"THE ORANGE BIRD" (STER-3991 1971)

HERE'S ONE I'LL BET NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE HEARD, OR EVEN HEARD OF FOR THAT MATTER. THERE WAS ONE OTHER LP THAT RONNY HOWARD AND ROBBIE LESTER DID TOGETHER CALLED "THE STORY AND SONGS OF THE ORANGE BIRD" THAT WAS BASED ON THE ORANGE BIRD OF THE FLORIDA ORANGE JUICE COMMERCIALS. IT FEATURES ANITA BRYANT NARRATING AND SINGING. I WAS ABLE TO FIND A COPY OF IT ONLINE. SO I SHARE IT HERE WITH YOU NOW!!!

This is awesome! I used to have this record as a child (I was born in '73.) It was one of my favorites! That record disappeared probly 20+ years ago, and I thought I'd never see or hear the Little Orange Bird again. :( It's surprising how important these little things from our childhood become as we grow older. You made my day! I also managed to find scans of the entire book that came with the record. They are here: http://www.2719hyperion.com/2008/08/souvenirs-story-and-songs-of-orange.html. Thanx again!

Awesome. Thanks. I think my next big purchase, if I ever can afford one, will be a large bed scanner. It allows easier scans of Lp covers and the inside gatefold pages like these story LPs have.

Thank you SO much for posting this out here! I used to listen to this over and over again as a child and have thought about it often since I had a child of my own but I figured that I'd never see/hear it again. It brought back some very fond memories!!!
