I Got a "Sleeping Beauty" LP at a Flea Market


I went to a flea market today and I found the "Sleeping Beauty" LP. This was not the soundtrack to this album, it was a reissue of an earlier LP which was on the Mickey Mouse Club label (MM-28) the same year as the original movie soundtrack came out.

The LP has 6 songs including two of them are sung by Darlene Gillespie, which was also on the Disneyland LP "Alice in Wonderland". She was a Moseketeer on the original "Mickey Mouse Club" back in the 1950's, Darlene sang two of the songs that are rare "I Wonder" and "Once Upon a Dream", two of these songs starts with a narration and then broke into a song.

There was also one song from that LP that it was not used in the film was called "Sing a Smiling Song". That was completely rare.

The LP was released as Disneyland DQ-1228 in 1962, after the LP came out, they later re-released it as a soundtrack instead of the 6 songs with the same numbering which was on that LP and the text on the bottom that says "Music from the Original Motion Picture Sound Track" was shown instead of "All the Songs from the Motion Picture". I have the LP that says "All the Songs from the Motion Picture" on the bottom. But you might find the later copy of this one.

The reissue has 9 songs from the original soundtrack instead of 6 with music by George Bruns. It was also a reissue of WDL-4018 and the stereo release as STER-4018 on both Disneyland and Buena Vista labels. I have the soundtrack on cassette, and as for the record itself, this is the only LP I have.

Any thoughts on that LP?

Hi. I've always had fun with this album since it's so different. I got mine at a flea market too ages ago. My copy has four celluloid type pictures on the front and is officially titled Songs from Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty and has 6 songs. The number on the record is MM-32. I have never heard of MM-28 and in the old standby book The Golden Age of Walt Disney Records 1933-1988 by Micheal Murray he lists MM-28 as Songs about Zorro and Other TV Heroes. I'd like to know what's on the cover of DQ-1228 and is it the same artwork for both the 6-track and the 9 track LPs.
Also the song credits on MM-32 are interesting: The Disneyland Chorus, Three Good Fairies, Two Kings, and the Disneyland Trio.

Thanks for the correction. My correction made a mistake. It was a reissue of MM-32, not MM-28. The cover for this LP has the same artwork and text on the bottom that says "All the Songs from the Motion Picture", later releases uses "Music from the Original Motion Picture Sound Track" with the same numbering and artwork as it did on a recent LP.
