8-track tape is a magnetic tape sound recording technology.[1] It was a popular format for commercial audio recordings such as music albums from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, but eventually came to be considered obsolete, being replaced by the smaller, easier-to-use cassette tape (which, in turn, was replaced by the compact disc).[1]

Record Shop on Charing Cross Road in London bought used 8-tracks, as well as used 45s, cassettes, and CDs.[2]
