With the resurgence of vinyl what are the chances of 8 track making a return?

Hopefully zero, but one cannot deny the propensity of people to embrace nostalgia even if it is inferior.

More hipster hype. That said I've heard some pretty nice digital transfers of  8 track tapes.  Often they had bonus tracks or versions not released on other formats. Stones 'Miss You' being one  example.

I wasn't aware of that.  What was the bonus on the Stones "Miss You" (and are your referring to the Some Girls album, or a 8-track single of "Miss You")?

It was the Some Girls album. From memory maybe a Canadian release (?) in any event the Miss You version was an extended one.

I love the detail they put into the unit they are showing, right down to the 5-pin DIN on the back for input/output.
