Mercury Records originally issued records from Alice in Wonderland in 1951 at the time of or slightly before the release of the film, and again in 1954 or 1955 as a part of their Childcraft line. Songs and narration were performed by Richard Hayes and Roberta Quinlan.
The Story of “Alice in Wonderland”
Issued in 1951 as a standard 78 RPM album (A89) with three 10” discs, and as a single 33⅓ RPM (MG-25096) disc. The cover of the album has exceptionally unusual art, especially for the time, and looks like it could be from a decade later. This set is what is referred to as the “complete score” in the campaign book, but it is essentially a storyteller.
Childcraft Songs from “Alice in Wonderland” CM-37
Issued in 1955, this 78 RPM record consists of 4 songs from Alice with accompanying narration, basically an abridged version of the album above.
An Australian release as a 78 RPM exists using the same sleeve just on a different weight of paper, however the labels on that version are quite different from the American version.
This 45 RPM version of the Childcraft Alice CM-37 is actually the B side of the Childcraft Pinocchio (non-Disney). But at least they used the Alice sleeve art on the back of the cardboard cover.
There is an additional Mercury record by Quinlan-Hayes that has narration and songs but is not part of any of the albums above. Mercury 5639 is a 78 RPM record with three of the eight songs contained on the full album, so not quite a storyteller but not just a single either. It is also available as a 45 RPM record.
There is also what appears to be a single of the title song “Alice in Wonderland” by Roberta Quinlan on the Mercury label, but to date I’ve only found it as a sample record, the kind usually sent to radio stations to be played on-air.
