It's hard not to read that covertape as being for the October 2019 issue. :)

It should be this one:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=23512

It seems the inlay wasn't missing, but the title is wrong. Instead of "Your Spectrum DigiTape issue 04" it should be "Your Spectrum issue 19 - DigiTape 04". Also it's a covertape, not a compilation, since each one corresponds to a magazine issue (although it's an "optional" covertape paid separately).

All these compilations should be listed as published by Digitape (UK) - not Your Spectrum.

They appear to be part of Abacus Programs (UK) as they have the same address and telephone number:

Not covertapes at all!

OK. I will fix the titles but keep them as compilations instead of covertapes.

Thanks!
