1st Pressing Extremely Rare Winnie The Pooh Songs 7" Records - Antique:
This set belongs to my dad's cousin who received the gift as a child and I'm helping her sell it.
Although no guarantees are implied as I am not a record collector, but based on limited research conducted and viewing similar sale listings, I believe this could very likely be a 1st pressing and one of the very early Winnie The Pooh products sold. Purportedly, thecover shows some of the earliest Slesinger adaptations of EH Shepard's illustrationsand, perhaps for the first time ever, shows Pooh in his trademark red shirt.
Songs are performed by tenor Frank Luther with violin, clarinet and piano accompaniment.
Records credit all songs to A.A. Milne - H. Frasier - Simson. Simson is misprinted as Simpson on 222-ASquare octavo with circular picture label affixed to front panel, housing three 78 RPM vinyl 7" inch records.
