9″ flexidisc, National Geographic Society, 1980
More outer space stuff – a felicitous mix of narration, sound effects and sympathetic synth burbles that sounds like the audio-visual soundtrack for a bunch of museum exhibits. It’s the only record we’ve come across (so far) where the Astronomy Consultant gets a namecheck, but the narrator and musicians do not.
Sound quality is a bit suspect, but that’s double-sided 25cm flexidiscs for you. I know, it’s a constant bugbear. Meanwhile, check out that natty op-art Bridget Riley-esque sleeve – remind you of anything?
