    I change my mind - 8 tracks were good for some things!

    Well, I had hoped this could sit here un-noticed, but that isn't the case. So. I need to sell it and sombody needs to enjoy it. That's just the way this story goes and as much as it pains me to do this, I'm giving somebody in the DFW area the chance to pick this up for $60. Sixty. Sesenta. Soixante. Sechzig. I could keep going, but this isn't a language lesson so much as a sacrifice. $60
    Please send me an email or pm if you're interested. I'll probably be out of pocket most of tomorrow, but back Saturday.

    I don't think it had better sound than cassette after a while, as the endless tape rubbed over itself as it ran. I had a good deck though, and the sound was good enough for the car. It did change tracks 4 times during its run (4X2 stereo tracks) which took getting used to. But cassettes had to flipped over, so I guess that's a wash. Two things I hated about cassettes though-- one was when they would start squeaking as they ran, usually as a result of being left in a hot car, and the other was the frequency with which they would get eaten by the tape deck.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    You won't have that problem with this baby. You can listen all day/all night to songs like this one:

    Digital sound has made an old joke of mine obsolete: If someone who loves books is a bookworm, what is someone who loves tapes?


    BTW, you just have to stop posting these videos by Elaine Elias! I just get over her, then I fall in love again!

    Ok, ok...no more Eliane Elias. I know how addictive she is. Here's somebody you may know...or you may not know
    One of the best versions of that song I've ever heard...

    My favorite version is still Maryann Price's though...
