Way Out Junk: Popeye the Sailor Man and His Friends
Wow! I just discovered another cool blog with TONS of oddball, long-out-of-print music downloads, and the first thing I see is this crazy Popeye record! Click on the record cover to get to the download page!
These records are like radio cartoons; Full cast and original soundtrack music and storylines created just for these records. Remember those? It's like animation for the blind.
He's also got this Rocky and Friends LP to download, and many more like Quick Draw McGraw and Huckleberry Hound!
When you check out this website, look around cause there's a lot of unusual tunes to add to your collection of eclectica. Oh, I'm tellin' ya --
DIG through the archives on this site because there is WAY too much stuff to hint at here!
Go see for yourself!
Click on the records to find the goodies!
Each one of these records will take you to a different blog post on the "Way Out Junk" blog.
If there's more than one download link on the page, I recommend clicking on the second link of the set. When I tried to download these, sometimes one of the links was dead. But there was always an alternate link that did the job.
Get these while they last!
By the way, these are for the most part original cast members like June Foray, Bill Scott and Paul Frees (Rocky and Friends), Jack Mercer and Mae Questel (Popeye and Olive Oyl) doing the songs and stories on these records. This is primo stuff!
PS: There's even more of this kind vinyl cartoon rarities at WFMU and at a wonderful site about old kids' records called Kiddie Records. Isn't the internet great?
