8-Track Library

8TrackWhen 7-tracks aren’t near good enough, it’s time for the heavy artillery. Here is, save for a few, the “less than complete” 8-track collection. The player ate Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., so we’ve been reeling Janis Joplin, CCR, and the brothers Doobie as of late. Analogue entertainment is still prominent around these here parts, and with any collection, the end is never near.

  1. I wonder how it happened…
    “Here’s this neat Janis Joplin 8-Track. Must buy it as an example of an outmoded format.”
    Later…
    “Hey, just found seven cartridges in a Goodwill shop!”
    Then…
    “What a NEAT case for holding 8-Tracks. I’ll just collect enough to fill it”
    Next…
    “Here’s a great suitcase to hold my 8-Track carry cases…”
    No. It never ends.

    • It doesn’t!! I’ve owned two 8-track players in my life, my boombox (before it was called that) began eating tapes on a daily basis and had to retire, but the all wood (covered) stereo jalopy still sits proudly withing our modern day living room. (I’m currently hunting down an 8-track copy of London Calling… I know they exist.)
