Great Post OP! Thank you.
Thanks for sharing this, Cyberman. Going to download these so I can listen whilst driving on Euro Truck Simulator 2 (strong)
I was introduced to this when I found one of the re-issued (non-DJ voiced) double vinyls in the Amazon Warehouse for almost pennies. Loved the selection and went on to find the box-set of the CDs (also, as in OPs description, non-DJ voiced) and bought some more vinyl but at full price as the reissues are mastered quite well given the age of the source material. As part of the original Amazon purchase I got their digital download which turned out to be the DJ-voiced version of the same year album, but the original. Odd, but hey. Recommended, in either this free download format or if you can get the reissued CDs/vinyl at reasonable prices. Edit:It's worth noting that the "new" stuff is under the name of "The Cruisin' Story" as opposed to just plain "Cruisin'"
The word cruisin' doesn't appear in the dictionary, but it's a familiar word to millions of people who did it??? clearly don't know any LGBTQ+ friends lol
If you love radio this set is amazing! Most are recreations of classic radio shows but done really well with original DJs, jingles, adverts and music. The 1970 edition however is an actual recording of a real show. All are excellent but check out The weird beard, B Mitchell Reed, and Robert W Morgan shows first to hear just how good radio can be!
