The Glorious Eight-Track


Eight-Track Tape

Sort of the prototype of the in-car CD multichanger - in the same way that the PG Tips chimps are the antecedents of modern man. Eight track was going to replace every other way of listening to music.

Designed for car stereos, the chunky cartridges filled with constantly fraying inch tape were expected to be around forever. But then it all went wrong. Some say an asteroid hit the earth, others that we simply realised they were rubbish.
