Sold: LITTLE OZ STORIES Queer Visitors L Frank Baum Bolger Record LP, Leo & Diane Dillon Art

$45.00 $35.00


Here is a very unusual Wizard of Oz record (LP) entitled “Little Oz Stories”, “Visitors from the Land of Oz in America”, read by Ray Bolger.  It is based on L. Frank Baum’s “Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz” comic strip published in the Sunday Record Herald newspaper in 1904 and 1905. In addition to the Queer Visitors being read by Bolger, this includes a long writeup on the strip by Oz scholar Michael Patrick Hearn on the back, music by Don Heckman, and best of all…An incredible fantasy cover by award winning children’s illustrators Leo and Diane Dillon! The cover features not only the Scarecrow, Tinman, Jack Pumpkinhead, and the Wogglebug, but also Santa Claus (somehow Baum fit him into the story as well).

Cover art copyright 1982, 12″ 33 1/3 record by Caedmon, copyright 1983. In excellent condition sealed in plastic, not sure if factory sealed or not.
