A Child’s First Birthday

Frank Luther

Decca Records.

Frank Luther, one of the most-recorded voices of the 20th century, who cut virtually every type of song in formats ranging from Edison 78s to stereo Lps, appeared with.

The Story of Babar, Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin Songs, Bible Stories for Children, Tuneful Tales, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Fairy Tales were just a few of the albums. Although Frank continued to be a popular radio tenor, even taking time out to travel to California to star in a low budget musical feature film, High Hat, released by Imperial Pictures some months after it was filmed – the field which truly made him a “star” was children’s records.

In the late 1950s, Frank Luther made albums for a variety of labels. His long time label,Decca, even bought a 1959 stereo album Frank produced independently, “Children’s Sing-Along,” but much of his product appeared on educational labels. By 1963, he was in charge of producing a line of children’s albums for United Artists. He later joined forces with Pickwick International to do educational products.
