A 8 Track documentary on DVD (who would of thunk of it?!)

From the folks who digitaly brought you 'The 70's Dimension' DVD, comes 'So Wrong They're Right'!:

So Wrong They're Right
by Russ Forster

SO WRONG THEY'RE RIGHT chronicles a 10,000 mile journey around the U.S. in search of “trackers” – fanatical collectors of 8-Track tapes, those funky clunky pre-recorded plastic cartridges from the 70s. Russ Forster and Dan Sutherland capture over 20 interviews, brimming with reminiscences, rants, political diatribes, fantasies, fix-it tips, sales pitches, and everything else that defines the skeptical yet inquisitive mind of the 8-Track enthusiast. More than a film about pop-music nostalgia, it serves as a statement of outrage from a population of consumers who are tired of being told what to consume.

"A deadpan tribute to people who refuse to consider the past as passed.” – Wired Magazine

"A forum to celebrate 8-track culture: the candy-colored Panasonic players, the KACHUNK sound of putting the tape into the player, hunting down a treasured copy of the Sex Pistols' ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’…" – Boston Herald

As an VHS owner of this set, I can't recommend this set highly enough. A brilliant 90's view of the 70's. Let's see That 70's Show can beat this!!
