Mike Basman’s Original Audio Chess cassettes now digitised
Audio Chess, run by International Master Michael Basman, was set up in the 1970’s. The organization produced cassette tapes covering most of the frequently used opening systems and many pioneering tapes on completely new lines, such as the St. George, the Macho Grob and the Bishop c5 and Bishop e2 Sicilian lines. The tapes are of historic interest having been recorded by such famous chess players as Tony Miles, Ray Keene, Jon Speelman, Nigel Short and others. Chess Cassettes are an innovative teaching tool since they allow the pupil to listen to the analysis, and make moves on a chess board where required. This avoids the tiresome problem of continually switching the eyes from book to board and back again. The pupil is often asked to study a particular position and suggest a move. The tape gives immediate feedback to correct or incorrect responses and thus aids learning.

10. St. George’s Opening
19. The Grob Meets its Match
