    Incidentally, I used to own around 1000 cassettes and the ones that were in a yellow box (rare because they were more expensive according to my mate who worked at EMI) were nearly always from the very biggest companies (the majority being any company distributed by EMI). DG cassette boxes were nearly always black but there's always the option that one of the black boxes could have been broken and swapped for a yellow one from the supplier's stock / spare cases (a not uncommon practice)

    As a footnote I'm guessing if the case wasn't yellow but the actual cassette housing, containing the tape, was it might be one of the 70s / 80s EMI recordings. Could be Previn, Muti, Welser-Most, Frubeck de Burgos, etc.

You get used to hearing certain recordings as you grow up and then you look for that same sound for nostalgia reasons. So hoping to find it on vinyl or CD.

    If by some chance someone knows out of the millions of Carmina Burana recordings what I might be talking about, that would be awesome.
    It could be James Levine's recording on Deutsche Grammophon - it is from 1985 and the rear side is yellow - the "spine" is yellow and it has the yellow DG label on it - The one I have has the words Carmina Burana written in white long-hand on the cover and has yellow flames on it - that one is out of print - but this version is for sale used on amazon:
