Our Memorabilia section continues to expand, with the most recent addition being the UK LP release for the Night of the Comet Soundtrack. Whereas MACOLA released the USA edition, The UK edition was released by CHORD.There doesn’t appear to be much information about CHORD online and Discogs only records a handful of releases, with the Night of the Comet Soundtrack being release 006. Discogs indicated a 1984 release date, however, the label date on our aquired edition shows a 1985 release date.
