You never know what’s going to be in the post. Today we received this time capsule courtesy of Wojtek aka Bertie from Białystok Poland. Bertie recently bought a copy of Culture Shock’s Onwards And Upwards LP on Discogs, and inside he found this “reaction sheet”. Back in the dark ages of 1988, before there were things like CDs and the internet, we used to send out promos of vinyl LPs. Inside we’d include what we called a “reaction sheet”, for the journalists and DJs to fill in and send back to us (in the post! as a letter!). This one appears to have been created by hand by Kent Jolly who used to work here (I was obviously away and Kent couldn’t figure out how to use the typewriter, ha ha).
Bertie obviously has a good sense of humour and was impressed enough by the ancient technology that he found inside his copy of the album to fill in the reaction sheet and send it back to us. Thank you Bertie, for the window to the past!
