Power Records (1974)

Power Records was a record label, featuring characters licensed from DC Comics and Marvel Comics, and contemporary movies and television series (such as KojakPlanet of the ApesThe Six Million Dollar ManSpace: 1999, and Star Trek), in stories geared toward older children. The book-and-record sets frequently featured original 20-page comic books along with an extended-play 7″ record of the story. Playing the record while reading along in the book brought the story to life through music and sound effects. There were also other 7″ single releases. Besides book-and-record sets, LPs were produced, featuring the recorded stories without illustrations. As of 2010, none of the Power Records material has been re-released for CD or digital media due to copyright issues.
