Do We Need An Eight-Track Museum?

Got any eight-tracks in your basement? James "Bucks" Burnett, the former manager of Tiny Tim, might like to them for a museum. Burnett used to own a record store and after two successful temporary exhibits thinks it’s time that the much-maligned cartridges return to a place of glory. "There are certainly lesser topics that have museums," Burnett tells The Wall Street Journal. The eight-track saw its prime in the mid-1970s but fell in popularity to the tape cassette. It remains prized by some listeners. The 1970s band Cheap Trick ordered a bunch for a new album last year, only to find themselves ordering three batches to please fans.
