How about some more Freedomland? Jed over at the somewhat dormant but always excellent blog “Vintage Disneyland Goodies” sent in these awesome scans of some Freedomland Tickets – Thank you Jed!
The tickets are on Globe Safety paper, similar to Disneyland’s but the pattern looks a little different. The tickets are colored "Visa's" instead of Disneyland’s lettered "Coupons" (Which Knott’s copied, in reverse order, minus the “E”, but I digress.).
The back is very similar to Disneyland also, except I see Freedomland had a release of liability for any personal injury sustained while in the park, a result of the stage coach accident possibly? Thanks again Jed for these scans!
Jed's great contribution got me in the mood to play and record the Freedomland LP, just listing to the LP got me feeling better, what a time capsule.
The LP is not dated, but several sources date it as 1960. 1960 is the year of by Johnny Horton’s “hit” that’s the first song on side two - “Johnny Freedom”. It’s excellent as is most of the LP. The LP has its high and lows, the Chicago fire sequence at the end of side two is a total downer. “Ashes and black earth are all that remained, nothing standing, nothing growing, nothing green remained” fun times.
