Data Age Mindscape FlexiDisc - Woah! Trippy man!

Recommended Posts

Here is one for you all! 

 

I sold one of those a few years back for $15 on GameGavel and I still kept one for myself. Here is some interesting info as well a s a link to the MP3 ! Description from their archives:
 
Mindscape by Data Age was a cardboard record that could be obtained directly from the company (who in turn is fairly notorious for a bunch of crummy Atari 2600 games). Their earliest games are particularly bad, and this dramatization of them only amplifies that. "Got... to.... find... the... 
HATCH KEY!" It's campy fun!  The record was created by Craig Hundley, who wrote the electronic music for the movies Star Trek II, The Black Hole, Firefox, and MegaForce.  Hundley also created audio effects for Bruce Springsteen and John Lennon.  A picture of Hundley can be found in the Nov. 1983 issue of Electronic Fun with Computers & Games magazine.
 
Publisher: Data Age
 
Scarcity: 7
 
$25 (L)oose or ©omplete: L
 
Description: A seriously psychedelic videogame record that was available through Data Age. Plugging their products with hammy actors and actresses, you might get an idea of what the games were about, but certainly not their poor quality. Classic line from this record: "The hatch key....got...to...find...the hatch key". Collector's: don't go looking in the 45 RPM section for this one - it's on a flexi-disc with cardboard backing, like the kinds you used to get in cereal boxes in the 70's.

I remember getting a square 45 in a Mad magazine , 

 

I believe they did a couple, it may of been "It's a Super Spectacular Day" where the song starts out nice and happy but always ends with some horrible turn of events, the record could play several different random endings, I loved that thing. I recall some of the lyrics "All the bells are ringing and the birds are signing as he sits on your window sil......UNTIL.........."
