The Orange Bird

My wife and I were able to make it out to the Pasadena City College swap meet yesterday morning. It was great to have the light traffic and reduced smog of a Sunday morning/holiday weekend.

When I happened upon Disney's Orange Bird record, it brought back memories of going to Disneyworld for the first time in 1976. The graphics on the record are pretty amazing with the Monorail exiting the Contemporary Hotel, a Tiki totem Area and the Orange Bird itself. However, the record was in poor condition and the Orange Bird story and songs by Anita Bryant sucked. Later that night I found out that the Orange Bird has an unsurprisingly big following in Japan complete with pins and t-shirts.

Also bought a still-sealed soundtrack of The Dove for two quarters. John Barry was the selling point. When I first listened to it...I said this sounds a little like the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack before putting the two and two together.
