Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

At the height of Beatlemania, the Disney folks were teaching kids how to really swing with this soundtrack to their adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Of course, it's Phil Harris (the voice of everyone's favorite hipster bear Baloo) who steals the show with the original slacker anthem, "The Bare Necessities," but his scat match with an inspired Louis Prima on "I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)" is also not to be missed. Songwriters Richard and Robert Sherman--who clearly enjoyed playing the irony card on songs like "Trust in Me (The Python's Song)" and "That's What Friends Are For" (The Vulture Song)"--offer entertaining reminiscences about the project in a 12-minute bonus track. George Bruns's wonderful underscore, a couple early song demos, and two post-soundtrack Baloo numbers round out a collection that suggests, in the most charming way imaginable, that it really is a jungle out there. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of the Most Unique Disney Soundtracks Ever Oct. 2 2001
Format:Audio CD
What has always intrigued me most about this film was not the actual story, but the music. The score always seemed to stray a bit from the classic Disney instrumentals that abounded in films like "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty". It has a very gloomy, rainy feeling, but is never depressingly low or serious. It is a very honest and focused compliment to the film's visuals, resulting in some breathtaking sequences during the movie.
The soundtrack begins with "The Jungle Book"'s main title score, a very melodically intense opening to the film. It continues with other scores reflecting a variation on the same tone, presented in chronological order according to the events in the movie. Then the songs start to break in, including the unforgettable "The Bear Necessities" performed by Phil Harris (Baloo) and "I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song)". The CD concludes with an insightful ten minute interview with the Sherman Brothers, shedding some very interesting light on Walt Disney right before his death ("The Jungle Book" was released a year after his death)/ Also included are two remastered songs from the sequel record album "More Jungle Book" and two demo recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing Disney soundtrack Sept. 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
Words cannot describe about this soundtrack, but this reviewer will do his best to explain. The Jungle Book soundtrack is, quite simply, the most amazing Disney soundtrack I've ever heard. As a fan of the movie, I was astounded by the music, which is a mixture of old-fashioned classical and jazz music. To me, music like this is rare. Sure, you may have heard better in a previous Disney soundtrack, but this is beautiful music.
There are a few songs that made me love the soundtrack. Of course, anyone will recongize the infamous "The Bare Nesscities (sp?)" that features Phil Harris, along with "Trust In Me" and the vulture song "We Are Friends". These tracks are all unique, but the best one that touches my soul very deeply is "My Own Home", featuring Darleen Carr, an actress that definitely had a talent for singing. That track, to me, is the best one on there, because it is classic Disney and the absoletuely beautiful voice (done by Darleen Carr) is simply haunting, but beautiful. The music is pure brillance in "My Own Home" as well, thus making it as my favorite track on the soundtrack.
A lot of people believe that the soundtrack for "The Jungle Book" is most definitely pure Disney magic. I have to agree with them. It is highly recommanded, for Disney fans, to own this soundtrack, for it not only contains the hit songs that made the movie a success, but it also includes a couple of unreleased hits, two demos, and a 12-minute interview with the composers behind this masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome! April 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
The original recordings for making the movie were used to make this CD. This CD is yet another stellar masterpiece of historical preservation, overseen by producer Randy Thornton, whose father worked for Disney (you can see his name in some of the live action movie credits). The music has been digitally repaired and reassembled, deleted portions replaced. Randy is really devoted to making these CD's special and throws in all the extras such as an interview with the fabulous composers "the Sherman Brothers" who wrote 5 of the songs. They composed many many songs for Disney over the years like Mary Poppins, and non-Disney like "Chitty CHitty Bang Bang". The composer of the beautiful underscore was George Bruns who wrote the music for the Pirates of the Caribbean" (with X. Atencio writing the lyrics). The song "Bare Neccesities" was composed by Terry Gilkyson and sung by Phil Harris. There are 2 songs from an old Jungle book story album that are not actually in the movie, and have not been released in about 30 years. Randy also added 2 previously unreleased demos of songs that did not make it into the film to give you a feel for the original production process and the filmmakers search to get it right. Remember that if you have seen the movie, you only heard snippets of many of these songs, many were overwhelmed with dialogue. But in this CD, the producer engineered the dialogue out so you can hear the original recording as it was made to be, simply awesome. Louis Prima sung in his Scat style using his gift for improv on one of the songs here. Nice interior 15 page booklet with lyrics, great art, and liner notes too. There is so much value here at over 1 hour of material that I would have easily paid twice as much.
