Recommended Posts

With the resurgence of vinyl what are the chances of 8 track making a return?

Hopefully zero, but one cannot deny the propensity of people to embrace nostalgia even if it is inferior.

"Hmm, that nice warm analogue sound...."

I hope they don't come back. 
 

Now what are the chances that Edison Cylinders will become cool again?

More hipster hype. That said I've heard some pretty nice digital transfers of  8 track tapes.  Often they had bonus tracks or versions not released on other formats. Stones 'Miss You' being one  example.

I wasn't aware of that.  What was the bonus on the Stones "Miss You" (and are your referring to the Some Girls album, or a 8-track single of "Miss You")?

It was the Some Girls album. From memory maybe a Canadian release (?) in any event the Miss You version was an extended one.

Interesting, but last mentions were 5 years ago.  Was it an April fools Joke or it failed to launch?

I love the detail they put into the unit they are showing, right down to the 5-pin DIN on the back for input/output.
