Hi Russell,
  I've seen reference to this BABAR recording. Offered on an
opera website as a CD (I assume CD-R) or mp3 download.  They state
" Poulenc's 'Babar, the little elephant', narrated by Noel Coward with the composer at the piano. It was issued by 
a small British label in 1959."
Other source indicate Coward recorded this with Poulenc, but do not give any details.

Does anyone have the COWARD BIO-BIBLIOGRAPHY - perhaps they have label/catalog info ?????

If it is "Dolphin", probably not the same company which issued the musical theater recordings.

Anyone know if the subject DOLPHIN label was part of DOUBLEDAY BOOKS?
A number of their cabaret albums were reissued by DRG Records.
Don't know if DRG is still in business, perhaps they know the history....

Best wishes, Thomas.

Was Dolphin the label that had Story of Babar, read by Noel Coward with
Poulenc at the piano? (Not that I've ever encountered that record.)
