Disc 1 features the standard "Original Soundtrack" album (again), along with three tracks taken directly from the film's soundtrack, extraneous noise and all. It's really nothing that anyone couldn't do themselves at their home computer. Also included is the 1968 "Song And Picture Book Album" featuring Richard M. Sherman and Lola Fisher.
Disc 2 features several demo recordings by RIchard M. Sherman. They're good to have, if you like that sort of thing. The remainder of the tracks are "playback tracks".
The first two "playback tracks" are simply poor-quality versions of the title song heard on the original soundtrack.
The third track offers something new: The version of the title song used in the "water transformation" scene. The quality is poor, but the orchestral underscoring is there.
Next is the underscore of "The Vulgarian National Anthem" and the ballroom version of "Chu Chi Face". Again, poor quality, but at least it's something.
Finally we have three tracks from the "Doll On A Music Box" sequence. First is Truly's version. Other than being unedited, it's the same as the soundtrack version. Next is Potts' dance break underscore. And then Truly and Potts' duet as featured in the movie with Potts' missing lines when Truly hits him and he gets distracted by his own reflection.Read more ›
Posh and Hushabye Mountain are really my favorite songs. Would like very much to get OST performances where Dick Van Dyke sings Hushabye Mt in French and other languages wonder what Posh would sound like?
"This is livin', this is style, this is elegance by the miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile!"
If you saw it, n missed it, that guy singin suspended in the airborn outhouse, Posh, you might want to get this.
I also bought Willy Wonka OST here, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa de do, I've got another riddle for you ......
That being said, the only thing - the ONE thing - that prevents me from giving this wonderful soundtrack a full five stars is that the "Doll on a Music Box" tracks do not have the clicking/snapping/popping effects that are in the movie that Truly makes as she moves aren't present. I always thought those sounds were part of the music, and the fact that they are omitted causes the songs to feel incomplete.
Maybe other people won't mind the lack of the effects, but it really bugged me. It's not a deal breaker, as I love having the songs on my iPod now, but it's just very disappointing to me that the doll sounds were omitted from "Doll on a Music Box."
Otherwise a major improvement on a great soundtrack album
