What was the original source of the audio files "THE STORY of SUPERMAN'S LIFE!" and "SUPERMAN'S MYSTERY POWER!" ? I assume sound kind of Read Along record album.

It wasn't a "read-along."

It was some sort of "radio-play"-like audio CD, with just those three tracks on it.  It never mentioned anything about the source material.

We've talked about it before somewhere in this forum, but I wasn't able to find the discussion after doing a quick search just now.  Someone else here also bought the CD and was talking about it.

Which page number are you having difficulties with?  They all work fine for me.

I'm not having trouble downloading it, you forgot to upload page twelve of the original comic story.  This story originally had thirteen pages, not twelve.  Your page twelve is really the last page of the comic.  I know this because in the original story, on page twelve we got to see Pa Kent's dying words, Superboy's farewell to Smallville, the crowd forming into letters saying "FAREWELL, SUPERBOY, WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU" and Superboy's super cake.
