Not Thurl

Thurl appeared on so many Disney records that it would be difficult to list them all. Rather than do that, this page will highlight some of the best places to hear him. Thurl sang on many recordings, sometimes solo, other times as part of a group. He also narrated quite a few. Here is a list of some of the LP records that feature Thurl. Currently, I do not have a list of singles or Little Long Play story records that feature Thurl.
