Roll down the windows and blast the stereo!
8-track was designed to play back the popular music of the mid-60’s to the late 70’s. Using the same size of magnetic tape as reel-to-reels, 8-tracks produced high fidelity music that was portable for the first time ever.
By simplifying reel-to-reels to a small tape cartridge, 8-track became popular because they were easy to listen to on the go. 8-track players were standard in cars of the era, and were the format of choice until the standard cassette was introduced.
Due to the cartridge design, 8-tracks were prone to breakage. The tape material used was not meant to last longer than 20 years, and the separate tracks could easily get jammed and stop playback.
