I thought these were long gone…. But now, it looks like they’re making a comeback.
I’m talking about the cassette.
If you think back to the 80’s, it was the cassette that was killing vinyl. Then came CD’s and they killed both cassettes and vinyl.
Few years back, vinyl made a comeback – and now it’s the cassette’s turn.
A bunch of artists – including Kanye West and Justin Bieber – have started releasing new albums on cassette.
Sales have increased so much recently that the Recording Industry Association of America is trying to find a way to track tape purchases for the first time in 25 years.
I can’t see my self rushing out to buy a cassette player – it used to drive me crazy having to fast forward / rewind to find a song….and you never really knew where it was on the tape. Not to mention that joy of pulling a tape out of your stereo and finding that all the tape had come out of the cassette and it was totally ruined.
ok, just for fun – what was your favourite cassette tape??
