Richie Rich and Casper sheet music [new exhibits]
Two exhibits for the price of one today! Before video games and smart phones, adults spent time in their homes playing music, and encouraging their children to learn instruments and play as well. Whether it was a simple recorder like I learned, a guitar, piano or organ, many homes had some sort of musical instrument.
With these instruments, you needed sheet music. Harvey Comics decided to capitalize on this, and publish some of the music they had developed for their 45rpm records as sheet music. Today, we have two examples, one featuring Richie Rich and the other Casper. I do not know if others were printed. It is interesting to note that the music inside is copyrighted 1972 Harvey Music, Inc., which is when the 45s were made, but the new cover art is copyrighted 1973 Harvey Records, Inc. Enjoy!
