Imagination promotional booklet.

Youll notice a few strange scans, as if these were added double. Not true. The 3rd / 4th and 17th / 18th page are transparant.

Yeah, I posted in Concerts...  the limit is 10 GB per month. Not certain if that means 10 new GB every month or total. Anyway, the current pics are "supposed" to come back live on the 16th, which is Monday, so we'll see.  If the 10 GB is total, then I need to find another free storage site. Suggestions?  

weird, cuz I checked my account there after the last upload and I was still short of their limit; probably a lag in their updating my account.  Too bad, I was planning on some more stuff today...

Such as? 
Tinypic is owned and operated by Photobucket( where I hangs my hat) Suppose I can try using it and see if that upsets the cart; but I don't want to lose all the pics I have on the bucket...

if you google search terms such as "sharing pictures" or "uploading pictures" you'll get a whole bunch of websites that offer this service. One might have to take a membership for some of them. I just picked the first one for which that wasn't necessary.

The Making of Holland book. Back in early '73 there was a stack of them on the front counter at Record Facory. Or was it Tower, I don't remember. I asked the guy if they were freebies - he said, "Yeah, take one"!  So I grabbed a handful and he didn't say anything. I shoulda grabbed the whole stack of them!

Tower Records had a huge box of free Holland books next to the exit at the front door.  I only took two, convinced that I needed to leave the rest of them for others to discover that The Beach Boys were still making great music in 1973.

and what the heck! while I'm doing "odds and ends" here's an invitation to a 1965 press conference, AND, while I realize they're not promotional( when has taking a thread in a different direction ever been a problem on this board) here are one side each of the BBs three pocket discs ( there's a 4th disc which is a promo only, but it doesn't have "labels"; Brian talks on one side, with a cut by Mama Cass and Tiny Tim is on the other. "Put Me In Your Pocket"): 



No telling what I'll find in these boxes...

Wow, the Beach Boys on Pocket Discs.  I had totally forgotten about that format.  Basically a smaller and round implementation of the usually square shaped Eva Tone Flexi Discs that could be sent in the mail and were sometimes bound into magazines like Mad.

I recall seeing Pocket Discs around somewhere back in the day, but where were they sold?  And what did they cost?  Seems like some Pocket Discs may have even been freebies somewhere, like in a cereal box.  I do recall that such discs had a ton of surface noise when you played them. 

First bgas posts photos of the BBs on PlayTapes, and now Pocket Discs.  Could there possibly be some other rare format that BB stuff was released on?  As far as more modern but defunct formats are concerned, I don't recall the BBs were ever being released on DAT or MiniDisc, which probably means that bgas has a bunch of such releases in his collection.

Thanxx!  Wish there was some other formats, cuz I'd sure like to have them...  They did make it to Minidisc with The Absolute Best Vol. 1:

Hah!  I should have known you'd probably have a BBs MiniDisc or DAT, even though I rather doubted any had ever been made.  (DAT and MD are/were both great digital recording formats.  But I only bought blank tapes/discs for both formats, although a Springsteen MiniDisc came with one of my MD recorders and a Colors of Jazz six pack came with one of my DAT recorders.)

Getting back to the Pocket Discs, do you have any idea where were they sold and how much they cost?   They were probably considerably more popular than prerecorded MDs or DATs (which isn't necessarily saying much from a sales standpoint) and did have the advantage of being able to play them on a regular record player, but I'm still thinking that not many of them were sold.  Had PlayTapes disappeared from the market when Pocket Discs were introduced, or was there an overlap of both formats being available at the same time?

All good questions, of which I mostly don't know. The Pocket discs were available via Americom( the manufacturer) vending machines and came in a generic Pocket Disc sleeve. The sleeves are somewhat rare also( I don't have any) as they were simple covers without writing, other than maybe the manufacturer's name, so most were  evidently trashed.  I think Playtapes and Pocket discs were available at the same time.
 Huh! Here's probably all you need to know about Pocket discs( except for all the BBs listings):  http://www.rarebeatles.com/photospg/flexiad.htm
  I take that back; THIS is really cool!     http://wn.com/1969_Americom_ABC_Records_Music_Swinger_Pocket_Disc_Record_Player   
 Be really neat to find one of these babies...

The American Band docu was not only released on video (and later on DVD), but also on Laserdisc.

Its one CD and a round paper inlay. And to be exact: this isnt a promo item. The frisbee + CD was on sale at TCHIBO coffee shops in Germany.

A coffee shop. No wonder we haven't seen them in the U.S. Starbucks should put something out like this. Here's what they looked like bagged:
