Los Tres Caballeros

Yesterday I took a trip down to Marysville, WA to have dinner at the Golden Coral Buffet, which was amazing as always. On the way there I stopped at a few thrift stores and picked up a pile of really cool records including a lots of Disney records. My favorite of the bunch is this Spanish edition of The Three Caballeros which is on Disneylandia Discos. Its always cool finding something a little different, and this Spanish album is certainly something I have not seen before. My other two favorites are the America The Beautiful LP and the Babes in Toyland mini record with book. I didn't notice until I got home, but the Babes in Toyland record looks like it had never been opened, and it even had the business reply card inside with return postage to Disneyland Records, PO Box 407, Pramount, Calif., 90723, USA. Its always nice to find something that is in such pristine condition, especially in a thrift shop for just 50 cents!

Snow White Cassette Tape

I don't usually look though the cassette tapes at thrift shops, but this one was sitting on the shelve in such a way that it caught my eye while I was walking by. This purchase was a no brainer as cassette tapes in this store are usually 10 cents, and everything in the store was 50% off this day, so I ended up paying 5 cents for this tape.
This particular cassette tape is the soundtrack from Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and is from 1985, manufactured and distributed by Disneyland/Vista Records and Tapes, Burbank, CA.
Back when cassette tapes were a popular format, I never bought them. I was always an LP buyer. I also never bought 8-Tracks, although I remember having a friend who had an 8-Track payer in his car and I always laughed them a song would stop in the middle while the 8-Track changed tracks! No wonder that format failed.
