    Thanks for the album! I've never heard "Mickey Mouse: This Is My Life" before, because my YouTuber "TerryT1976"/"VinylRecordsForever" has that album. I might record it onto a tape play it on my video soon.

    These rare and nearly forgotten (by many) vinyls are a real joy to listen to.
    This was when Disney was still "Disney" - commercial yes but what we wanted at the time.
    They really do bring back the Disney feeling - before iPods, computers and all those things. Simpler (not necessarily better, of course) pleasures.
    Nice. :angry:

    Listening to this right now. I find this album has an interesting variety of songs.

    -"1925 Charleston" by Cliff Edwards, I think off his album of 20's era songs?

    -3 different versions of the Mickey Mouse march. :)

    -Shaggy Dog Cha Cha Cha by Paul Frees :) - talk about a different voice for him. And Camarata's arraignment is so nice!

    -Humprey Hop and the Big Bear Boogie - from the Park Ranger shorts??

    -I always enjoy listening to Jimmy Dodd sing.

    I know the theme park music is very popular and I love it also, but I missed a lot of this early stuff growing up and it's nice to re-discover albums like this. Not sure if many like these Disney vinyls as much as I do. I hope my update postings are not getting annoying :D

    Many thanks, Ken! These albums are what I was always looking for if not hunt down too. If I'd ever seen the the album cover, or hear of the recording, it seems as if it's been there all along; I want it. And you now present it. Many thanks again.

    "makeminemusic"

    I found this one on YouTube that they have a video of a song taken from the LP "Happy Birthday and Songs for Every Holiday" which is "How Lucky We Are" by the Mouseketeer Chorus. I'm sure if you have this album, please add it to your "Ears" Record Player on your site. Thanks! And Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    The song "1925" is actually from a "Fun with Music Day" skit on the second season of the Mickey Mouse Club TV show. It was recorded by Cliff Edwards for a Mickey Mouse Club record called "Roll Up the Rug for more Mouskedances" in 1956 and included on several subsequent compilations. It was not included on the Ukelele Ike Sings Again LP. That LP was comprised of songs he had originally recorded in the 1920's.

    "Humphrey Hop" is a reworking of a song called "Put it in the Bag" from the Humphrey the Bear cartoon called "In the Bag". It was the song the bears sang as they were picking up trash in the park. The reworked song was part of a first season Mickey Mouse Club "Fun with Music Day" number. I think the "Big Bear Boogie" was written for a Mickey Mouse Club number but I'm not sure.

    I think Paul Frees' voice has been slowed down for that Shaggy Dog album. It doesn't sound natural to me. He probably recorded it at a faster pace and then the tape was slowed down to give his voice that distinctive sound.

    Thanks! I used to have that album since I was a kid, but I lost it many years ago since my parents moved out from Puerto Rico back to New York City. I used to have "The Mouse Factory" since I lost it years ago, but it's back on one of the blogs. Great to hear more of these back online.

    You think he sounds strange on that album? I am listening and recording "Frosty's Winter Wonderland" Paul Frees is Jack Frost. Now this is a different voice for him.

    Has this been added to the Player yet? I didn't see it in the list of available titles...or am I just missing it?

    On another note, I'm sure you are already aware of it, but I found a site that posts various children's albums (and there are a few Disney titles also). It is called Kiddie Records Weekly and can be found here: Kiddie Records Weekly

    I'm not real savvy with FireFox. Is there a way to refresh the player screen (I tried "Ctrl + R", but that only works in a normal window). I've closed and opened the player several times, but only the same titles are shown.

    EDIT: I just updated Firefox, Shockwave and Flash Player without any luck. I'm running out of ideas!

    Hi Fan,
    I am not sure why it is not showing up for you. If you continue to have problems, I can add it as a blog item in addition to the player. I added STER3034 "The Happy Wanderer" last night to the player. Can you see/hear that one?

    I have not been able to open the record player at all, and never have been able to. Do I need to download something in order to access it?

    :p
    It can seem a little tricky to get the thing working - took me quite a while to figure it out.
    I'm using Firefox BUT when the player (the yellow.swf page) opens, it's tiny and, at first, there's no playlist.
    If you make it full page, the playlist (titled "load albums") is half off my screen to the left. It can't be seen on the minimized screen at all.
    Drag it to the middle and click to make it stay where it is (you can then make the page smaller again, it'll stay where you put or click on the + sign on the player (that brings up the list of albums).
    Hovering the mouse pointer over the "?" at bottom right brings up the instructions.

    Disneychris, when you say you can't open the player, do you mean the actual swf page doesn't open or the player is empty?
    If nothing opens up, you may need to update your flash player.
    If the player is empty, click the + at thebottom.
    Hope that helps.
