Editorial Reviews

Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture digital soundtrack for Disney's 'Saving Mr. Banks' and the 'Saving Mr. Banks' 2-Disc Deluxe Edition on December 10, 2013. Thomas Newman composed and conducted the original score. 'Saving Mr. Banks' will release in U.S. theaters on December 13, 2013, limited, and open wide on December 20, 2013.

One of the most respected film composers, Newman has scored over 50 films. He has been nominated for ten Academy Awards with nine in the Best Original Score category for 'The Shawshank Redemption,' 'Little Women,' 'Unsung Heroes,' 'American Beauty,' 'Road to Perdition,' 'Finding Nemo,' 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events,' 'The Good German,' 'Wall-E,' and 'Skyfall.' Newman won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for The Living Proof from 'The Help.'

Newman said, 'The rare opportunity of writing music for a movie about the making of Mary Poppins was impossible to ignore. The fact that it could provide emotional content in relief of the struggles that the Sherman brothers and Walt Disney endured was reason enough to take on the challenge. Like the story itself, the music is at times joyous and hopeful and other times, full of despair and nagging regret. All by way of England and America in 1961, with stops along the way to rural Australia in 1906. What more could anyone ask for...?'

The soundtrack also features the songs 'Chim Chim Cher-ee,' 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,' and 'Let's Go Fly a Kite' performed by Jason Schwartzman (as Richard Sherman) and B.J. Novak (as Robert Sherman) as they 'demo' the songs for P. L. Travers. Richard Sherman served as Music Consultant for the film.

Director John Lee Hancock said, 'The songs are so terrific. The fact that we still hum them and sing them and know them immediately speaks to the genius of the Sherman brothers.'

First released in 1964, the Mary Poppins original motion picture soundtrack featured 14 original songs by legendary Disney songwriters and composers Richard and Robert Sherman. The soundtrack was the #1 album for 14 consecutive weeks in 1965, maintaining the #1 position that year longer than the Beatles (Beatles' 65, Beatles VI, and the Help! soundtrack), Elvis Presley (Roustabout soundtrack), The Rolling Stones (Out of Our Heads) and The Sound of Music soundtrack. The Mary Poppins film garnered 13 Academy Award nominations and won five Oscars, two of which the Sherman brothers received for 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' and the film's original musical score.

Showcasing the musical talents of Oscar-winning legend Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins), beloved actor-comedian Dick Van Dyke (Bert), British comedian David Tomlinson (Mr. Banks) and the Sherman brothers, the second disc revisits five unforgettable favorites including 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,' 'Chim Chim Cher-ee,' 'A Spoonful of Sugar' and 'Feed The Birds.' Also included are four previously unreleased pre-demo recordings performed by the Sherman brothers: 'The Pearly Song (Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious), 'Cim Chim Cher-ee,' 'Tuppence a Bag [Feed the Birds (Tuppence a Bag)] and 'Let's Go Fly a Kite.'

Richard Sherman added, 'Walt loved that song, 'Feed the Birds.' He knew that was the keynote of what we had in 'Mary Poppins,' the message that it doesn't take much to give love. And that's what Bob and I were saying without saying it in those words. It doesn't cost much to buy a bag of bread crumbs. We had touched Walt with this very spiritual note. Every once in a while, he would call us up and say play that. He didn't even have to say, 'Feed the Birds.' He would say play it and we would go to his office and play it for him.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Mr. Banks - Original Soundtrack December 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Saving Mr. Banks" is a wonderful soundtrack worthy of a listen and a purchase. The film explores Walt Disney and the making of "Mary Poppins". As such, there are a number of songs performed by the cast - this includes "Let's Go Fly a Kite", a fun song that's my personal favorite on the album. As a bonus, you also get many of the famous tunes as performed by Julie Andrews from "Mary Poppins", such as "A Spoonful of Sugar" and "Chim Chim Cher-ee". Also included are pre-demos of the songs, performed by songwriter Richard M. Sherman.

