Comments: This record is the first in the Story Teller series
on the Disneyland label.
It is also one of the only records to feature the voice of Walt Disney. The contents of this record are the same as
WDL-4004, Walt Disney Takes You To
Disneyland, but with
shorter track versions and additional narration by Cliff Edwards as Jiminy Cricket.
This record was
also issued without the circle-art border and a similar
illustrated scene of Walt and Jiminy at the Disneyland train
station. The variation record includes the same catalog
number and was issued in both 12" 33 1/3 RPM and a two-disc
45 RPM version.
Number: ST 3901 A 20 ST / ST 3901B 20 ST
