PERRI, THE LITTLE GIRL SQUIRREL
Blog
Posted on Apr 26 2010 by Greg
It hasn't gotten much attention, but some classic Disney records of the 50s, 60s and 70s are popping up on amazon.com as downloads.

One of them is Walt Disney's Perri, A Story with Songs. It was originally issued in 1957 as one of the first Disneyland Storyteller albums and was available with or without a full-color book.



"Perri" was Walt Disney's only "True-Life Fantasy," signifying that it was a totally fictitious story told through animal footage with narration but with choral songs in the style of Bambi. It had a "dream sequence," and a romantic angle. It really was amazing what the editors could put together to give the impression that these animals are acting and reacting.

Anyway, the record tells the story with narration by the beloved Mouseketeer Jimmie Dodd, who sings two songs, one a duet with Darlene Gillespie (who has her own lovely solo, "Now to Sleep).
It is richly orchestrated by and his chorus, a practice that became too cost prohibitive in a few years. While it's rather short, it's a fine listening experience and probably comes as a revelation to many who may not have even known it existed. It's also very inexpensive. At the current cost of $3.61 its actually cheaper than the 1957 retail price!

Trivia note: Actress Peri Gilpin of Frasier said she was named after the squirrel in the movie, even though someone forgot a "r."

Many thanks to Jim Hollifield for letting me know this album was available.
