Eight Track Museum
The world's first museum of eight track tapes, and Dallas' first known music museum, will feature an extensive collection of rare and unusual eight track tapes assembled over a 20-year period by Bucks Burnett, the Dallas Earotica Music store owner and music producer.
700-square feet museum will house over 3,000 eight tracks, including
a giant replica of Lou Reed's Metal
Machine Music eight track, 500 sealed eight tracks by The Rutles (with the
original shipping cartons), a three-pack eight track box set of recordings by
The Beatles, and 30 sealed eight tracks by Elvis Presley (in their original
RCA shipping carton). Also found in the permanent collection of the museum will
be the complete eight track tape discographies of Led Zeppelin and Grand Funk,
as well as partial collections of many more artists. In addition, rare and
signed eight tracks will be on display, including a Led Zeppelin eight track
signed by the three surviving members of the band, as well as tapes signed by
legendary underground cartoonist Robert Crumb.
The museum is housed inside the Deep Ellum Foundation building.
