I believe this is it!  Haven't listened to the soundtrack all the way
through yet, but it is a Tiffany-Stahl production.  

Regarding the rest of the soundtrack, I think this could easily be the
complete soundtrack since the film is only 68 minutes long, seems it should
fit on 8 - 16 inch sides, averaging less than 10 minutes per side at 33 rpm.

Very cool!




I don't believe this is OT at all.  Try this 1929 film of the same name...
They only seem to list one song from the film, PALS FOREVER, which should
help you confirm.  But it does mention a Tiffany-Stahl Production, which
might be a clue.  The search is on to find the rest of the soundtrack.
