One week from today, the Eight Track Museum opens here in Dallas.
As the music world continues on its inevitable march from physical media to digital files, a new museum runs counter to the trend. This will be the shrine to the now-extinct format that was popular in cars during the ’60s and early-’70s, before being overtaken by cassettes and then CDs. The online paper Examiner.com profiled owner Bucks Burnett, who said the shrine is an outgrowth of his used record store which also sold albums in that long-lost tape format. Now the eight-tracks are the center of attention — his displays include every Beatles album released on those 5-by 4-inch cartridges.
And he’s even found a few artists who will release new product in the format — include Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of Tom Tom Club. Truly a blast from the past!
Here’s the address: 3100 Main Street #414, Dallas, TX, 75226. The link to the Facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/pages/THE-EIGHT-TRACK-MUSEUM/157841843535
