The Living Constitution Of The United States
Kayden Records/Union Oil Company
“A timely, inspiring record – with a stirring, patriotic musical score” ~ Cover notes
Another historical/histrionic patriotic record, this time in 1961.
This one’s fun because it has veteran voice actor Marvin Miller – voice of Robby the Robot and others – doing the narration, as well as other familiar-sounding, if not famous voices (William Conrad, later of 70’s TV show Cannon is one).
It breaks down the articles of the Constitution and has people acting out famous quotes or passages relevant to the topic, with lush orchestration.
I think this may have been a give-away at Union service stations, as it says Union Oil Company at the bottom of the front cover. What’s an oil company doing on a patriotic piece of propaganda, anyway?
