Cheap Trick 8-Track Not So Cheap
I honestly had no idea that Cheap Trick, which was already past its heyday and was playing small venues like Jacksonville State University twenty years ago (indeed, my ROTC Rangers detachment worked security and setup for the show) was still around. It seems they’ve actually put out three albums this decade. Who knew?
While the labels stopped issuing 8-tracks more than twenty years ago (Wikipedia says Fleetwood Mac’s “Greatest Hits” in November 1988 was the last by a major label) limited releases as a gimmick are more common than I’d realized; which is to say, they exist.
