These were originally from 1956. This one is old, not sure it it’s from 1956, but it’s a “High Fidelity Recording” and the record itself is as thick as a plate! You can actually buy the CD from Disney (link) they place this LP as 1956.
Great cover, glossy and still in great shape, Walt sure looks proud to be on the cover.
Song information and a fun map on the back. Check out the Tomorrowland lagoon, look at the little Air-Boat, is that the Phantom boat replacement that never made it? I’ve seen an attraction poster for those somewhere?
Here are the Long Play 33 1/3 record labels.
And now a few choice samples. Please keep in mind this record is old. I cleaned it as best as I could, but it still has some cracks and pops, however the music still comes thru nicely. I wonder if Walt recorded the vocals just for this record. You really don’t hear much (if any) of this great audio being reused or maybe I’ve just missed it.

Main Street (I think that squeaking noise at the start is the train brakes):
Adventureland (This music sure sounds like Jungle Book music):
I hope you enjoyed today’s show and tell, if scratchy old records aren’t your thing, come back tomorrow for some Vintage Disneyland Tickets.
If you do like old Disneyland Records, I have more and their not as scratchy…
