Are you are looking for a favorite old children's record? If it's on 78-rpm, there is a 90% chance that I have it! Copyright permitting, you can CDs by mail or MP3 downloads by email. These recordings are intended for personal use only, and are not for commercial reissue. See below to determine how to calculate the price of an order, as well as how to place the order and pay for it.

To see if I have a specific record in my collection, just click on the following link to the new KIDDIE REKORD SEARCH.  Here you will be able to locate any record in my database by using key words such as title, artist, record label, or even single words or phrases. Even though I have the great majority of the titles listed, you will need to contact me prior to ordering just to make sure that I actually have it in my collection. In the list that is generated from the search, there is a column which shows "# of records". If you multiply this number by "two", you will be able to determine the total number of sides in your order (except in those cases where the title in question takes up only one side--I will confirm such information in an email to you.)

I use state of the art CD burning (recording) and phonograph equipment. CDs and MP3s are digital "images" of the audio track of the original record. I do not employ the use of audio restoration software since I want to recreate the record sounds as close as possible to what you remember from your childhood. In any case, I rarely get a request for audio cleanup. If desired, you can process the digital audio track through any available software program to "restore" it. Having said that, most of my records are in fine condition. Please keep in mind that inherent in old 78s are surface noises, such as hiss, clicks and pops. Any occasional skip or hang up in the record will be noted in your order, or prior to your order being shipped. CDs hold 80 minutes of recording time. Alternatively, as stated above, you can download the MP3 files attached to an email.

Please note that all of my records are 78 rpms (and a few early 45s). If you are looking for an LP (33 1/3 rpm), (with the exception of about a dozen in my collection) I won't have it in my collection. If you own LPs that you would like to convert to CDs, I can provide this service at the LP rate.

In addition to making recordings, copyright permitting, I offer laser color images of the covers, inside liners, attached book pages, etc. See below for prices and specifications.

How To Tell Me What You Want To Order:

My Website is not set up as a shopping cart and check out. Before sending funds it will be necessary for you to know the correct price. The cost of CDs or MP3s is based on the number of record sides ordered. Refer to notes in previous paragraphs to see how this can be determined. As always, I will confirm the correct totals for you by email (or phone). I will tell you if the selections are available in my inventory. Then I need to know what options, if any, you want (color images,laminations, etc.). Discounts may be available as well, so these have to be figured in. So, please contact me before ordering.

How To Place And Pay For An Order:

Payment is in US funds only.

Credit card (only available online through PayPal). This is my preferred method. A direct link to my PayPal account is found by clicking on the PayPal logo near the top of this page or directly below. You don't even have to sign up with PayPal to make a payment through them. PayPal is a very safe and secure process these days, maybe more so than swiping your Credit Card at a store, or giving the number verbally over the phone. In the PayPal payment form, just put in the lump sum total. Important note: Use the text box that says "add special instructions to the seller" to include details of what you are ordering. This information will also have been covered in previous emails and/or phone calls between us. This box will appear just before the final PayPal step (before finalzing the transaction).
