8-Track Tapes From The '80s

Contrary to popular legend, the 8-Track wasn't quite dead in the 1980s. It was dying and on life support. They were phased out by the major labels for retail sale by 1983. But not truly dead until 1988 when the very last licensed manufacturer of new commercial 8-Track music tapes, the RCA Music Club quietly discontinued them.

  1. I had no idea that 8-Track tapes were still around in the 1980s. They were non-existent in NYC by that time.
