Originally released as 78 RPM records. Capitol Records later re-released several of their titles in this double format in the 33 RPM LP form. These LPs were produced by Alan Livingston. A little info on Livingston and Captiol records from wikipedia:
"His initial assignment was to create a children's record library for the four-year old company, for which he created the "Bozo the Clown" character. He wrote and produced a popular series of storytelling record-album and illustrative read-along book sets beginning with the September 1946 release of "Bozo at the Circus." His record-reader concept, which enabled children to read and follow a story in pictures while listening to it, was the first of its kind. The Bozo image was a composite design of Livingston's, derived from a variety of clown pictures and given to an artist to turn into comic-book-like illustrations. Livingston then hired Pinto Colvig to portray Bozo on the recordings. Colvig, a former circus clown, was also the original voice of Walt Disney's Pluto, Goofy, Grumpy, Sleepy and many other characters. Billy May produced the music. The series turned out to be a smash hit for Capitol, selling over eight million albums in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Successful record sales led to a variety of Bozo-related merchandise and the first television series, "Bozo's Circus," starring Pinto Colvig on KTTV-Channel 11 (CBS) in Los Angeles in 1949. The character also became a mascot for the record company and was later nicknamed "Bozo the Capitol Clown."
Livingston wrote and produced many other children's recordings including products for Walt Disney; Walter Lantz's Woody Woodpecker; Bugs Bunny and all of the Warner Bros. characters. In the case of the latter, he wrote the 1951 pop hit "I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat" for Mel Blanc's Tweety Pie."
Other titles in this series included Woody Woodpecker, Tweety & Sylvester, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, Gerald McBoing-Boing & Rusty.

First let me say that I'm sorry about the quality of this sound file. I still have not figured out what went wrong. It is either a problem with my turntable, cassette deck or the cassette tapes that I copy my LPs onto to rip them to my PC. I've never had this problem until this LP. It figures it would be one that some folks have been waiting months for me to post. Hopefully I can either figure out what is wrong, and try to make a better rip later. Sorry again for the bad quality.
