How about Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy 8 track?

I have tons of good tapes from when I was a member of Columbia House Club but this is one I do not have and it’s a must heave for me.

I am actually astonished that none are for sale here - and some of them sold for so cheap!!

https://www.discogs.com/Bill-Justis-...elease/4006585

I have one.
Mine has a black case, unlike the one you pictured, or what is pictured on discogs;
I'd trade it for a cassette version of the same soundtrack.

if you get it, and ship it to me, I will ship you this 8-track tape.

This way, I'm not making a penny...

I'm a tape guy.



awe crap! - scratch that!!

I just embarrassed myself again - because I just remembered that I already had these in one of my tape cases:



I also have them on LP

I just remembered as I was typing the suggestion of you getting that tape for me, and me giving you this 8-track in trade, of when I found this 8-track at an "antique store" I posted a picture on social media of having all three formats of the album.

You know you have a problem when you start to forget about some of the crap you have collected!!

I am pretty sure we have communicated offline.. let me see if I can find your contact information, and if we can work something out.

As a full disclaimer, I wouldn't play any 8-track tape you get unless you are willing to risk it - instead just use it for a fun display;
over time they wind increasingly tighter, and normally pop apart where the ends of the tape are attached.

I have gone through an embarrassing number of copies of 'Dark Side of the Moon', as well as other fantastic albums because they were in excess of fourty years old...
If you want to use your 8-track player buy one of those 8-track to tape adapters, or make one which is essentially a cassette (to cd player/phone/mp3 player) adapter with the head positioned just right;
That's what I ended up doing when I was regularly driving the '73 (which still has a working 8-track player btw).
I used to have a buddy who could fix 8-track tapes, it's not too hard, just tedious - that's why I made my 8-track adapter.
