Alice In Wonderland records

Today I wanted to post two Alice in Wonderland LPs I picked up at the thrift shop a few weekends ago. As I was setting up to take photo of the two covers, I got to thinking about all the stuff I have been seeing on line about the upcoming Tim Burton Alice In Wonderland movie. I then decided to expand my post to include all the Alice vinyl I have in my collection.
The first on is A Disneyland Records LP (DQ 1208) from 1959. I have two different versions. The first has a small white boarder about the edge of the front cover and the back cover is black and white with ads for 9 other Walt Disney long playing records... All for only $1.98 each! The other version has the red going right out to the edges of the cover (the LP pictured here). The back cover of this one is also black and white and features scenes from the movie along with the song title listings for the album.
NSecond is a nice LP from 1960 which contains the complete story, all the songs and the music, plus a full color illustrated book especially prepared for children by the Walt Disney Studio. This one opens up to reveal a book inside with great artwork and the story.
Third is the blue colored cover "Alice in Wonderland" from 1968. This one has the same back cover as the 1959 album with the scenes on the back, but this one is in color. Strangely, the front of the album is listed as copyright 1968 Walt Disney Productions, but the back says copyright 1963 Walt Disney Productions.Then I have 3 different 45 sized records (all are actually 33 1/3). Two of them are the 33 1/3 long playing records with 24 page books, the cover with the yellow border is from 1965 and the other is from 1979. The third record is a picture sleeve album from 1972.

Dyanna... thanks for checking out my blog. It is so much fun sharing my Disney records with others who enjoy them as much as me.
I have loved collecting Disney records for the past 20+ years, but now sharing my collection with others has made the collecting even more fun!

Excellent blog. I am a collector of Disney vinyl myself and I did have a rare Magic Mirror LP of Alice with Darlene Gillespie narrating and singing the songs. I was happy to find it again, only to discover it had Ginny Tyler as Alice. Oh, well! I'll have to keep my eyes open for that version with Darlene.

I've got a yellow 1965 33 1/3 Alice record myself along with a large collection of other Disney records. Found them in my dad's basement. :) Might be willing to part with some or all.

hello my name is conway. I'm a big fan of Alice and Wonerland. Over the holidays I aquired an Original 1947 Record set of vinyls of Alice and wonderland and I was trying to find out its value. You are the only other person I've tried to contact on this matter. Two dealers before me tried finding this albumn on the internet to no avail so they couldn't find out what it is worth. My email is conwaytobler@gmail.com If you would like I would gladly send a picture to you of the cover that is still in good condition. Thanks

In my experience, the 1965 records don't normally go for more than $10-$12 unless they are signed or in some other ways unique. Your 1947 set is going for $25 now on Ebay so that would be a good way of factoring the value. I thought they'd bring in more myself so I am keeping my set.

I agree with Carson in his assesment of prices for the albums. My collection of Disney vinyl is extreemly valuable to me, but would never get as much as I would want if I tried to sell it on eBay! I usually get all my new Disney vinyl at local thrift shops etc., for next to nothing. That's what makes collecting so much fun!
