San Bernadino Postcards

THE Polish, like the Russians, also loved Christie and produced a few interesting items. During the hard-line Communist era, they found a novelty way of making use of discarded tyres .. they made records out of them!
     The records took the form of postcards, and were manufactured in a variety of colours. People in Poland could buy them and send them off to friends, who could then not only read the message on the postcard, they could flip it over and play it on their turntables!
     Several Polish postcard discs were made, often combining two big hits on the same item. In most cases, the artists on each disc belonged to different recording companies .. this was made possible because there were no licensing agreements in place in these countries. In effect, these were bootlegs of a sort.
    There were also single postcard pressings for Yellow River and San Bernadino. Each had a flower pattern on the picture side.
     Sound quality is poor - it sounds like you would expect discarded plastic to sound. The true worth of the item is in its novelty value.
