Space: 1999 Ad

Another Captain Company ad from the back of Vampirella, this time for the exciting grey world of Space: 1999!



Just a heads up, as of today the Power Records blog is going to be taking a little vacation. When I restarted this back in August 2014, I had no idea there was still so much related content to find. But now the well has gone dry a little bit again, so I'm going to take some time to work on some other projects and hopefully find more interesting Power Records obscura. Thanks to everyone who's been following along, and we'll see you soon!

Themes From The Movies


Okay, I admit, this one is really far afield of this blog's mission statement, but when Power Pal Rockwell Jay Pugglesworth sent it to me I couldn't resist--it looks so fun! I mean, where else are you going to see these five fine examples of 1970s cinema all in one place? I mean, who doesn't remember the stirring theme from The Deep?

Clearly, the sleeve art was done in-house, since it has that...er, loose style that we've come to associate with Peter Pan's art department. This record gives us an idea what a book-and-record set of these movies might have looked like, which is a major tease: just imagine how cool a series of James Bond Power Records could have been!

Also--I've never understood the byzantine nature of music publishing, but how could PP release an album with the Star Wars theme on it when they clearly didn't have the license?

Wonder Woman Ad


For some reason, the DC and Marvel records never got advertised all that much in the Warren mags (at least compared to some of the other licenses), so this Wonder Woman offering from Eerie #95 jumped out at me. I'm not familiar with that other LP, but it sure looks like fun!

Six Million Dollar Man Ad


This full page ad ran in the back of Vampirella #86, and as you can see it's almost entirely made up of old time radio serial stuff put on to vinyl...except, right at the bottom there, is a Six Million Dollar Man LP.

The problem is, someone at Captain Company(?) swapped out the original cover art for this generic photo of Steve Austin, so I can't tell if this is one of the Power Records or some other piece of licensed merch! I've never seen any other Six Million Dollar Man LPs, so I think it's a safe bet that it's a Power Record. But of course you never know...

(On another note: how is it that Power Records didn't nab the Godzilla license, leaving it open to another label? Every time I see that LP, I have to remind myself it's not from Peter Pan!)
