Here's one of those home recorded discs of a child's visit with Santa Claus. It's got a great sleeve, but unfortunately someone peeled the label off of the record itself.
The way i imagine it is that there was a booth just like there is nowadays with a guy in a red suit and a long line full of of impatient kids. Only back in these days you got a record to take home (for a price, i'm sure) instead of a Polaroid (i'm old) or whatever chintzy thing they do today.
The 'skip' at the very very end isn't a skip at all, the record ends with a locked groove. So i let it play a few times through so you, the listener, could get the full effect of the weirdness... I'm assuming that these were hastily recorded, and well, shit happens. What a way to end an otherwise mediocre recording though... Santa will creepily laugh at you until you fall asleep... Sweet dreams!
If young Margaret of Foster avenue is still with us, she'd be in her early 60s now.
DivShare (my usual onscreen player) is on the blink at the moment. Until they get their shit together and fix whatever it is that they have to fix, i'll be using this freebie one.
