Default The Official 8-Track Lovers Thread

In most audio circles 8-Tracks get a bad rap However there are still many fans of the 8-Track medium and on ebay certain tapes will still sell for 100's of dollars.

I started this thread for 8-Track lovers to share pictures of their collections and talk about their favorite analog medium The Mighty 8-Track!



Did you know 8-Track Tapes have a higher sound quality than cassette tapes? The Cassette Tape was more versatile and compact than 8-Track tapes however the sound from an 8-Track Tape provides a higher quality of sound.

Here are the Alice Cooper 8-Tracks I listen to often.

The RED 8-Tracks for "Zipper Catches Skin" and "Dada" are ones I made myself using my LLOYD'S 8-Track Recorder, they were never released on 8-Track:

Here is my ANGEL collection, the ones on the left are sealed (never been opened) the ones on the right are the ones I listen to.

I peeled the "Sinful" label off one of the 8-Tracks and the "Bad Publicity" label was underneath it

The RED 8-Track for "Jaws 3-D" I made myself using my LLOYD'S 8-Track Recorder, it was never released on 8-Track:

Great topic, as this reminded me that 8-track is making a comeback. Not a big mind you, but still. The fact that artists are putting out nrw music on 8-tracks speaks to the power and longevity of physical media.

Evertime I buy an 8-Track Tape before I pop it in my player I send it to Kate's Track Shack and for a few dollars they will tune up the tape and make sure it plays perfectly. I can't recommend them enough, they are friendly and fast and do a Great Job:
