WDL-4001 Song of the South

Fresh off a 4 year run as a display in "The Music Behind The Magic" exhibit, here is the album that was the first soundtrack for Disneyland records. Make sure you take a good look at the back cover as it describes how this record came into being.

    Bobby Driscoll was a remarkable lad in the Disney films (Song of the South, Treasure Island, So Dear to my Heart)it was really sad he died so young.

    I am hoping SOTS will be released someday also. If you have not seen "So Dear to my Heart", get it!! Walt said this film reminded him of his childhood in Missouri.

    Wow Ken, this is truly a classic. I remember seeing this film a few times at the theater, and my mother, living in Bakersfield in the fifties, went on a group date with Bobby. Sadly, he didn't live much longer.

    Very interesting words on the back cover explaining how the record was made. Someday this film may be released. I hope so. Thanks for this one.

    Thanks John! Fixed. I should hire you as my QA man ;-)

    As you discovered the tracks on the vinyl (8) do not match the listing on the label or sleeve. What you listed is correct.

    Thanks for posting this! I'm a little confused with the track listing though. The pictures of the LP labels list 13(?) tracks and you've posted 8. After listening, I've realized that several tracks are combined into one track. But you have one track that isn't listed on the LPs (Track 7 = Born and Bred In a Briar Patch). Also, I'm unable to listen to the last track...it doesn't play. Here's what I've been able to decipher:
    Track 1 = Song Of the South; Track 2 = Uncle Remus Said/Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah; Track 3 = Ginny and Johnny/Who Wants To Live Like That/Let the Rain Pour Down; Track 4 = How Do You Do; Track 5 = Sooner Or Later/Everybody Has a Laughing Place; Track 6 = Let the Rain Pour Down/Uncle Remus Leaves; Track 7 = Born and Bred In a Briar Patch; Track 8 should then = All I Want/Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah/Song Of the South (?).
