    Inspired by the imminent CD release of Pete's Dragon, here's another poll. Actually, I want all of these, but if I had to choose, it would be Bedknobs first! ;D What about you?

    If they were out, I'd by every single one of those albums in a flash! However, the one that I would look forward the most would be Bedknobs. Pete's Dragon would be right up there...and we get it! This is so exciting!! :D

    Good Poll!

    I, too would line up to buy all of these in a flash. "Ranking" any Disney music is very hard for me to do, especially the older material since I love it all so much, but here is my preference order for the soundtracks you mentioned (which may be partially influenced by how much I like the films themselves):

    1) Song of the South
    2) So Dear to My Heart
    3) Bedknobs and Broomsticks
    4) Babes In Toyland
    5) Summer Magic

    I would also like to nominate In Search of the Castaways. I'm not sure if it is officially considered a "musical" since it's mainly a Jules Verne adventure story and there are just a few songs, but the songs that are in the film are all great!

    David

    Tough, tough decision, but If I had to rank which I wanted most they would be:

    Bedknobs & Broomsticks (complete with entire PORTOBELLO ROAD sequence music)
    The Happiest Millionaire (complete with overture & intermission, which were left off the original LP)
    Babes in Toyland
    Summer Magic
    The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band
    Song of the South

    I'm very hopeful that Bedknobs will someday see the light of day in my local CD store. So I'll push for my second choice... Summer Magic. May it flitter this way soon. :)

    Boy, if I had a magical Bedknob, I'd surely be a Millionaire by the middle of August ;). But shhhh, it's a secret!

    I'm still tryin to find out who wrote the magnificent score to WDW's Timekeeper! I've asked WDW workers, called Walt Disney Records in California, webmasters of various theme park music sites, etc. and NOBODY knows. I believe Bruce Broughton wrote the score for the Disneyland Paris version "From Time to Time", but the score is different in the WDW version. Could anyone help me? (hint, hint, Randy :)

    Thanks in advance

    We certainly need all of these soundtracks, and I'm not even going to try and rank them; I just picked the one most wanted, and that has to be "The Song of the South." I think that it's such a shame, the controversy that has befallen this classic film--I remember Brer Rabbit and the tar baby from childhood(still have my original copy of the comic book). If the viewpoints of a few are going to prevent the release of this film in this country, can we at least have the soundtrack?!? Michael Zielski.

    I just had to vote vor bedknob - not only do I love the movie and the song ... but is stars Angela Lansbury - so no question here!!

    By the way: did you know: she made her finger imprints in concrete during the EuroDisney opening in 1992 and they are now finally on display in the Walt Disney Studios!



    Yours
    Dirk

    Like most of you I want them all, but had to choose Bedknob first. When I was a child we had the soundtrack album and I must have played it to death. Just from reading this topic I'm now humming Portobello Road. :) Unfortunately, like all those stories out there about little boys & their baseball cards, my mother got rid of all my Disney albums a few years ago. I found out the hard way when I went to her church yard sale and found them there just as someone was purchasing the whole lot. Probably for a little bit of nothing also! I would have gladly written the church a big check to have those albums back. :'(

    I'd support all of these films as CD soundtracks, but I would especially like to see the REAL soundtrack of BABES IN TOYLAND on CD, since the album was not the soundtrack, but an echo-ey "re-creation." This is of historic importance for several reasons: the stars (Annette, Ed Wynn and Ray Bolger), the classic Herbert score and the fact that this was, good or bad, Walt Disney's first feature musical.

    Excellent choice Grack! "Castle in Spain" is one of my favorite songs from the compilation CDs. Quite a fun musical indeed. :D

    Babes in Toyland is scheduled for release on DVD this fall, so maybe a soundtrack cd will follow (ala TRON).

    (fingers crossed)

    Aw c'mon Sharon! I bet I know that you voted with me, for The Happiest Millionaire! Sherman Brothers at their finest. Great score, great cast, great movie!

    P.S. Randy, you are just too cool, my man. Up to your old tricks and we just wouldn't have it any other way.

    Thanks for the tip!

    BTW, I don't know if you ever saw my message posted just before Trent's original site went south, but I posted a note thanking you for making good on a CD of SpectroMagic. I had been after you (actually WDR) for years to make that magnificent piece of music available. And, even though I didn't see your name attached to the released product, I'm sure you helped move things along. Thanks for your efforts and for giving us hints along the way, keeping our hopes alive! Thank you. Very much! ;)
