The Year of the 8 Track: A Travelogue

Isn't that beautiful? To me, it's almost like porn. Don't get jealous, the 8 tracks in the picture on the left are mine. Mine! I've never been so happy!

A month or so ago, I decided to further explore this bit of analog science--like over a 1,500 albums didn't get me there enough. Still I remembered how 8 tracks sounded different and often better than their vinyl counterpart. Believe it or not, I'm still single.

Oops A' Daisy-Right after I was about to have a party, reality beckoned. Looks like I have to fix some tape! Here's a list of what I got...
