Snow White Cassette Tape

I don't usually look though the cassette tapes at thrift shops, but this one was sitting on the shelve in such a way that it caught my eye while I was walking by. This purchase was a no brainer as cassette tapes in this store are usually 10 cents, and everything in the store was 50% off this day, so I ended up paying 5 cents for this tape.
This particular cassette tape is the soundtrack from Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and is from 1985, manufactured and distributed by Disneyland/Vista Records and Tapes, Burbank, CA.
Back when cassette tapes were a popular format, I never bought them. I was always an LP buyer. I also never bought 8-Tracks, although I remember having a friend who had an 8-Track payer in his car and I always laughed them a song would stop in the middle while the 8-Track changed tracks! No wonder that format failed.

It's kinda strange, as it is one of only 2 or 3 Disney cassette tapes I have ever found at a thrift shop. Being as there was a point where tapes were are popular as vinyl, you would think they would show up more in used shops. But then again, I never liked tapes as they seemed to wear out to easily and possibly they didn't stand up to time as nicely as vinyl albums have.
