Twittering Machines reader Robert Browne recently sent me a very interesting and thought-provoking email (this being one of many from Robert):
The attached image is of one of my childhood favorite pieces of vinyl. It’s Rocky Jones, Space Ranger – Shipwrecked on Planet X. Found it on an internet search. Originally 78 rpm it’s only 6:31 long. My copy is long gone but I remember it well.
Perhaps a piece in Twittering Machines on childhood vinyl memories would be a nice addition?
I think this is a wonderful idea and I love Robert’s inaugural entry. Please share your childhood vinyl memories by sending me an email with the record title, a description and anything you’d like to say about it and I’ll post it here as part of the Childhood Vinyl Memories series.
Here’s some more from Robert:
I think the Rocky Jones record came to me due to my father’s interest in Sci-Fi writing. My early musical memories via my father were Coleman Hawkins (he owned just about every recording the Hawk played on), Prez Prado and Raymond Scott.
Rocket ships, cocktails, jazz and mambo! Sounds like a great childhood and a great adulthood. Thanks Robert!
