Fois and Fur Helene Part 1) were recorded live in concert at Reading University, Reading, 13 November 1979 (Für Helene Part I) and The Bridge House, Bracknell, 12 April 1980 (Encore Une Fois).

The album has been reissued twice, in the 1980s with three extra (and exclusive) tracks, and again in the 1990s with two tracks from the "Skan" demos.

The Cyclops re-issue of Live At The Target contains Encore Une Fois and Freddie Hepburn from this album.
