[ARSCLIST] Special Offer on Book and Casette with RARE recordings
SPECIAL One-time sale of Historic Recordings on cassette.
I am posting this to various phonograph newsgroups as I want to get these
into the hands of those who will appreciate them. This is not a commercial
venture. I'm thinking the Archives who are members of ARSC might be interested in
this for their collections.
About 10 years ago, my late friend and fellow record collector, Dave
Goldenberg produced a fascinating and superb audiotape and booklet volume of early
recordings about Philadelphia, PA. You don’t need to live in Philadelphia to
appreciate its contents. There are some extremely rare recordings on the set.
21 tracks in all (see below).
The package is called :”Philadelphia All The Time: Sounds of The Quaker City
1896-1947”. It includes an 50-page ILLUSTRATED booklet with the history of
each recording. And the tape is Dolby encoded.
Dave was not into marketing and the package only had limited distribution,
which is a shame. I would like to get these in the hands of record collectors
who will appreciate the recordings and the great info in the booklet so I am
making them available to collectors on the record and phonograph collectors’
boards at a special closeout price. You don’t have to wait till the end for
the price but read on after it. The whole package originally sold for $16.00.
And I sold quite a few on ebay at $12.00 plus shipping.
In order to cover my time and packing and shipping, I will offer them at
only $5.00 postpaid by Media class mail. (That’s less than one cylinder record
and a bargain for the RARE recordings included.) But you must act fast!
The above price is for payment by cash or check. I’ll be happy to take
Paypal but I can’t afford to absorb the fee so The price will be $5.75 if you wish
to pay using Paypal. Also if you it sent FIRST class, I’ll do that for 35
cents more. (I know this sounds complicated, but, believe me, I’m not making
money on these additions.)
And if you are are out of the US, email me for price. (which will be
whatever extra charges there are for international postage.
Now see what you get.
