Fidelio ATL4102 (mono LP)
Issued 1964 – recorded?

Coupled with:
Mussorgsky – Night on the Bare Mountain
Rimsky-Korsakov – Capriccio Espagnole
“Danzig Philharmonic Orchestra, Felix Heiss”

Felix Heiss and the Danzig Philharmonic Orchestra are probably pseudonyms, not unexpectedly from a Barrington-Coupe record label. I’ve included the two recordings in question (sound quality is poor, though) and perhaps someone can identify the actual performers. But it’s Slobodskaya’s wonderful narration of the Prokofiev that’s the real treat. The record is worn and tatty, and not in great sound to begin with, so I’ve done my best to remove thumps and bumps, while keeping the record listenable.
