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 and includes the Pete's Dragon float in the artwork.
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. It ended a sporadic run on 1996.
It was later revived at the California Adventure theme park and then on
to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
