'audiOh! Transcription Series : Spoken Word LP's 1951 - 1980'
Audiofile Release : [audiOh!_24] 2008
sample:  Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats LP: [with Real Audio]
A personal collection of 28 sides of vinyl LP's simply transcribed to digital recorder, down in my shed.
Most of these belonged to my mother throughout her life time. Some are mine.
They are mostly Spoken Word LP's of Poetry read by the author, classic stories and comedy sketches, along with my
favourite soundtrack LP 'Flash Gordon'. This is one of the best at using dialogue and sound effects from the actual film,
which makes it a real soundtrack album in my opinion, and quite rare for it.
The tracks are low quality mono MP3's @ 96kbps. Perfectly acceptable for the material. Most of them were mono LP's in that era anyway.
This keeps the 10 hours of audio to a minimum size on your hard drive - 460Mb file
You can simply delete anything you don't like once you've heard it.
Most of the LP's [with the obvious exceptions] are hard to find on the internet.
So I am making the sound recordings available for the simple pleasure of sharing the historical culture of sound.
They are distributed as Public Domain recordings without profit. If you have a legitimate issue with that, then let me know and I'll change things.
Otherwise have a good time listening to sound that seems very distant, a lost art of talking, recording, and listening in this way. Particular to the era.
Released on my mothers birthday 2008. Given to her as her present to relive the memories from her personal past.