But the real treat here is Thomas Newman's original score for the film. Mr. Newman is a legend among film fans, having worked on the music for films like "The Shawshank Redemption", "Road to Perdition", "Finding Nemo", "Skyfall", and even the main theme for HBO's "The Newsroom". I wouldn't say "Saving Mr. Banks" is the very best work Newman has ever done, but it's pretty darn close. This score will no doubt earn him his 12th Oscar nomination - I hope he finally wins, he deserves it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious December 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The much-loved Disney feature Mary Poppins celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since the world first learned the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, or were first able to hear the worst Cockney accent in cinematic history courtesy of Dick Van Dyke, but it’s true, and the legacy and popularity of the film remains as strong today as it was in 1964. The new film Saving Mr. Banks, directed by John Lee Hancock, tells two parallel stories. Firstly, it charts how the film Mary Poppins was made, with the irascible English spinster P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) traveling from her home in London to Los Angeles, where she is wooed mercilessly by no lesser figure that Walt Disney himself (Tom Hanks), in an attempt to secure the rights to her book, which she is loathe to give up. Secondly, and possibly most importantly, it explores in flashback Travers’ childhood in rural Australia, and how her relationship with her loving, caring, but hopelessly drunk and irresponsible father (Colin Farrell) help inspired her work, and her famous umbrella-wielding nanny.

The music of Mary Poppins is, of course, as important and well-loved at the film, and so obviously composer Thomas Newman had a very important part to play in the film about its creation. With the legendary songs of Richard M. Sherman and the late Robert B. Sherman looming large in the background, and featuring prominently in several scenes in the film, Newman took an important decision and intentionally avoided quoting any of their melodies in his score itself, instead concentrating on the emotional aspect of Travers’ life story, and leaving the legendary music of the Shermans to speak for itself.

Format:Audio CD
There are some “soundtrack” recordings – the ones that have the “score”, not the ones composed of pop songs “featured” in a film – that work best if you have seen the related film. That’s why I am often hesitant to review STs for films I have not seen, and why my reviews may bee different from those who have seen the film. In the case of “Saving Mr. Banks”, the full enjoyment requires that you, not only see the new (as I write this) Tom Hanks-Emma Thompson film, but that you revisit (or experience for the first time) the original “Mary Poppins” film from 1964 (particularly the brilliant newly restored version – see my five-star review on Amazon). Trust me; it’s worth it to go these extra steps. With those steps behind you, this SMB Cd will make a lot more sense.

Disney has released two version of the SMB soundtrack: A single- disc version and the 2-disc “Deluxe Version” that I’m reviewing here. (Note that Amazon has policy of grouping various configurations of CDs together so, when reading a review here, look to see which product the reviewer is discussing.)

The Deluxe package consists of 2 CD. The first runs 46 minutes and has 31 tracks, including the “score” by composer Thomas Newman, three “excepts” of Mary Poppins songs (by the Sherman Brothers) as sung in the film at key moments (though the “Supercalifragilistic…….” excerpt lasts just five seconds!), and two recordings (Ray Charles’ instrumental “One Mint Julep”; the Dave Brubeck Quartet’s “Heigh Ho”) which are interpolated into the film’s soundtrack. The second CD (23 minutes) includes the original pre-demo recordings of four songs from “Mary Poppins” recorded by the Shermans and their MP soundtrack recordings, plus “A Spoonful of Sugar” (from MP).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful soundtrack to a beautiful movie! April 5, 2014
By Sayward
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was very easy to give this soundtrack five stars. It's a beautiful soundtrack from start to finish. I love the fact that the Deluxe edition added some of the original songs from the movie, Mary Poppins. That was just icing on the cake! For what ever reason, this movie didn't receive the kudos it deserved. It was beautifully done, as was the soundtrack. If you have ever read the Mary Poppins books, seen the original movie, or have seen Saving Mr. Banks, then you will LOVE not only the movie, but the soundtrack as well. This soundtrack, like the movie, are hidden gems, worthy of Disney and Mary Poppins fans! Now go buy the movie AND the soundtrack! You won't be disappointed. :-)
