Why not buy it on CD then tape it?

That way you'll be able to make another tape when the first one wears out, as it surely will.

I don't have a cassette that's lasted longer longer than 2 years in the car. :roll:

Curtis,

Have you tried going to the store and asking if they have the tape version? Have you asked if you can order it from them? It's a brand new release, I'm sure they can get it for you. Of course, you'll have to go to store, so make sure your dad doesn't have the car.

You could also order it online from places like http://www.samgoody.com or http://www.circuitcity.com. Of course, that requires that you have a credit card.

What's interesting is that if you order it from http://www.samgoody.com, it's actually cheaper to get it on CD than it is to get it on tape. Don't Ask Me Why.

Here's the direct link (for the cassette) of the site Peter referred you to:

Actually, this is the link I was referring to. Your link doesn't work, unfortunately, elvis-fan. I don't think you can link directly to a cassette version, only to the general package. But there's a link to the cassette version on the page in my link (which should work). Of course, I'm sure Curtis can figure it out himself.

CASSETTE TAPES....

Are they still making those bad sounding things that used to get twisted up all over the place??!!! Why bother with 1980's "technonlogy" when vinyl or CD are so much nicer, better quality and longer lasting.

Hey Curtis you should buy a CD Player for your car, or use a Walkman type Cd Player with the cassette connection. Much better than tapes and you will keep value and quality with Cds better than tape.

:D

Vinyl was nice, but why transfer your vinyl stuff onto CDR unless it's something not available on CD?! If you just buy the CD, you save yourself the hassle and don't get all the scratches and you don't have to keep turning the things over after every 20 minutes!!! Only a few sad club DJ's (who think they are stars) bother with vinyl these days. God knows why, it's bulky and heavy. They will NEVER issue the FTD stuff on vinyl as most people have cd players and most of the FTD releases would have to go on two records and as only a few people would buy it, it would cost too much to do and buy. Get with it, man!

Vinyl is historically important and the pop culture product medium.

You will not see Elvis' cds on display at G'land - he had no cds! lol

Records are what Elvis himself purchased and played.

Many of ye already know I am a long-time supporter of vinyl being appreciated. I endorse and encourage collecting all of Elvis' RCA albums & singles in their original 331/3 and 45rpm releases. To own a mint copy of each of them is one of my collecting goals.

But as for cassette tape or 8-track tape.... that unraveling spool of crap is obsolete. I understand maybe having a back-up copy of each album/cd put on TDK 60 cassette for the car stereo or walkman but spend $ on factory-made cassette music product? Not since the 80s.


RELATED NOTE: I read a news blurb about the time capsule recently buried at the site of the imploded venue Elvis last played; they said they put in a cassette copy audience recording of Elvis' 6/26/77 Indy concert. Cassette??? Open that time capsule in 500 years, ain't nobody gonna have a cassette player ! lol
