i dont think anyone really bought the walkman they just voted hot because they are old now lol so im guessing they would also votes this hot becuase it reminds them of how they use to push both the play and rec button? ( aint taking the mick lol i had the slim ones, that used rechargeable lithium batterys

Great price , voting hot but not ordering till i know play will honour my order for the crazy sony walkman megadeal.

I think the first CD came out in the late 80's

MP3/4 was just a pipe dream away

You may be in the 70s, but so were cassettes.
I gave all mine away more than 10 years ago.
And I hadn't used them in nearly 10 years before that !

Marginally better than being stuck in the 90's I suppose!

My dad told me about these......

These ain't a patch on my BASF chromdioxid (CR-II) tapes.
I still play The Jam's 'Sound Affects' on one and it still sounds great 30 years on.:D

Good, i recently replaced my old A-TRAC player in my cortina

On the contrary - I half stepped out of the 80s and into the 90s and then ran out of feet. The 90s were the best!

Reminds me of an ’80s slogan I’m reminded of: [color=darkblue]“Home Taping Is Skill In Music”[/color]

You can get 3 Maxell 60 mins tapes in Poundland for you know how much.

Not voted.

That would be 'Eight Track'

If you want cassettes you can have some of mine - I have loads with no use for them.

AAAAAh

remember the days double tape recorders with speed button where you can reduce the amount of time during copying

Made the Rock music sound even better

Very sadly I am in the process of transfering my mix tapes (recordings of the top 40) into MP3 format. Even sadder I am leaving in all the bad edits. Priceless Tommy Vance(and his leather pants) sound bites though!

Wasn't it illegal to drive a Cortina without an 8 track fitted...

Was it an Amstrad by any chance?
God I thought mine was the bee's knee's.In reality it was s***e
Glory days indeed.

When i was about 19/20 i had one of those massive ghetto blasters, Hitachi i think. Radio & Twin tape with Dolby. Bass, super bass, and xtra super bass. Graphic equaliser and had led lights that would pulse up a sliding scale with the music.... kicked out around 60 watts. Would take 8 or 10 D Cell batteries that would only last about an hour. The sound quality was awesome on them, but it did cost me about months wages at the time.

This is the future!!!

Was 30 years ago when the first proper album was pressed.

30 years next year since the first commercial CD album releases, as it was early 1982 if my memory serves. Which it often doesn't.

The first ever CD manufactured was "The Visitors" by ABBA on 17th August 1982.

lol seeing as recording off the radio is just as illegal as downloading via torrent etc... then why go through the hassle when you can download? It's still free after all!
