Children’s Missionary Adventure Stories (Zondervan ZLP-638) 1966?
A light air of political in-correctness hangs over these dramatic re-enactment of adventurous missionary tales, including David Livingstone confronting angry savages (“No come further, or black man kill!”) and John Paton’s encounter with cannibals (“Me break-um white man’s head! Me smash him dead with club! We kill-um white man plenty quick!”). You can’t help but love that corny fake British accent on the Paton story. The organist deﬁnitely earns their pay on this one! Narrated and dramatized by Wendell P. Loveless and supporting cast. Big scary cover illustration of pouncing lion. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have narrowed down the year to probably 1966 as it is listed as number 9 on the Zondervan Top 10 Children’s LP’s as found in the September 3, 1966 Billboard Magazine p. 52.
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the front and rear cover photos.
