Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Disney studio has long set a standard of excellence for its animated films and other classics, and it's easy sometimes to forget how much music and songs have contributed to the feel and success of those films, reaching all the way back to the 1930s, and with the revival of the studio's success in the 1990s, there's an impressive vault of good music and songs, a trend that's been added to as the Disney folks moved out into the world of modern and contemporary television, and then, of course, the company's famous theme parks, where rides are multimedia adventures. This single-disc set concentrates on the classic songs from Disney's pre-Pixar-styled golden age.
