Introduction to liner notes:
"The Whale Who Wanted To Sing At The Met"An opera in miniature from “Make Mine Music”
Produced by Walt Disney.Musical Director, Charles Wollott.Original Music by Ken Darby.Conducted by Robert Armbruster
Perhaps  never in all the history of music has so unique an opportunity been  presented to a singer as Walt Disney gave to Nelson Eddy in the title  role of “The Whale Who Wanted To Sing At The Met.”Doubtlessly, down  through the ages, numberless opera singers have often wished that they  could sing in all the voices of a production, but never had it happened,  except to Mr. Eddy in this unique instance.Mr. Eddy plays the role of Willie, a huge, happy-go-lucky whale, with a miraculous voice, individually or collectively.A  famous operatic impresario, Professor Tetti-Tatti, under the mistaken  impression that Willie has swallowed a bevy of opera singers - a la  Jonah - goes to sea in an expedition to rescue the singers. These  records tell the fascinating story of Tetti-Tatti’s expedition.
