I had The Mummy one.
I know there have been previous threads relating to Ladybird Horror Pickwick Tell A Tale cassette recordings and I have managed to get all but one of the Horror Classics: Dracula. I know it was uploaded by RetroGhoul but side one of cassette is no longer available or has expired.
So I put it out there: does anyone have a copy of the audio Ladybird cassette recording of Dracula they could upload to a file sharing site? Or if someone does know where I can download it from, please let me know on here or send me a message with the link. Thanks

Yes there has been a previous thread on this, closed now, but Retro Ghoul was doing a fine job preserving these recordings. You could try to private-message him about Dracula - i need to get that side1 link as well!
I am working on preserving some of my Pickwick Tell-a-Tale tapes. I need to get the leads first. But... I have Journey To The Centre of the Earth which is in the best quality of my tapes i think. It really is a great tape though - brilliant music and still exciting. Also i have The Lost World, although the quality is fading a bit - i am trying to preserve them fast. Also i have Robin Hood, and A Christmas Carol - however someone has put this one on Youtube! Also on Youtube someone has managed to work out who composed much of the music from the Pickwick tapes - from Wagner to Berlioz etc. I am also going to preserve a non-Pickwick horror cassette with Dracula's Guest and The Haunted Dolls House on it - read by the same guy who did the Pickwick Horrors, and is definitely within the same vein.
Anyway soon i will be attempting preservation of what i have and when done i will write on here, and anyone interested can pm me for the link.
I do believe these audio memories of Pickwick tapes badly need to be preserved. Anyone else who has any please get in touch and hope to share these with you.
Please, please, please could u let me know what the music is on Journey to the center of the earth? I had the tape when I was younger and I listened to it so many times that the tape broke. I have researched everywhere to find out what the music was but have never been able to find out.
If anyone could point me toward audio uploads for the ladybird horror classic The Hound of the Baskervilles I would be eternally grateful - it meant a lot to me and my sister as kids. Many thanks.

Jpm4 - are you still looking for audio Hound of the Baskervilles? I can private message you with some help if no one has done so already. Joe there is a link to the journey to the centre of the earth audio tape as well, i can pm you as well with this info if you like.
It's a shame the cassettes didn't come in boxes, a few more might have survived!
It's great to know that you guys remember these tapes. I have converted mine to mp3s and play them to my kids from my phone!
That sounds fantastic, I'd be really interested in those files when you manage to make them. I used to have that cassette and I'd love to hear it againI am also going to preserve a non-Pickwick horror cassette with Dracula's Guest and The Haunted Dolls House on it - read by the same guy who did the Pickwick Horrors, and is definitely within the same vein.
Hey pazuzu, thanks for your help. Have tried to pm but it's not working for some reason!
