These records were produced by Walt Disney. I thought it was unusual that the orchestra was conducted by Mitchell Miller rather than his later records were by Mitch Miller.

Record One is Silent Night with The Sandpiper Chorus. Side two is It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.

Record Two is When You Wish Upon a Star with Anne Lloyd, The Sandpipers with the Miller Orchestra. It is the song. Side Two is same group and the story of Pinocchio.

Record Three is from Alice in Wonderland with The Sandpipers. Side one is A Very Merry Unbirthday and side two is The Mad Tea Party…….come to think of it, maybe this could be the theme song of the modern day “Tea Parties”!

    I’m sure I listened to all these is a kid. I still haven’t gotten over the fact that most vinyl is black. Color is make listening to the music so much more of a happy experience. These are all classics!

      Allee, Did you get the Frosty the Snowman record that I mailed you? Have you had a chance to look at the DVD I sent you on The Human-Be In?

        Hey, Bob! I just got back from being in and out and on the road off and on for the last couple of weeks. There was a pile of boxes waiting for me and, indeed, the Frosty the Snowman record is here. I’m thrilled to have it. Thank you so much!! The little yellow record is completely adorable and of course it’s always great to have these things in the original paper sleeve. The artwork is gorgeous. And I love that it was recorded by MITCHELL Miller, I will for sure have it out this Christmas!

        And, yes, I did finally get to watch The Human-Be In. There was no sound so I just want to make sure and check whether there was supposed to be or not. But the footage itself was incredible. It was really great to get to see something I’ve always heard about and wish I could’ve been at shot by someone who was there.

        THANK YOU!
