1970 Swedish 'Snövit' Read-Along Record LLP-15 (Kerstin Franzen)

A Snow White storybook record issued in Sweden. Vinyl disc, 33 13 rpm. Includes 24-page book. Disneyland Record label. Catalog no. LLP-15. Printed in Finland. Album cover marked copyright 1970 by Walt Disney Productions. Disc imprinted ℗ 1971 Producer Tommy Halldén.

The record is part of the "Read-Along" series: "Look, Listen, Read, Sing" (Titta, Lyssna, Läs, Sjung), a counterpart to the English-language "See, Hear, Read" series. The album cover displays the same Snow White artwork used in the 1956 US soundtrack record, no. WDL-4005 & 1968 no. DQ-1201.

The recording features female narrator, Kerstin Franzen, with no other voice actors. A musical tone lets readers know when to turn the page in the booklet. At the end of Side B are two songs, Hej-Hå (Heigh-Ho) performed by Rasmus and Nu Visslar vi ett Slag (Whistle While You Work) sung by Anni-Frid Lyngstad (of ABBA fame).

Sample pages. This artwork was seen in the 1948 Snow White Little Golden Book.
