Description

Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. 8 track tape cartridge for the album Jazz by Queen.

About this copy: This copy of Jazz is a sealed U.S. 8 track tape on the Elektra label.  The wrap is fully intact and the tape is presumably new and unplayed.

There is a small cut in the end of the cartridge indicating that the tape was sold as a cutout.

A nice copy of a great Queen item.

Background: Jazz was the seventh studio album by Queen, and the multi-platinum album reached #2 on the UK album chart and #6 in the U.S., helped by the single “Bicycle Race/Fat Bottomed Girls.”

Allmusic.com gave Jazz a 4 star review:

Famously tagged as “fascist” in a Rolling Stone review printed at the time of its 1978 release, Jazz does indeed showcase a band that does thrive upon its power, thrilling upon the hold that it has on its audience. That confidence, that self-intoxication, was hinted at on News of the World but it takes full flower here, and that assurance acts as a cohesive device, turning this into one of Queen’s sleekest albums. … May and Mercury have an unspoken competition on who can overdub the most onto a particular track, while Roger Taylor steers them toward their first disco song in the gloriously dumb “Fun It.” But since over-the-top campiness has always been an attribute in Queen, this kind of grand-scale exaggeration gives Jazz a sense of ridiculousness that makes it more fun than many of their other albums.
