The Snow Queen (1976 LP)
A little something from JimJeroo's shoebox of childhood nostalgia and bits of fluff, a dramatisation of the Hans Christian Anderson fable 'The Snow Queen', introduced by bearded Radio 2 kindly Uncle-type Brian Matthew.
Featuring some great little characters, nice music and some genuinely dark moments (the gnomes in particular used to scare the child's poop out of me), this one took me a good few years to track down after losing it to the place where most treasured childhood possessions fall foul to. My mum insists she didn't jumble sale it, but we both know she did. Either that or she gave it to my cousin Jeremy who ritualistically destroys anything he can't stuff into his mouth, the shit.
So pull up your blankie, watch the last bit of 'Puddle Lane' while mum makes that big mug of Ovaltine, and let this hour of limited edition orange vinyl (I'm not kidding) take you back to kid-dom for an hour...
From the sleeve (Contains practically every spoiler conceivable):
"On this record you can listen to one of Hans Christian Andersen's longest stories, called "The Snow Queen". It is packed with excitement and adventure. A little girl called Gerda and her friend, a boy named Kay, live with an old lady who looks after them and whom they call Granny. One winter's night they see through the window a beautiful lady who, granny tells them, is the Snow Queen, with a heart made of ice. Now kay falls under a magic spell cast by some wicked gnomes (the pant-filling ones) which turns him against Gerda. He grows horrid towards her and sends her away. The Snow Queen then re-appears and takes Kay away with her to her ice palace in the frozen North. Gerda does not know where he has gone, but sets out to find him, often falling into great danger herself. First, she travels down a river in a little boat until she is rescued by an old lady who pretends to be kind, but who is really a witch. Escaping from the witch's house, she is befriended by a talking raven, who flies with her on his back to the home of the reindeer. The reindeer in turn takes Gerda to meet Old Lady Lapp and then a good with called Witch Wiseone. Eventually Gerda arrives at the Snow Queen's Palace, guarded by fierce polar bears, but you will hear how she manages to get past them, enter the palace, and rescue Kay. Their troubles are still not over but, although the Snow Queen grows angry and chases them, the children manage to get back safely to their granny's cozy little home. We hope you will enjoy travelling along with Gerda on her thrilling adventures, and don't be frightened when you meet the polar bears. Gerda has a magic spell to keep them at bay."
