If you’re my age (or older) you probably remember the “book and record” sets they would sell at stores (and schools had them as well).
If you remember these- It was going to be a fun afternoon after getting one at the department store or record shop. Plop the record on your player (or put the cassette in the tape deck), open the book- as you read on and looking at the artwork… you were transported to whatever world they were telling you about. And don’t forget- to turn the page when you hear the tone! It was a special thing that in today’s media savvy world wouldn’t look at twice. But trust me- it was magical!
Which brings me to todays Donkey Kong Memory- The Donkey Kong story album from 1983!
And thanks to the miracle of the interwebs- WE CAN LISTEN TO IT RIGHT NOW!
So- what did you think? They changed the story- but it’s a fun little adventure. and to a kid in 1983- it was awesome! let me know in the comments!
Keep Playin’ Like It’s 1981!
