This is all quite amusing, but the question is: do VHS tapes develop

Got a weird question--
As I was putting some security tags on our tape cases today, I noticed
a
funky musty smell on two of our tapes. The are older tapes, at least
10
years, maybe more. I know that you can expect some wear and defects
to
happen over time, but this is the first time I've noticed a smell.
What's
your opinions on this weirdness?

Thanks,
