8-track tapes:

Mom had a few, and so did dad. She gravitated more towards Helen Reddy, while he was more of a Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot fan. I never understood why they only held 8 songs (8 tracks), because these things were so damn big you think they could have squeezed in one or two more songs on them.. I can still remember riding in dad's car and listening to Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind".
