  • Radio spot records

    Not sure what they're called, records from the 70's that advertise new films with an awesome presenter voice + music and dialogue bits from the film. There was a comp of blaxploitation ones a few years ago. This one for Taxi Driver looks incredible. If there are some with this below narrator I'm gonna get in foetus position...!

    I have one called "The Collectors" which - understandably - got used on a VG+ mix ...

    Not a clue about the film..!
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

      These are pretty cool! Never seen one, but here's a BIN for Death Wish!!
      Spirit Duplicator—collectable, charming, affordable... and also socially networked on FB / Twitter / Instagram.

        I don't have any 45s, but I do have an LP called "The Wild Wild World Of Mondo Movies Music" which has a bunch of such announcements for exploito films. Including this Syd Dale propelled spot:

            I have a fair few, including one for Taxi Driver, although I'm not sure it's exactly the same as that pictured.

            This one for The Corpse Grinders, The Undertaker And His Pals, and The Embalmer is nice to have.

            I also have one for The Hot Box (strictly un-PC and NSFW) that is prime mixtape fodder.

            The one I'm most curious about, though, is for a film called The Specialist, on CIP. The radio spot 45 includes the title track, sung by Lou Rawls, which is rather fine and, as far as I'm aware isn't available anywhere else (apart from the VG+ swap, 2012, in case you're interested to hear it ).
