I love the vintage illustrations on this sound effects record!

It’s got all the usual sounds and scenes you can find on many sound effect record from the sixties and seventies. This record wasn’t meant for filmmakers or DJ’s though: “These staged demonstrations, some provided for humorous relief, illustrate how vividly a picture can be created through the art of stereophonic recording.” …at least, that’s what it says on the back!
Some of the included scenes: Stereo Balancing Test, Racing Sounds, Thunder and Lightning, Bowling, Fire Engine and Traffic, Harbor Scene, Shooting, Ping Pong Match and Trains.

Here’s some samples:

And here’s the complete record (25mb).

I’ve got the same record. Was thinking of giving it to you but seems like I can keep it. Cool cover indeed.
