The Spectacular Rise & Fall of the Cassingle, 1988-1999…

May 28th, 2011

Digital Music News posted this chart.  It’s just too funny/random not to pass on.

“Hard to say which was more painful – the rise or the fall. Shipment stats courtesy of the RIAA.”

I don’t know why I find the whole “Cassingle” premise so amusing at this point. I guess I’m of the CD generation, although I definitely had the Tiffany and Kris Kross cassettes in my mini-backpack at all times in 1992.
