In 1989 Tom Petty released Full Moon Fever. This was still in the transition days from cassettes to CDs. Albums still existed, but they were sliding fast. Mr Petty acknowledged this change with a statement on the CD at the end of side 1 of the album configuration. It was funny to hear it then on a CD, but even funnier to hear it almost 30 years later playing through my Amazon Echo.
Hello CD Listeners
We’ve come to the point in this album where those listening on cassette (or records) will have to stand up (or sit down) and turn over the record (or tape). In fairness to those listeners, we’ll now take a few seconds before we begin side two.
Thank you. Here’s side two.
