Other way around: if there is no tab, you can't record. The store-bought album cassettes just have an indentation -- if you want to tape over them, the easiest way is to put a piece of scotch tape over the indentation and you're good to go ;-)

I stand corrected. Yes, now I remember.. you broke out the tabs to stop them being over recorded on blanks you had recorded.
