Here's "a magnificent full-color illustrated book and long-playing record" of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (ST-3801, 1971), my favorite spooky Disney short, which was originally part of the 1949 package feature The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and later parted out as its own short under the title The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Another Washington Irving penned story, The Legend of Rip Van Winkle, is also on the album.
Unfortunately the second-hand copy pictured here, while having all its pictures intact, is missing one key element: the record! So while I haven't actually heard this adaptation, the great song that Brom Bones sings at the Halloween party to scare poor Ichabod, "The Headless Horseman", sung by Thurl Ravenscroft, is available for download from I-Tunes.
