Babes Are Not What They Seem

As often happens with vintage records, the contents in the sleeve may not match the info on the sleeve.  This one was at least pretty close.

The sleeve promised a Disney record, "Walt Disney's Babes in Toyland" (which would have precluded a share, had it been an actual Disney record).  However, the record itself was a 78rpm of the Peter Pan Orchestra and Chorus.  The two sides were sorta related to Babes in Toyland, with "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" and "Little Tin Soldier and Little Toy Drum".  Pretty good songs, cool sleeve, and a reason to use the Audacity function to change tempo, since my turntable does not have a 78rpm option.

For what it's worth, "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" is my hands-down favorite part of the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular.

This is an old record, and there may be some minor skips and pops.
