ROLL UP, ROLL UP - FF FREEBIE...



You'll remember me wittering on about POWER RECORDS
recently, and their Comicbook and record set of The FANTASTIC
FOUR #126 ("The WAY It BEGAN!")  Well, rather than wear out
the record by playing it, I transferred the audio on to my computer and
thence to CD.  I even copied the record label to provide one for the
disc, and I'm well-chuffed with it.

Now, here's the good news (maybe).  I did a few trial and error
runs on getting the label just as I wanted it and therefore have excess
copies of the disc - around ten or so.  If you'd like a free copy, just leave
your name and address in the comments section - don't worry, I won't
publish them - and I'll send you a copy at my own expense.  Also, your
details won't be passed on to anyone and will be deleted from my
files once I've addressed the jiffy bag.

The disc contains two versions of the record - the original one,
plus one with the page bleeps edited out (no gaps) so that it sounds
like a radio play.  If you've bought the mag, but have long-since lost the
record, here's a chance to replace it with a brand-spanking new CD.  It's
also been processed to reduce the record crackle, so it probably sounds
better than you've ever heard it before.  So, it really is that simple - if
you want a copy, just let me know.  Remember  'though - it's
first come, first served, so better be quick!

******

Only three takers so far.  There really is no catch.  To reiterate -
your name and address won't be used for any other purpose, won't
be shared or passed on to any other parties, and won't be stored by
me for future use in relation to anything else.  I delete the info right
after I address the envelope.  You have nothing to lose.

UPDATE:  Offer now closed, alas.

Recall Power Records having put out one of those spooky sound effects LP's you'd play on Halloween around here. Though I'm sure I said this before, they were one of the many label names of a company called "Synthetic Plastics", one of the other familiar labels was Peter Pan Records. Those records were common in my childhood.

I've got a spooky Hallowe'en CD somewhere, Chris, but I can't recall who made it. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

Kid said...

Corey, I'll post it on Wednesday. Can't say when it'll arrive, 'though I'll send it Air Mail if it's not too expensive.

Colin Jones said...

This is very generous of you, Kid - and to think that some people call you a troll ;)

Kid said...

Nobody of an enlightened outlook, Col, I'm sure. Only people who can't bear to be disagreed with.

Kid said...

Doc V, I'm not sure what you mean by a digital copy - how would I send that?

Christopher Sobieniak said...

Does he mean mp3?

Kid said...

Dunno, Chris, but I wouldn't know where to start with that anyway.

Christopher Sobieniak said...

Then I guess you don't haveone of those fancy USB turntables that can rip records OK.

Kid said...

I can record a record from my turntable onto my computer, Chris - that's how I made the single into a CD to start with.

Kid said...

Still a few left, Andrew B. Will send it out on Wednesday.

Yup, I did indeed mean an mp3. I've got one of those USB turntables and that's what I have been using to record my oddball records.
