Record Comments:  This picture disc record was originally sold at the park as a musical souvenir in 1973.  Five different records were issued from 1973 to 1977 and are numbered DE-1 on black vinyl, WE-4 on black and clear vinyl, WD-4 on black vinyl and 5-WD on clear vinyl.

At first glance, all issues appear to be very similar.  The most notable differences are the 1973 and 1977 issues where both the artwork and music are different.  Other subtle differences across issues include the use of black and clear vinyl, the notation of "SIDE ONE" vs. "PART 1" and the spelling of the park's title as "Disneyland's" on DE-1, "Walt Disney World" on WE-4, "Disneyland" on WD-4 and "Disney's" on 5-WD.

Besides the blue corner edges, the artwork on the front cardboard insert is plain.  There is no additional text or artwork behind the record.  This issue was pressed on black vinyl.


Subject Notes: The Main Street Electrical Parade is a Disney attraction and made its official debut on June 17, 1972.  It was originally featured live on Main Street U.S.A. at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California.  However, the music was first heard in The Electrical Water Pageant that made its debut on Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon in Walt Disney World on October 26, 1971.  The parade's synthesizer music was based on a piece called Baroque Hoedown, by Perrey and Kingsley, with Disney themes woven in as a medley.

The Main Street Electrical Parade ended a sporadic run on November 25, 1996.  Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris and Disneyland Tokyo have had their versions of the parade running at different times as well.  The parade returned to California for a short time in July of 2001 and then again in August of 2019.
