ebay-logoMEGA-RARE! VOYAGER 1 GOLDEN RECORD – ONE ONLY IN EXISTENCE, NO RESERVE.

Music

The 90-minute varied selection of music featuring featuring artists such as Beethoven, Guan Pinghu, Mozart, Stravinsky, Blind Willie Johnson, Chuck Berry and Kesarbai Kerkar, includes one  jazz track, 3 minutes long, from Louis Armstrong and his hot Seven. (That’s what happens when you leave selection to a committee).

The copyright owners of the music on the record signed agreements only permitted the replay outside of the solar system. EMI alledgedly refused to allow the inclusion of The Beatles title “Here Comes The Sun” on the record, presumably fearful of Space Piracy. So no exceptions: this record may only be played outside our solar system.

Record:

The record is gold-plated copper with cover in aluminum and electroplated with ultra-pure isotope uranium-238 with a half-life of 4.468 billion years. A few meteorite scuffs, nothing serious, still a strong VG ++ Writing in deadwax: “To the makers of music – all worlds, all times”  No ear.

    • Definitely deep groove. It was actually (genuinely) made on 16rpm. This was putting a lot of trust in a format that failed some time earlier. When I stumbled on it, there were a lot of angles that were hard to fathom. Like why no Sun Ra.
