Samuel Freeman… Memories had a 8 track player on my disco deck was hard to get the tapes sometime but sounded great through speakers

Alan Esdaile… they were good for cars and vans.

Colin Norton… I  still have some and a player in my garage 🙂

Madeline Joyce Morton… I drove in to a brick wall, changing mine in the car lol

Roy Penfold… What about the healthy ‘clunk’ as you changed tracks?

Alan Pepper… Mate of mine had one I remember listening to the latest Elton John album on it Caribou ? I remember another guy I worked with had an actual record player inbuilt in his car in the early 60s !!

Tony Davis… I had one in my car and I remember that the Yes Album with Yours Is No Disgrace sounded fantastic. They seemed to be much better sound quality than cassettes.

Alan Esdaile… I can’t believe they sold any of these?

Will Cornell… Correction: 8Ts were, at best, second to LPs as far as sales volume at least here in the US where apparently they took hold more than in other markets. And Alas, the 8T Museum owned by Bucks Burnett here in Dallas, has closed it’s doors. Landlord had plans for the building and tenants had to vacate. It was fun while it lasted.

Keith Veness… Yes in my Ford Cortina 1600 GT

Josie Lawson… I used to have a machine that held those sort of tapes back in 70s…my cousin gave me it. I don’t have now…

Sandi Carlyon… I did. Had a Bread one.

Christina Prentice… Oh my god…haven’t used those since I worked in the Wimpy in Queens Road when I was at school!!!!!

Steve Fox… We just bought a player for our retro car! £15 well spent.

Nick Prince… I had an 8 track player in my first car….

Rob Grain… One player in my Mk3 Cortina 2 litre GXL ( Daytona Yellow with black vinyl of course) and one indoors in my stereo rack. Roxy Music “For Your Pleasure” used to change tracks halfway through The Bogus Man.
