Snow White 'Disney Picture Disc' LP

This Snow White 12" 33⅓ rpm record was issued in 1981, part of the Disney Picture Disc series of albums. Disneyland/Vista Records #3101, US. Includes the eight songs from the film plus the Overture and Finale. Identical recording as found on the 1963 and 1968 DQ-1201 album releases (seen in another post). Total run time under 24 minutes.

SIDE ONE depicts the washing scene with Snow White looking on as the Dwarfs clean up around the tub.

SIDE TWO incorporates a collage of imagery from the Snow White story.

SIDE TWO copyright markings from 1981 "© MCMLXXXI WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS 3101".

The album sleeve has a circular opening on the front.

The sleeve back does not contain an opening but rather an illustration of the disc's SIDE TWO.

Although this Snow White album was issued in 1981, the sleeve has a 1980 copyright.

From Disney historian Dave Smith: The phonograph record picture disc of Snow White was released in 1981 — there were 10 others from that and the following year: Pinocchio, Lady and the Tramp, Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Fox and the Hound, Cinderella, Bambi, Mickey's Christmas Carol, Peter Pan, and Mickey Mouse Disco.
