Busch Gardens Record Album c1978

This is a 12 inch, 33 RPM record album from Busch Gardens, issued during the years that the park was in their “The Dark Continent” era where they focused on African animals and culture. It’s undated but likely comes from the late 1970s.

It contains studio versions of performances from four bands that regularly played at the theme park: The Sheiks of Morocco, The Belly Dancer Band, Busch Country and Bavarian Colony Band. As can be seen in the credits, the bands had crossover musicians which is not unusual in bands and other music groups that perform in attractions such as Busch Gardens, Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.
