When Reddit user Muctur bought a used copy of Soundgarden's Superunknown on vinyl, he wasn’t expecting to find a hidden message inside the album.
Uploading a snap of the secret letter, he said: “Bought a used LP. I found this inside. Right in the feels.”
The letter was from the previous owner’s mother and the music came with a story.
She explained the order of events that led up to her selling the records.
It said: "Dear Collector –
"Just in case you want to know where this record is coming from: I'm Mark's mother – Mark left us in 2002 – he suffered a heart attack at age 39 while running in the Oregon coastal mountains.
“The only consolation we have is that he died in a beautiful place doing what he loved most, running, music and of course his son, Kai (Mark was an ocean surfer).
“Mark collected this music in the 80s while attending college – I would ask him on occasion when he slepped [sic] all this music home (2,000 CDs and over 600 vinyl LPs) ‘What do you want me to do with all this music’ if something should happen to you."
“‘Listen to it, Mom’ he would say – well, I did listen to a few but now it is time to share them – I am doing the best I can – doing research, listing, shipping etc.
“But it is a good therapy for me to see this music being shared all over the world – and the $$ from it will go towards Kai's education.
“Thank you for your support – and when you play it – play it loud for Mark!
