About the Album:
This is the reason box sets exist. This “beautifuly packaged three-CD box set” AMG gathers eight decade’s worth of songs from Disney movies, shorts, TV shows, and theme park music.
“Since the Disney catalog is in a state of constant change, this is the only place to get some songs that aren’t currently available; these days it’s a rare treat to hear Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmations…and Annette’s theme from The Monkey's Uncle” AZ and all in one place.
There are an abundance of classic songs, including When You Wish Upon a Star from Pinocchio, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, from Song of the South, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins, and the earworm of all earworms which plays incessantly at Disney theme parks – It’s a Small World After All. There’s also music from a myriad of Disney movie favorites, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Bambi, and Cinderella up through modern classics like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
The wide array of performers include Julie Andrews, Pearl Bailey, George Burns, Maurice Chevalier, Sean Connery, Kirk Douglas, Annette Funicello, Burl Ives, Angela Lansbury, Bette Midler, Roger Miller, Louis Prima, Helen Reddy, and Dick Van Dyke.
AZ “Disney buffs will love this set, although there are some popular songs missing.” AMG “Overall, The Music of Disney: A Legacy in Song proves how significant the music from Disney’s films and television shows were to popular music and popular culture in general.” AMG
