Record Comments:  This special preview album is a souvenir of the Press Preview Grand Opening that was held on June 30, 1974 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.  The record is enclosed in a standard jacket with no book pages.  It's one of three promotional records in the Wonderland Music Company catalog series, that includes The Music Of Mary Poppins on #WOND-1Bedknobs And Broomsticks on #WOND-2 and America Sings on #WOND-3.

The contents of this record are slightly different than the commercial release.  At about 7 minutes and 20 seconds in on America Sings, the song Who Shot The Hole In My Sombrero has some lyric changes.  "Was it Poncho from the Rancho?  Did he do this because I kiss his wife?" was changed to "I can't figure who'd pull that trigger.  You don't reckoned my old wife could be back in town?"  Both versions are sung by Rex Allen in different character voices. The full song can be found on Rex Allen Sings 16 Favorite Songs, #BV-3307.

Subject Notes:  America Sings is a Disney Theme Park attraction that first opened in June of 1974 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.  The attraction was housed in the rotating Carousel Theater, replacing The Carousel of Progress that moved to The Magic Kingdom in Florida.

The show was hosted by Burl Ives as Sam the Eagle and traveled through American history in song with animal animatronics.  The attraction closed in 1988, but some of the artifacts are now part of Splash Mountain.
