OT: tracing publication history of children's record

I was in Australia in the early 1960s (and New Zealand
in the late 1950s but that is too early). I have a
distinct recollection of hearing the record, almost
certainly at school, but possibly at home. I can
almost hear the words to the "I like pancakes" song.
1961 seems about the right year, I doubt if would have
been any later than 1962, but it may have been 1960
(which I think puts your record out of the picture).
If it was at home that I heard it, it would have been
on a borrowed record as I'm fairly certain that we
never actually had it (we did have lots of story
records - usually with a background of classical
music) but I'll ask my mother and sister when I see
them for their memories - they should be visiting next
weekend. You never know, we may have owned the record
and still have it (but I doubt it). If you like I can
ask on the Australian school librarians list - most of
its members seem to be about my age but it seems to be
having problems at the moment.
