Regular Cartridges


The first 5 releases originally came in a clam shell plastic case but
starting with "Head" they switched to a cardboard slipcover.

Recently however (December '17) cardboard slipcover cases
came up for sale on ebay for both Headquarters and Pisces.
The best we (Ed Reilly and I) can figure is that when Colgems updated
the LPs and singles in late '69, they may have also reissued these first five 8-tracks.

It's also quite likely these were sold through the
RCA Stereo 8 Tape Club, as the tapes are exactly the same as the originals
with only the cases being different.

However they were brought to the market,
it's really amazing that in 50 years of looking
the larger collecting community did not know these existed.
