If the turntable's surface is not completely flat, it is recommended that the flexi disc be placed on top of a full sized record. In Japan , starting in the early s, Asahi Sonorama published the monthly Asahi Sonorama magazine which included an inserted flexi disc "Sonosheet". Every year between and , The Beatles made a special Christmas recording which was made into a flexi disc and sent to members of their fan club.
While the earlier discs largely contained 'thank you' messages to their fans, the later Christmas flexis were used as an outlet for the Beatles to explore more experimental areas; the disc, for example, became a pastiche of a BBC Radio show and even included a specially recorded song entitled " Christmas Time Is Here Again.
In , the National Geographic Society released Song and Garden Birds of North America which included a sided clear flexidisk, bound alternating with pages giving the titles and birds on the recordings. The work was done by Arthur A. The recording has the sounds of the funeral procession to St.
Paul's, a hymn sung by the leaders of the world, and an excerpt of the funeral sermon. Excerpts from various recordings of Churchill's speeches are included.
The recording ends with bagpipes accompanying Churchill's coffin to the funeral barge on the Thames, as the public phase of the funeral ends. During the s, MAD magazine included Soundsheets in several special editions. The Summer edition of MAD Super Special published in featured "It's a Super-Spectacular Day", a song with eight different versions pressed into eight concentric grooves; which version was played depended on where the needle was dropped onto the disc.
Another issue included "It's a Gas", a song whose lyrics were belches. The disc contained excerpts from the Swedish group's recent concert appearance in Australia. A two-sided flexible sheet record of the songs of humpback whales produced by Roger Payne was included with the January issue of National Geographic Magazine.
With a production order of 10,, copies, it became the largest single press run of any record at the time. Computer magazines began to provide software in audio form " Vinyl Data " on flexi discs from June until While flexi-discs were usually just used as occasional giveaways, from to , Flexipop made a speciality of giving away such a disc with each edition.

Fields Of Gold.
She made me cry. I fell in love with her voice much the same way I fell in love with Adele when I heard Rolling in the Deep. Eva's voice left me speechless.
I Googled her and read everything I could about her. I listened to every recording that was available. I found out that her posthumously released recordings, including three UK number 1 records, have sold more than ten million copies world wide. This lady had an amazing gift; I'm sad that she's gone and so, so grateful that I have this album.
She had such a beautiful voice and is a great loss to the world. This is a terrific collection; some ballads, some jazz, and the classic, "Over the Rainbow" the reason I bought it. I first heard as background on a short video of the SR Blackbird, the fastest airplane ever built by former Blackbird pilot, Brian Shul.
I was stunned by the melody and wrote to Major Shul to find out who was singing it. He told me he heard it one the radio himself and was equally taken with it and wrote to her for permission to use it on his video. A perfect match. The graceful lines of the Blackbird at an amazing 90, feet and the pearlescent flow of Ms. Cassidy's voice together giving new meaning to this timeless classic.
Once I had the album I found I loved it all. She was a absolutely beautiful singer! And she passed too soon but left us her beautiful voice! Just a quick story on how I discovered her. My dear friend told me her best friend of 35 years died suddenly at 58 years old. My friend was going up to Seattle to perform her memorial and as her friend loved Eva Cassidy they would be playing her music at the memorial. As she told me the story she went online and we listened to a YouTube performance and i was blown away.
A must for those who love beautiful singers. This album was recommended to me when I lost my only brother and needed help getting through the nights and days there was a book that recommended grief processing and this was one of the albums discussed. So I got the album and still listen to it 9 years later. It's beautiful and Eva Cassidy is no longer alive so this is truly a gift. Love heals the wound love makes -- a brilliant paradox.
I first learned of Eva Cassidy -- how the UK found her years after her death; how the US learned of her from the UK -- from a "Nightline" program about her life, her music, and the growing, posthumous fame she didn't live to see even begin. What brought me back around to her music, even more years after her death, was a long overdue reacquaintance with the skating of Michelle Kwan, the most decorated figure skater in US history. Kwan, as a seven-years-old child, promised herself that she would win Olympic gold.
Her first chance was at thirteen, when she earned a spot on the US Olympic team second only to Tonya Harding. But she was relegated to alternate, behind Nancy Kerrigan, so could only watch as others did the skating for the gold.
Her next chance, at seventeen, was the Olympics. At twenty-one, four years later, in the Olympics, she missed winning the gold that even many of her rivals fervently wanted her to win, having to settle instead for bronze. Even so, the audience was already standing for her, in anticipation, before she was introduced or stepped onto the ice for her post-competition exhibition skate. And when she stepped onto the ice the ovation began. She took her position, the music began, and she gave a performance that would be both emotionally wrenching and sublime; both an extraordinarily difficult moment, and a performance for the ages -- "You'll remember me when the west wind moves among the fields of barley.
During these years, when asked her favorite skating program, Kwan answered without hesitation: "Fields of Gold". And she would be awarded a gold record by Eva's record company for doing so much with that program to make the world aware of Eva Cassidy, and her music for the ages. Regardless whether "anthology," or "compilation," or "sampler," this is a superb selection from several earlier LPs, as if planned as an LP in its own right.
It was the first to hit 1 in the UK. It is the CD on which Michelle Kwan first heard "Fields of Gold," and immediately knew it was a song to which she had to skate. If you've not yet heard Eva Cassidy, this is where to begin. Regardless if you decide this is unnecessary, after you have all her other releases you will come back for it.Rock Vinyl Records \"Take those old records off the shelf,\" is the opening line of Bob Seager's \"Old Time Rock and Roll,\" and it's never been more fitting than it is today. Even as digital music is everywhere, there's a growing demand for the analog sound of rock vinyl music records.
