Can I Get This on Cassette Tape?

8 Track Shack sells cassette tapes to numerous inmates and residents at prisons, state hospitals, correctional facilities, etc. across the country.

Currently we’ve got about 50 copies of Freddy Fender’s Before the Next Teardop Falls in our online inventory and cataloged….and dozens more in boxes of commons carts. So it’s nice when we come across some more scarce albums, albums that didn’t sell in the millions, have limited appeal and might be far outside the mainstream. Below you’ll see some of these […]
