Who cares that you could only fast forward the 8 track cartridge at double speed if you had a really posh player, or the fact that it would often change channels and play a different song if your car went over a bump in the road – they looked good. Seeing a nice selection of cart goodies in the motorway service cafe is something I miss and I remember looking enviously at the mains version of the player/recorder in the teak cabinet at the home of a neighbour. Of course, real cool dudes had the space age chic style player.
Anyway, you may not be able to find anything more than the odd James Last or Bert Kempfaert 8 track in the second hand shops of Britain, but elsewhere cartridge addicts keep the 8 track state of mind alive. If you feel like a trip down 70s 8 Track memory lane, stop off at 8 Track Heaven today !
