Obviously you didn't learn the trick with the matchbook cover.

You had to tear the cover off of the matchbook, fold it up, and figure out where it needed to be stuffed between the 8 track case and the deck in order to stop the squeeling and tape eating.

It kept my old 8 tracks alive for years. Then cassetes forced me to spend all of my money...then cd's....

I remember several years ago around 1999 my 4 year old niece was bugging us about something over and over and over.

Grandma said "You sound like a broken record"

Niece said "What's a record?"


all of us

Threw out all my 8 tracks years ago except these five as they remind me of my first cross country road trip after HS.
Played them over and over and over on that trip and boy what crappy sound in that old mustang!

Who's Next..........The Who
Street Survivors...Lynyrd Skynyrd
Morrison Hotel......Doors
Brothers and Sisters...Allman Bros
Rare Earth "Live"

I used to expect a "fade out" on some songs for years - those are great 8 tracks to keep btw.

I have a throw back friend who still had a player in his 70s era screamin chicken Pontiac.

WUT? The 8-Track with little Jensen speakers in my 1970 Impala sounded freakin' awesome! ---KaKlunkl!

Relatively that is... I replaced the standard AM radio that squaked through that one sun baked center dash speaker.

OK, here's one. QUADRAPHONIC stereo system! I bought one on Guam when I was stationed there in 1975. Four speakers each independently driven. The sound was completely surrounding you. Of course that went the way of the 8 Track faster than 8 Tracks. I still have a quadraphonic reel to reel tape.

Oh, yes. 10 inch reel to reel tape decks for the ultimate in sound.

anime? manga? pokemon? Fuggedaboutit. We had "Speed Racer" every day after school and were happy with it. Even if the characters only moved once every 27 seconds.

My neighbor had a Panasonic quadraphonic system. The receiver had a joystick control in a square with little lights on each corner for each channel that lit up when that speaker was loudest. You could move the joystick around to highlight any speaker or side at any point..

Smoke a joint, put on Dark Side of the Moon and rock that quad system while watching the lights move around the square and you can pretty much call it a day....

You're all spoiled to me! Try all of the above while growing up in a third world country with a cumulative inflation of 2,200,200% (yes, two million percent!) between 1985-1990. That'll teach you!

I couldn't find them. I might have been confused by this page which has 4 videos: http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdail...rk-side-of-oz/

But if you search in youtube for "dark side of oz" you can find the whole thing split up in like 10 parts.

You tell me! I remember it from the other side of "the wall". Actually, don't miss it at all, except in some realy weird ways. Not sure about your situation in the U.S. back then, but ours was a bit tough and bitter. But it's gone now and I hope it never returns. And the best thing is we can enjoy skiing all around the world! . The only thing you need is enough money and time .
