I was digging through some old boxes in my storage room earlier, and came across a few 8-track tapes I had forgotten I still had. Of course, I no longer have anything to play them on, but I'll bet they'll still play. The ones I found were:

KISS - Love Gun
KISS - Destroyer
Foreigner - Double Vision
Foreigner - Head Games
REO Speedwagon - Nine Lives
ELO - Time
ELO - Discovery
Bee Gees - Spirits Having Flown (I kid you not!)

So who else still has some of these ancient relics lying around?

Those are all old groups. Don't you have any with modern groups?

My eight-tracks are long, long gone. In fact, my LP albums are all long-gone, too. I may still have a casette tape or two somewhere in basement, but I doubt it.

As far as I know, nobody has made them in years, thus there wouldn't be any with modern groups, unless somebody manufactured some out of a sense of nostalgia.

As far as LP's, I had my collection stolen a few years back, which really pissed me off, because it had a few gems in it, including the nude cover of Buckingham/Nicks, the nude cover of Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet, and an original pressing of Styx - The Serpent is Rising (with the collage cover, prior to their moving off the Wooden Nickle label and rereleasing it with the shortened title, The Serpent).

Don't have them any more but before ipods, mp3s, diskmans, and walkman, and boom-boxes. I had one of these

Man a portable 8 track didn't need the car or home stero and it was only the size of a small luggage carry-on. ROFL :)

I wish I knew someone who had an 8 track deck. The first gig I ever played(1976), I have on an 8 track tape. I would love to get it from that medium into the digital domain...
