Disney's Snow White, the world's first animated musical feature (1937), is still a standard in the industry. Though 1930s recording technology was primitive by today's standards, the Disney music studios have always used the available technology to its fullest, and this recording still stands up. The mature but hauntingly childlike Adriana Caselotti as Snow White is a unique vocal presence, and the songs include "Whistle While You Work," "Heigh-Ho," and "Some Day My Prince Will Come." The score is nearly as great an accomplishment as the film itself. --John Sanchez

Snow White's wonderful songs, such as 'I'm Wishing', 'Some Day My Prince will Come', and 'Whistle While You Work' are the most recognizable tunes, along with the 7 Dwarfs' 'Heigh-Ho' as they return to their cottage from their diamond mine. The score also has a darker side to it; such tracks as the 'Magic Mirror', which depicts the Queen learning from the Mirror that she is no longer 'fairest in the land'; the 'Queen Theme' - in which the Queen gives orders to the Huntsman to murder Snow White while she picks wildflowers; and 'I've been tricked', when the enraged Queen, learning her plot had failed, concocts a potion to turn herself into a peddler and a poisonous apple. This one has a frightening trombone melody followed by wailing strings as the Queen begins the transformation. The lively 'Dwarfs' Yodel song' and 'Washing song' round things out nicely.
This is one of Disney's greatest scores; both the young & the old will love it!
My review title pretty much sums it up... I don't know what the original reels sounded like, but this finished result sounds great!
There are some occasional hisses, pops and imperfections in the audio tracks... but what do you expect from something originally released in 1937?!
My only gripe is that the chorus of "God voices" sounds really distant (like they're singing through a wall), but I assume that's just how it was recorded 70 years ago, so I can't really complain about anything.
The soundtrack is surprisingly developed for a film of its age, and historically it is a milestone because it was the first film to have its actual soundtrack (not just arrangements or highlights) released.
The other thing that I LOVE about it is that all the tracks are placed in the CORRECT order on the album. I absolutely hate that the Little Mermaid and some other Disney soundtracks are all mixed up (with all the songs being clustered together and then the score being the second half), so this Snow White soundtrack was a VERY nice surprise.
Definitely a worthy addition to any collection!
It is great to hear the music of the movie now on CD.
These songs seem to have been taken right from the movie and we love them! We Play them on our karaoke machine and sing right along with the princesses!
