Originally published by Marvel in the late 1970′s, ‘Frankenstein’ was one of six books in a set that aimed to “re-tell” classic stories through comic-style graphic novels. In the early 80′s, legendary toy maker Fisher-Price re-published the comics, including fully produced audio recordings featuring voice actors, sound effects, and music that would guide you through the books. A “read-along” at first, most kids, including myself, eventually ditched the books and listened to the stories on tape. Over…and over. The magical thing that Fisher-Price accomplished with these now-extremely hard to find recordings was the depth and level of production quality they put into them.
This recording was a little tricky as my cassette tape has degraded badly over the years. Several times during recording, the audio would drop out, requiring physical “jiggling” and literal slaps to the Walkman for the audio to level out. I had to stop several times and rewind, as some parts were completely inaudible. After all this, I think we have here a pretty good transfer of this classic tape, and hopefully I’ve managed to preserve a piece of OUR childhood for the next generation! -Cheers (P.S. – Please LIKE us on Facebook!)
