PLEASE NOTE: As this item has been obtained overseas, there is a possibility that the tape may have become loose from the spool in transit.
If you choose our service option, we would check this and correct the issue for you.
If you purchase directly and do not check the tape inside before playback, you will risk damaging the tape and no refund will be available.

All 8 tracks are pre-loved (used) and are sold “as is”.

We do offer a “service cart” option or you can add additional spare parts if you wish to service the cart yourself.

It is highly recommended that all 8 tracks have replacement pads, a new foil splice and internal cleaning done before use.

The foam pads inside are very old (over 40 years) and would have deteriorated, even if the cart is sealed and has never been used. can not be held responsible if the tape or player become damaged if this procedure is not carried out on your 8 track tape purchase.

Al Stewart’s sixth studio album, Past, Present & Future, is a concept album that explores the themes of history, time, and fate. The album is divided into three sections: “Past”, “Present”, and “Future”, and each section contains songs that explore a different aspect of the theme.

The “Past” section includes songs such as “Old Admirals”, “The Year of the Cat”, and “Roads to Moscow”. These songs tell stories of historical figures and events, and they often reflect on the passage of time and the inevitability of change.

The “Present” section includes songs such as “Soho (Needless to Say)” and “Time Passages”. These songs are more personal in nature, and they explore the themes of love, loss, and uncertainty.

The “Future” section includes songs such as “Nostradamus” and “The Way of the World”. These songs are more speculative in nature, and they explore the possibilities of the future and the role of human beings in shaping it.

Past, Present & Future is a beautifully crafted album that is both musically and lyrically impressive. Stewart’s songs are full of rich imagery and symbolism, and they offer a unique perspective on the human experience. The album is a must-listen for fans of folk rock, concept albums, and thoughtful songwriting.
