I've gotten hold of the old book/records "To the Moon" by Time-Life. It is a big book and six LP records with space history. Included are old recordings about Goddard, von Braun and of course Mercury, Gemini and Apollo highlights. The layout is very similar to "In Their Own Words" published some years ago. But the selection of recordings are different.

I'm in the process of putting the records on mp3 so I can enjoy them in modern players, and before the records or the turntables fall apart.

Hope someone here can help...

Trying to track down an MP3 version of the Time Life publication and record set "To The Moon." I have fond memories listening to this as a child and would like to share the experience with my children.

Editor's note: Threads merged.

If Jan is sharing, I would appreciate a digital version as well. I listened to these albums to the point that they were worn out and I knew, essentially, every word on them.

I wonder whether there might be a copyright issue for distributing mp3-files of the vinyls. In case it is no problem, could collectSPACE host them for download?

Oh, does this thread bring back memories of 1969. I remember vividly receiving the mailing from Time-Life advertising the pre-order with the reply card enclosed; it came around the time of the Apollo 9 mission if I recall. Then, following the next flights through to Apollo 11 itself and the wait for its release. The boxed set came out by the end of the year.

My original copy of the records (and book) are now dog-eared, but I have since acquired a like-new set I plan on keeping sealed, and a recent buy of the records only in better shape to use as a listening/digital recording source. One of those iconic 'Spoken Word' LPs a collector must have.

Not recieved a response back from Jan yet either via the forums or by my personal email! Jan, if your out there, please drop me a note. Else is there someone else on the forums who has a copy they are willing to share? Please help.

As for any copyright issues, I don't believe there are any as this is purely a transaction between one collector to another and for own personal consumption. No profit gained.

Just looking forward to getting a copy and sharing experiences with my children.

I have that same set myself at home. If anyone has the digital version, I'd love to get a copy of it also. I don't have a turntable anymore that would play those.

I hate to be the spoil sport but to be clear, making copies of a work protected by copyright and then distributing those copies over the internet — even for free — is in violation of the law.

You can't, for example, buy an audio CD at the store, make a copy and e-mail that copy to your friend. Your friend has to buy his/her own copy. (For an even clearer example, replace "audio CD" above with "book.")

Now that said, the law does allow you to make copies (even in formats other than the original, e.g. vinyl record to mp3) for personal use. And while it is technically not the same thing, an argument could be made that if you own the Time-Life set, and you get the mp3 files from another owner it is the same as if you enlisted the help of a friend to make a copy of your set for your own use (though the Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA, might disagree).

So no, collectSPACE nor any other website can legally host the files for download. But if you own the records, and you are seeking the mp3 files for your own use from another owner of the same set, then you are probably okay. (Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.)

Hello All - no response as yet. Hence this wider call to any members of the forum who might have this in MP3 format and are willing to gracefully share..

For the record - I have just taken received in hand a complete set of the Time-Life records and accompanying book, care of a fellow collector from Scotland. The condition isn't great 'B' grade however my children are fascinated by the records but unfortunately I no longer have a record player to listen them on.

Hence any members who are willing share, please contact me... your sharing will be much appreciated and you will excite and inspire (my children) next generation - Thanks!
