This is a remastered CD of the highly sought-after Haunted Manion record album from 1969, the year the attraction opened in Disneyland. It was last available on cassette in the late in 1990's in The Disney Stores as a Halloween item titled, "A Spooky Night In Disney's Haunted Mansion". Disney Records' resident Wizard of Ahhs, Randy Thornton, discovered the original recordings for the 1969 LP in the archives and has digitally restored the original album that introduced young audiences in America to Disneyland's newest attraction, The Haunted Mansion. It includes the complete "Spooky Night" adventure (detailed below) with scenes and effects that never made it into the final attraction, the complete Disneyland version of "Grim, Grinning Ghosts", and a very special treat for Haunted Mansion fans - high resolution images of Disney artist and official Disney Legend Colin Campbell's original paintings that were used to create the storybook for the original album. As a special bonus, inside the cover/case is a mini version of the original storybook that was included with the 1969 album. It's gorgeous!
The record tells the story of a boy and girl out on a dark and stormy night who take refuge in the old deserted mansion. The boy's role is performed by Ron Howard who is best known for his roles as Opie from "The Andy Griffith Show" and Richie Cunningham on "Happy Days". Now, of course, Ron is a respected director of feature films. And as Madame Leota, Eleanor Audley - voice of Maleficent in "Sleeping Beauty" and the wicked stepmother in "Cinderella." Also featured as the narrator of the story is the legendary vocal artist Thurl Ravenscroft. Mr. Ravencroft is best known as the voice of Tony The Tiger for Kellog's Frosted Flakes commercials, but did many jobs for Disney as well. His deep baritone was often a key voice in songs heard in various attractions in Disneyland, and he was also the original announcer on the Disneyland Railroad who tells you where you're going and what you'll see. On this album, he's part of the quartet who sings the Haunted Mansion theme song "Grim, Grinning Ghosts" which plays briefly here. Also featured are Robin Lester as Karen, and Pete Renoudet as The Ghost Host.This is bound to be a very short run album, so don't miss this opportunity to own a classic Disney record in this archival form made especially for Disney fans and collectors.
