Man On The Moon (1969)

To commemorate the first moon landings in July 1969 Philips put out a single via the Daily Telegraph newspaper in the UK.  This included the radio transmissions from the moon and included the welcome back; the Kennedy speech committing the US to go to the moon within a decade; the first words from the surface "One small step..." etc.  The pack includes graphics of the trip (a Map!); schematics of the Saturn 5 rocket and the various stages  of seperation to the Command and service modules and the LEM itself.  This was rushed out and (I was told) issued within three weeks of the astronauts return.
Combines my two main interests at the time - records and space travel!
