Syd Barrett Madcap Laughs & Barrett 8 Track Tape!

Check out this Madcap Laughs & Barrett double 8 track cassette. Wow. I wonder if the mix is different on this? Back in the day, the record companies used to cram two LPs on one 8 track and sell it. I suppose to make up for the inferior packaging and mechanism.

Ahhhh, but the lowly 8 track tape is getting a spiffing up of its reputation these days. Frequently, 8 tracks contained different mixes than the LPs. All of the 13th Floor Elevators albums sported completely different mixes than their LP counterparts.

Pink Floyd issues a quadraphonic mixes on 8 track of their Atom Heart Mother, Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here albums. The 8 track issue of Animals includes a long version of Pigs on the Wing with a guitar solo by Snowy White. Some issues of this 8-track tape have square labels on each side, while other issues have a single label that wraps around both sides.
