Album cover.

Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol is a record published by Peter Pan Records. It contains a studio recording of a rendition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and The Fir-Tree and The Little Match Girl, both by Hans Christian Andersen. The cast is not credited individually, only as "The Peter Pan Players and Chorus," while the music is credited to Herb Davidson and Charlotte Sanders. Although the album doesn't have a copyright date, it is estimated to be published in the early 1970s based on its catalog number (8110).

Like with so many of Peter Pan records, the album's art was created by George Peed. The cover of the album can be punched out and bent away from the album cover to be stood up as a holiday decoration, though it's just blank cardboard on the other side.

My family owned this album and I can remember listening to it as a child in the late 1980s, but I haven't heard it since. As a child, this was my first encounter with each of the three stories. I also really enjoyed the album art.

Status

I do not own this album.
