Your kids (and grandchildren) probably don't think you're quite as cool now as you thought you were when 8 tracks were all the rage. Relive a little bit of the 1970's. 8 track tapes rock and always have.
The Mini 8 track tape is something you've probably never seen. The one pictured to the left was recently offered for sale on eBay...and still sealed! This mini folding 8 track was a various artists compilation titled simply "Rock Hits" with five songs:
(I Know) I'M LOSING YOU - Rod Stewart
STONES - Neil Diamond
MOONSHADOW - Cat Stevens
BABY I'M A WANT YOU - Bread
OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG - Three Dog Night
MAGGIE MAY - Rod Stewart
This particular 8 track was made around 1971. Lear Jet made the format for a short time and only a couple hundred titles were ever made available. This tape recently sold on eBay for a bargain at just under $130. The tape, in my estimation - despite being a compilation - would be valued at five times that price. I've owned over 100,000 8 tracks bought from all over the country and have never even seen one of these in person. The eBay auction only had 76 views, so not many people even knew this was being auctioned off. The high bid before I placed my bid was $16.
