The Best Stories of AESOP

Disneyland Records The Best Stories of Aesop
Disneyland Records The Best Stories of AesopHere is a cool album I found this weekend at a local thrift shop. It is Wald Disney Presents The Best Stories of AESOP from 1961. Sterling Holloway narrates, with music by Camarata. This copy was manufactured by Sparton of Canada Ltd., London, Ontario.
On the back of the album is a list of the "Complete library of favorite Walt Disney stories as told by Sterling Holloway" which includes; Peter and the Wolf/Sorcerer's Apprentice, Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes, Three Little Pigs, Aesop's fables, Goliath, Country Cousin, Grasshopper and the Ants, and The Absent Minded Professor.
I love the albums like this one that have listings of other albums on the back. Its like a great checklist of other albums I need. In this case, I have 6 of the 8 listed. I still need to find Goliath and The Absent Minded Professor.

This LP was one of Sterling Holloway's best along with his Three Little Pigs album and a neighbor gave me these two albums years ago and I enjoyed them immensely. Sadly, we moved away and I never thought I'd see this album ever again I went to a record store and found this again. In addition, this album and Animal Stories of Aesop were also a 2-LP set in the Disneyland Double Feature series. Another fun part of this album were the appearance of Ginny Tyler and the music of Tutti Camarata.
