Blog - Power Records PlazaI first posted about Power Records Plaza back in 2007. It looks like’s in mothballs now, perhaps it has completely fulfilled its mission? The site is dedicated to an obscure 1970s and 1980s record company named Power Records.

Here’s the cover of Power Records #16 – Man-Thing – Night Of The Laughing Dead (a story which abridges and adapts a story begun in Man-Thing #5, May 1974, written by Steve Gerber and with art by Mike Ploog and Frank Chiaramonte):

Power Records #16 - Man-Thing - Night Of The Laughing Dead

Night Of The Laughing Dead is a bizarre mix of existentialism and the supernatural. There’s a suicidal clown, the world’s strongest man, and another man that no longer reasons – one who functions only on emotion. That man is YOU …. for you are the Man-Thing!

I told you it was weird.

Conan The Barbarian - Movie Adaptation LPBack in 2007 Akim Bischoff wrote our review of the Power Records adaptation of Conan The Barbarian (the 1982 Motion Picture directed by John Milius) |READ OUR REVIEW|. Based on the character created by Robert E. Howard, it was the longest audio dramatization of a Conan story up to that point (it wasn’t surpassed until BrokenSea Audio’s Queen Of The Black Coast – currently available via torrent HERE). Akim concluded his review this way:

My only gripe with the record adaptation is I wish it featured the film’s original score. While the orchestration Power Records uses is vast and surprisingly well done, it’s hard to stand against the classic work of composer Basil Poledouris. Though, with their excellent cast and matching production values, this can be easily overlooked. Especially when listening to the “new” dialog and scenes ultimately left on the cutting room floor. As a fan of all things Conan and especially the films, it creates quite a thrill and leaves you slightly imagining… what might have been.

Now you can hear the entire recording, in five parts, as posted to YouTube:

Here is the same audio dramatization but with some of the Marvel comics adaptation added:
