Little Nipper Giant Storybook Record Album

The large complete storyteller record, called the Little Nipper Giant Storybook Record Album (could they not come up with a shorter name?), was issued in 78, 45 and 33 ⅓ RPM formats.  
The records were located on the inside covers in special paper sleeves that were pasted to the covers.
The 78 version almost always has significant damage to these sleeves as the records are so heavy.  
The 45 version records are much smaller and lighter, and as such these sleeves are almost always intact.  
The 33 ⅓ version has a single record that is about the same size and weight of a 78, so the single sleeve on the inside front cover is also almost always quite distressed too.  So the moral is:  If you are looking for a very nice copy, go for a 45 set.

Alice was the first (and only) Disney storyteller to use this new large book format rather than the familiar album format.  Art by the incomparable Mel Crawford.

Very cool find! I'm curious as to what the audio is like; for some reason, it's hard to find audio rips of the records they made for this film. I do know that Kathryn Beaumont reprised her role for both records, and the scripts differ slightly.
