Oodles Of Doodles CCXXX

Here's a pretty rare doodle from the Mercury label. Look close and you should be able to pick out quite a few characters here from popular children's tales. There's Pinocchio, Davy Crockett, the Big Bad Wolf, Jack & his beanstalk, Robin Hood and a few others. None of those characters appear on this record, though. The record is Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe & Legend Of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving (Mercury SLP 114). There's no artist credited here, but the cover promises that each story is "dramatically enacted, accompanied by a 40 piece orchestra." Other than these doodles, the back of the record features little shots of all the other records in the series. The one I wish I had was the very last one listed, featuring Flight Of Friendship 7 & The Astronaut. You can grab pictures of some of the other records in the series, as well as some MP3 files here.
