ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Struck by the emerging video game fad in 1981, (Jerry) Buckner and (Gary) Garcia recorded “Pac Man Fever” as a tribute to the popular video game and shopped it around to various major labels. All the companies turned it down but Arnie Geller heard something he liked and released it on his independent BGO records. The song became an instant hit after airing on a local morning show. After selling over 10,000 copies in a week CBS decided to release the record nationally in December 1981 and within a month requested a full album. Buckner and Garcia set about quickly learning every popular arcade game they could. The album was completed in just two weeks. A rush of media coverage followed and both the single and album were a major hit; "Pac-Man Fever" sold over two and one half million copies. Retro-fueled interest in early video games prompted the duo to re-record the Pac-Man Fever album in 1999 for its first release on CD. Currently the guys have written and released a tribute song for the All Amercian Soap Box Derby donating portions of the proceeds to the financially strapped race. The song is called "Keepin The Dream Alive" and can be purchased on the Buckner & Garcia CD Baby webpage.

BOB LAWRENCE for WE THE PEOPLE

It's the only way to get it, so get it!
Very clever album concept and take on the video game craze in the 80's. The tracks have been re-recorded so die hard fans will notice a difference, however, Buckner & Garcia did a pretty good job recreating it. The original LP has never been issued on CD. This is the only way to get it. So enjoy Pac Man Fever all over again!

Ode to a Great Album
I remember listening to this album when I was younger. I thought it was cool and funny back then and I still think so 20 years later. I've been looking for this on CD for years, thank you for re-releasing it.

Pac Man Fever
This album takes me back to when I was a kid and I love it all over again. I found my old record and played it for my 5-year old. He immediately started dancing and singing. I'm so glad I was able to find it on CD, I gave my brothers copies for Christmas and they were all excited. Thanks CD BABY!
