Heh - I've got Genesis' Foxtrot album on 8 track.  Might be a Sgt Pepper's album around here on 8 track, too....seems like I ran across that one a while back.

Tossed all my 8-Tracks years ago...

I had a Craig 8-Track recorder that I'd patch in between my guitar and amp. The preamp in that deck distorted very nicely when maxed out. :laugh: I think it went guitar > phono pre > eight track deck > amp... what a racket!

Hey, I was a poor, broke teenager makin' do with what I could lay hands on... :p

Metal Machine Music - on 8-track?  Phoo, don't ever get rid of that.  It is exactly what 8-track was made for.  

Plus in all seriousness it's probably a minor collector's item.  

Here's the original RS review!

If you ever decide to get rid of it, please give it to me...please... :)

Quite a review there.
Maybe it's good for sampling.

Nope, not good for sampling.  Not good for much of anything. :)

Very true. Lou Reed intended it to be totally useless to the record company, and he dang near succeeded in making an album TOTALLY useless to anyone except to folks that collect totally useless stuff many years later. Perfect for me. I've played it once. Really groovey man....once was enough.

No, I have no plans to get rid of it. It's one of my treasures, along with a Bulgarian Beatles album.

There's another album that's a close second, but I actually found this album pleasently inspiring...seriously. Yes, I have pretty strange tastes in music. I have the vinyl and casseette, but sadly no 8-track.

No Pussyfooting by Fripp and Eno

I really did enjoy this one with headphones in the dark. Don't need no drugs to get all trippy.

(think about it -- I like that thing but still can't handle rap)

Maybe it was a trash album to fulfil a record contract. Back then - it was
pretty cut-throat I understand. Had to put out so many albums in such and such
time.
