The OLD old mp3 cut of "Elda telefonkataloger"

Post by fireplayer » Thu Nov 19, 2015 3:03 am

Hey peeps - I'm new here at least posts-wise.

I see this forum is mainly concentrated on John's english translations.

Me, I'm a Swede - and a collector of John's work - (in Swedish + other langages first pressings of stories) - and believe that I have maybe 95% of what's out there.

One thing I do miss, however - and that is the first version reading of "Elda telefonkataloger" ("Torching phone books") featured as a free download at a now shutdown site called fardlektyr.nu - this was back in 2006. The reason this was posted here is that it was included in the "Färdlektyr" compilation book that same year.

Now, with the site being dead - I have had no luck finding the actual mp3 from the site. Not even archive.org will help - and the master himself no longer has it.

So here's for taking the chance and asking if there may be any Swede here - who was a fan - already back then and who still has it saved?

I am well aware of it being released on the "Låt de gamla drömmarna dö" ("Let the old dreams die") Audio book - but it is not the same recording. I own the Audio Book for that... so NOT looking for that take. Only looking for the one from the färdlektyr site.

Shown by archive.org as https://web.archive.org/web/20070107115 ... nu/mp3.asp

That is where it was - but is sadly dead now.

If anyone can help I'd be eternally grateful - and can trade for copies of older short stories in first pubishings...

SIDENOTE: The year after - another JAL short story was included in this compilation - that was "Tjejen" ("The Girl") - this time, however - it was not read by John himself, but by a random female student.

Helluva first post. Well, Hi peeps.

Thanks - is there any part of this forum that lists a bibliography of sorts of JAL?

No, but I'd be happy to assist you in making one. ;)

Well - I could only assist you in Swedish first releases - and possibly other language exclusives / stories released in other languages first.

That would mean creating a whole new section - a Wikipedia type of Section that can easily be corrected / filled in..?

And that would possibly include first sources of stories - later released in compilations like Låt de gamla drömmarna dö / LTODD.

I have first source for plenty in there.

Sorry. I got a little bit distracted. It would be easy enough to create another forum section that anyone could read, but only a few could access. Would that suit your vision?
