Today we started going through the attic with the idea that we needed to get rid of a bunch of stuff via garage sale or donation. One of the things I plan on dumping is a box of 8-track tapes I acquired a few years ago (to go with my avocado green portable 8-track player). I probably don't need to go into all the reasons why the 8-track is the worst format of all time but is, or was. They were also a huge step down from the album cover in terms of graphic design. In most cases the original front cover art was shoehorned onto the label and the track listing was added in a different format. All that being said, they make more interesting relics than cassettes.
