Our next Record of the Week mid-week bonus is an 8-Track.
Yep, those cheesy tapes that were made for cars, but were a completely stupid format that survived way longer than they should have.
Look at the back side of this tape to see why. The tapes break the songs. Yes, right in the middle of the song it temporarily stops, switches channels, and starts again. Seriously? Who thought this was a good idea?
This is an original from my personal collection. I purchased this tape shortly after I saw Daryl and John in concert at Western Carolina University during the Along the Red Ledge tour. This live recording is a great show even if the tape format isn't. I especially love the recording of Abandoned Luncheonette.
The sticker on the back is a tape guarantee. Anyone remember those?
Why aren't these guys in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Oh yeah, because the Hall of Fame sucks, that's why.
