MDS00174

Mr. Rumple Bumple  “Indestructable Records for Children”   (1948)  Never seen this series of children’s story records before.  It’s a nice package with great graphics and colored vinyl.   Anyone old enough to remember hearing of Mr. Bumple?!

Dr. Suze and Lewis Carroll

Carl de Suze reading stories from the Walrus and Carpenter and Jabberwocky  Pathways of Sound Records

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.
“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
      He chortled in his joy.
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

A good egg

humpty 001

Humpty Dumpty’s Album for Little Children  Bud Collyer  RCA Records (1958)  Bud Collyer supplied the voices of both Superman and his alter ego Clark Kent. A highlight of every Superman episode was the moment when Clark Kent transformed into Superman, an effect which Collyer conveyed by shifting voices while speaking the immortal phrase “This looks like a job for Superman!”. (Collyer’s voice deepened by an octave while making the transition from one identity to the other.)  Collyer went on to host Beat the Clock, and in 1956, became the host of To Tell the Truth on CBS.
