I'm with you. :)
Cassettes and 8-tracks were short lived for me. I didn't collect many commercially recorded albums but made a few 'mix tapes' along the way. CD's really took over my collection.
fine for mobile use, but I never found a commercial cassette as good sounding as vinyl. I got my first cassette player as a kid. It was a Norelco Carrycorder 150:
If you recall, the 8 track was invented by Bill Lear of Learjet fame for use in aircraft. My parents had one and I purchased some tapes. I have distinct memory of when the "ka-chunk" of when head changes occurred mid-track on a Santana album. :)
Ah yes. That "ka-chunk" sound. I wonder if it was even noticeable in a loud jet. I actually had an 8-Track player in my bedroom as a kid. It was wired to 12V and a couple speakers. I ran that for a short while before I got my 'real' stereo.
