I can understand bringing back the vinyl record format, simply because so many people claim that vinyl has a fuller sound, with higher frequencies and lower lows. I'd love to hear feedback from forum members here who hold that view. But what I don't understand is... WHY DID THEY RESURRECT THE CASSETTE TAPE? In my opinion, it's a very flawed format that I was glad to see dead and buried. Does anyone else remember painstakingly rewinding, by hand, the cassette tapes that had been "eaten" by your cassette player? You seemingly had miles of tape to wind back in without tangling it up. Sometimes you were successful, but the tape never sounded quite the same because of the wrinkles that occurred during the rewinding. Grrrr... and back then I was a real stoner, and rewinding the tape was a real buzz-kill.
What's next? Re-introducing the 8-track tape?
Yeah, I feel the same way as you do about cassette tapes. I know of a few labels and musicians that have done this but I don't get it at all. I get the appeal of vinyl even though I don't have an old record player but cassette tapes should stay in the past.
