The eventual overflow of media consumption often yields an entirely new media with which to consume. 8-tracks aren’t new around these parts, we’re just finally starting to get serious about them. With any collection, the bar is set, achieved, then moved. This endless cycle continues without rest or hesitation. The current bar is The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society, an 8-track only two people in the online community own. Both have refused my offers to purchase this holy grail of magnetic tape sound recording technology, so this dimly lit search trudges on.
Special thanks to my folks for nabbing up $0.25 8-tracks on their many thrift store adventures.
You’re welcome! Love your posts!!!
For 8-track parts – pressure pads, idlers or even refurbishing tapes..I recommend “The 8-track shack”. They are online….I still play mine.
It is always nice when family members help fuel our collections. My stepdaughter is a garage sale shopper and many times she has stopped by with a huge box of vinyl, everything from Herman’s Hermits to novelty records from the CB craze.
