The Great Lost Kinks Cartridge

LostWe touched upon the unauthorized “collateral” vinyl version a few years back, but I just got my grubby mitts on an 8-track copy of the 1973 lawsuit-inspiring classic comp, The Great Lost Kinks Album. Featured here are both the cartridge and the original sleeve (which is essentially the same sticker used for the tape, covering a generic black cardboard sleeve). I need to get an 8-track cleaner to fully enjoy this historic little gem, but my 8-track obsessed mind can gleefully cross off yet another Kinks Stereo 8. Next on the coveted list of “must haves” is 1971’s Muswell Hillbillies, arguably my favorite Kinks package. The Prudent Groove… collecting obsolete and sub-par music formats since 2013, and not second guessing a minute of it.

  1. Wow, what a cool find! I managed to find a copy of Guns N Roses Live like a suicide on LP not so long ago, maybe not quite as rare, but its still cool to find these less common items

    • That’s an amazing find! I still don’t have Live Like a Suicide! Good eyes! I’ll never forget finding Appetite at a Goodwill opened, but still in its plastic sleeve. It wasn’t the banned cover, but in the sea of Lawrence Welk and Mantovani, it was a discovery not to be forgotten.
