Other Comments: Since both Sports and Sports 2 were 1978 programs, 1981's Amazing Sports Feats makes a nice follow-up with the more "relaxed attitude" 2-XL. In addition to straight-forward sports questions, the program also covers games and worlds records, so even people who know nothing about sports (like me) can find something to enjoy here.

"VIEWDATA" is a fabulous piece of music. We never used it in any of our childhood projects because, not being sports fans, we never bought the tape at the time. Our loss. The first time I listened to it I was hit by how strongly it sounded like it was made by the same musician that made "Tomorrow's Technology" from Word and Sound Games (a piece we did use a lot). It turns out both tracks were written by George Fenton, from the KPM Music Library release KPM-1223 SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL.

* A NOTE ABOUT PRINTING CARDS OR BOOKLETS: I'm attempting to make these files in the original sizes. Unfortunately computers are odd beasts, and something that looks the correct size doesn't always print at the correct size (or even show up as the same size on different computers). If it doesn't print at the correct size for you, your best bet is to save the file and open it through an image program such as Adobe Photoshop and resize it there.

A NOTE ABOUT MUSIC: All music titles have been arbitrarily chosen by Frank and myself. These titles were picked based on many different things: the program we first heard the song on, or the project we first used it in, or whatever imagery it made us think of the most. 15 second wav samples (approximately 325k each) have been included for your convenience to be used as a reference. The running times listed in the description above are NOT the sample length. They are the length of the song as it is used on the 2-XL tape pictured.
