Rick, What do you use to play them? Do you transfer them to mp3 or another format?

I don't collect the old records, but I do enjoy how they've released quite a few of them on itunes. It would be nice if they were categorized to make them easier to find in the itunes store.

Added this album to the "Ears" record player: www.mountainears.org

WDL-4020 America the Beautiful
Walt Disney present's A Musical Mural
1959


From the liner notes in the album:

"At the American Exhibition in Moscow and at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California there are identical structures housing a new multiple screen motion picture exhibition form called Circarama. The subject matter of the films being screened in these widely separated locations is the same: a twenty-minute pictoral paean to America. Fittingly enough, the song America the Beautiful is heard at the beginning and the end of the show. The sights and sounds of America depected in this new motion picture form are truly overwhelming, but the beauties of our land conjured up by our heritage of songs about our country have a special eloquence of their own.

America is a home-loving and peace-loving land and it certainly is fitting that one of our most popular patriotic songs is far from martial; instead it is a description of the beauty of our country. The words of this song. America the Beautiful, were written by Katherine Lee Bates, who was Professor of English at Wellesley College, and set to the hymn tune of Materna. America, the beautiful, forms the theme of this album and while the stirring Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean and Battle Hymn of the Republic are included, the majority of the songs are descriptive. From the sidewalks of New York to the pains of Oklahoma, and from the banks of the Wabash to old Kentucky - familiar melodies of these places as performed by the Disneyland Chorus piant a musical picture of the United States of America."



Sam the Eagle endorses this album! (as do I)


note: Unsure if these songs were the same ones used in the Circarama or not. Anybody have knowledge of this??

In case you're interested... :)

Don't know if anyone got this email but Broadway Disney is having a special Halloween podcast tomorrow, Oct 20th at 7pm EST.

More info....
This month is our spook-tacular Halloween special featuring a very special Broadway ghost story.

Tune in Monday October 20th at 7pm Eastern Time as we take you on an exclusive tour of the historic New Amsterdam Theatre in search of Broadway's most famous theatre ghost, Olive Thomas. A featured Ziegfield Follies beauty at the New Amsterdam from 1915-1916, Olive met her fate when she swallowed poison at a Paris hotel. No one knows if it was suicide, murder, or a simple mistake. Since the 1920s workers at the theatre have reported seeing her ghostly figure.

Join us for a chilling, Halloween adventure on Broadway as we spend an evening at the theatre with house manager Dana Amendola, and talk to Disney employees who have had close encounters. Maybe we will, too!

Complete broadcast schedule for this program:
Monday, October 20 at 7pm Eastern Time
Tuesday, October 21 at 3pm Eastern Time
Friday, October 24 at 10pm Eastern Time
Saturday, October 25 at 2pm Eastern Time

You can listen to it here...
