Re: The evolution of ""Jail"
We once threw one in a salt-water bay ---it was a Stones tape that had been played FAR TOO MANY TIMES. A few days later, it washed up on the beach in our yard. We threw it back in the player and it STILL PLAYED!!!....Joe P
The 8 track was so efficient. You could listen to two songs at once.......
Of course, one played backwards.
8 tracks! Haha! I remember coming home from Vietnam to a nice, brand new, fire engine red Ford Mustang Mach 1 which I bought through the Tokyo PX. I loved that car! And I had an eight-track player installed on a hump mount right behind the stick shift on the transmission hump. In fact, I think I still have some 8-track cassettes somewhere upstairs. I even think I have OUAT on 8-track! Thanks for bringing back memories.
I like you...did not buy the first "Best Of" LPs because I had all of the albums...but, I remember that the selling point of this album was that it included Jail.
In later years... I got all of the "Best of" albums...
The real.... bonus was... It was available on 8-Track
I believe I gave my copy of it to Jean Ward...
But, I still have my 8-Track of Once Up On A Time.
But, I gave my really nice super duper 8-Track player to someone who I met who was an 8-Track nut....
I've often wondered if my doing this was a mistake....
Vinyl is making a comeback...
Will 8-Track be next?
Who knows !!!!!!!!
