    I recently found this CD at a WhereHouse and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.

    This is from 1988 - NOT the common recent soundtrack re-release!!
    Title: WALT DISNEY'S BAMBI

    (based on the book by Felix Salten. Music by Frank Churchill and Edward Plumb. Lyrics by Larry Morey. Narrated by Richard Kiley. Made by Disneyland Records and Tapes - cat# CD-009. Some nice features: The front insert booklet is actually a full-color picture-book so you can follow along with the story as it is read to you. Also includes an interview with Walt Disney!)

    It also saids "Celebrations Series" Plus Disneyland records and tapes on the back (which is the same as the old read-a-longs that had the red cassettes to go along with them.

    Does anyone know if there were any others in this series, or why this was realeased? Here is a picture of it MIP which is the same cover art as the one I have:

    Hi Caitlin-

    I have the same CD you do. I'm not sure, but I think I found it in the Kids' section of Sam Goody's years and years and years ago. The interview about the voices of Bambi and Thumper are priceless.

    Besides the Bambi CD, I also have the Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs CD, which again, is the story, songs, 24 pages of full-color art, plus historical interviews (Walt Disney, Adriana Caselotti, Ward Kimball). It also includes "Music In My Soup." Copyright is 1987.

    I don't know if these were the only 2 in the Celebration Series or if I just haven't found any more.

    Hope that's helpful!

    -Sharon-

    I think that the "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" story and songs CD narrated by Christopher Plummer was also in the Celebration series. I think it was just those 3 CD's though.

    Thanks guys . . .I just listened to it (I bought it last night) I LOVE IT ! ! ! ! I tell you if you run across it, buy it! It does have narration, but mostly the cd is movie dialog, and it is great stuff.

    I don't know if anyone has those little red tapes/records and the read-a-longs, but most of them have completely different dialog (the ones that come to mind currently are Mary Poppins *shutters* and Pete's Dragon)

    Sharon- How do you like the Snow White cd?

    Anyone heard the Many Adventures of Winnie-The-Pooh??

    THANKS! ;D

    Caitlin-

    I like the Snow White CD well enough...the story is a classic and the music has always been great, IMHO. The interviews are what do it for me though....Adrianna talks about how she got the role, Ward talking about the movie premiere, etc. I think it was the first time I had heard the unreleased song, so that was "special" for me too.

    I've never seen the Winnie The Pooh one...but now that I know to look for it....

    The Winnie the Pooh cd is quite nice, using the new cast from The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Jim Cummings does a great job as Pooh, and Christopher Plummer is also an excellent narrator.

    One interesting factoid is that on most modern compilations (i.e Classic Disney) they will use these versions of the songs, not the originals. Jim Cummings does sound very similar though, so sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference.

    Ok so I was listening to my Mary Poppins CD tonight and realized that that cd also contains an interview. Now besides the 3 cds meantioned and MP are there any other Soundtrack-ish Cds with interviews on them?

    Also the Cd is has on the spine Cd-009, while all the newer cds I have are 6XXXX-X, ya, low number.

    You know what? I think i DO have that Winnie The Pooh CD, but I got mine as a Japanese release. No booklet, no longbox holder...just a regular CD.

    I made a boo-boo with "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" CD; it's not part of the Celebration series. I guess it's only "Snow White" and "Bambi" that are.

    Although I do like the Pooh CD, I am really aching for the original Sterling Holoway versions! I don't know why they haven't released them before. Even the Japanese versions use the new Jim Cummings recordings.

    Also, Sharon, does your Japanese Pooh CD have the story and songs?

    Ben-

    Yup...story and song, with Christopher Plummer, Jim Cummings, etc. Copyright 1989, Pony Canyon.

    BTW, anyone know WHY they don't know the Sebastian Cabot/Sterling Holloway versions anymore???

    I got that Story and Songs from Bambi cd years ago as well, since at that time, there was very little material from Bambi available on cd. The Sherman Brothers interview for the Mary Poppins soundtrack appeared on the original cd ('89/'90)? release as well as the CSS series follow-up in '97. The 1st cd release of The Jungle Book in '90 had a different interview w/ the Shermans as well and it also appeared on the CSS edtion from '97.
