Are you are looking for a favorite old children's record?
If so, there is a 90% chance that I have it, if it is a 78 rpm. If I don't have an extra
copy of the record(s) you seek, copyright permitting, I can burn a custom a CD or let you
download it as an MP3 file from my Website. 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.

I use state of the art CD burning
(recording), taping and phonograph equipment. CDs and MP3s are only mirror
"images" of the audio track of the original record. I do not employ the use
of audio restoration software since, as per my customers request, I want to recreate the
sounds as close as possible to what you remember from your childhood.
If you order a CD or MP3 however, you can process the digital audio
track through any available software program in order to 'clean' it up.
Having said that, most of my records are in fine condition. Of
course, inherent in old 78s are surface noises, hiss, clicks,
pops, and the like. Any occasional skip or hang up in the record
will be noted in your order, or prior to your order being shipped.
If you order a CD, it will hold uo to 80 minutes of recordings. If you prefer, I can
supply an audiocassette instead of a CD (same price). Alternatively, as stated above, you can download
the MP3 files directly from my Website with a special link that I will provide.
Please note that all of my records are the older 78 rpms (and some 45s). If you are looking for
an LP (33 1/3 rpm), (with the exception of about six in my collection), especially one from the 1960s
or later, I cannot help you.
In addition to making recordings, copyright permitting, I offer
laser color images and laminations of the covers, inside liners,
attached book pages, etc. See below for prices and specifications.
comments from my satisfied customers.....
per record side. Minimum size CD order: 2 sides ($14 + s&h). All of my records are
78s or 45s unless otherwise specified to be LPs. (see note below)
Your final price is based on the total number of record sides recorded.
It is NOT determined by how many CDs it takes to complete the
order. IMPORTANT!: Before ordering, please check with me first to determine total number
of sides required for your order and the total amount due.
NOTE: LPs (33 1/3 rpm) burned to a CD are a
flat rate of $35 per
record. This includes the entire LP, both sides.
- MP3 Downloads
from my Website: $6 per record
side. Minimum size MP3 order: 2 sides ($12 + processing fee). Maximum MP3 order size is 12 record sides.
This option provides a faster turnaround and delivery time, to say nothing of the price being lower than
CDs. I will provide you with a link to download the MP3 files from my Website.
- Laser color images:
$5 each. Copyright
permitting, I can provide repros of record jackets & covers, liners, attached books, etc.
The images are not printed on the CD
There are two size options:
1). Actual size of the original record cover.
Copies are done on heavy coated paper stock. This gives it the look and feel of the original cover.
Exception: covers which are 12-inches must be reduced to 10-inches to fit in the copying machine. This is
about a 17% reduction. Less than 5% of my record covers are this size.
Suitable for laminating, framing, etc. See below for lamination
CD case size. Fits into the front of a
slim jewel CD case. [Note: please be aware that any small print
on the original cover will be reduced dramatically]. The overall
quality of the graphic design and color won’t be affected. It
is like a giant ‘thumbnail’ image, as seen on my Website. Copies
are done on coated (glossy) paper to look like an original store
IMPORTANT: When ordering please specify which size color print
you want. You can even order in both sizes, if so desired.
$10 (up to 2 images per lam, placed back to back).
The lamination charge is in addition to the color image charge.
E.g. One color image laminated is $5 + $10. Two color images laminated
back to back (in one lamination) would be $10 + $10. The two image
lamination would be, for example, if both the front and back of
a record cover were color images. If the back of the cover is
black and white, the charge is only $1.
This is a great idea for gifts.

How To Tell Me What You Want To Order:
Me, Peter Kiddie
Art Museum Order
My Website is not set up with a typical online ordering form
(shopping cart and check out). Before sending funds it will be necessary for you to email or
call me to let me know specifically what you are looking for. I will tell you if the
selections are available in my inventory. At that point I can figure out how many record sides
involved in order to give you correct a price quote. 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
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 directly below. You don't even have to sign up with PayPal to make a credit card
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.
You can specify what you are ordering on this form,
however it is not necessary. The details are usually confirmed by separate emails
with me. (see paragraph above)
Checks/money orders: I am happy to take personal checks or
money orders. Checks should be made payable to: Peter Muldavin.
Mail to: 173 W. 78th St., New York, NY 10024
