    One of Disney's Greatest

    Bedknobs and Broomsticks was a great movie. The story, actors, and especially the music made the movie. How can anyone forget Substitutiary Locomotion?? Or the Age oF Not Believeing?? Bedknobs and Broomsticks is one of the greatest Disney movies I've seen.

    One of Disney's best soundtracks ever

    After searching and searching for the original sountrack for B&B, I finally found an old LP version, but unfortunately haven't got to listen to it due to lack of finding a decent record player. So it was exciting to see that Disney released this CD and I think it's better because not only is it remastered but it also contains bonus tracks. And, as usual with Disney, I wasn't disappointed. All the original songs are included, with some slight differences than when heard in the movie. But that is okay as it actually enhances the listening experience. As with all their other musical achievements for Disney, Richard and Robert Sherman have really out-done themselves with this soundtrack. Kudos to the Sherman brothers. The songs are story-related and very entertaining and addictive (who wouldn't bounce around to the tune "A Step in the Right Direction"?). The music also presents a variety of styles: soft ballads ("The Age of Not Believing" & "Nobody's Problems"), toe-tapping,"show-stoppy" songs ("With A Flair" and "Eglantine"), militaristic ("The Old Home Guard"), exotic ("Portobello Road"), and ballroom-style jazz ("The Beautiful Briny"). And who can forget the dancy "Substitutiary Locomotion"? These songs have long been considered underrated, but if you pick up this CD and really listen I promise you won't be disappointed and, if you're a grand Disney fanatic like me, you'll agree that this soundtrack belongs in any Disney music library. The bonus tracks include early demo recordings of Richard Sherman performing "Solid Citizen" (which is hilarious) and "The Fundamental Element" (also hilarious) on the piano, both of which were initially cut from the film entirely (what a shame). The only things that keep me from giving this CD 5 stars (which is killing me, trust me) is the fact that "Portobello Road" should have been recorded in its entirety (which contains a bunch of various musical styles in itself and is some of the best music in the whole soundtrack at that). And the song "Nobody's Problems" sung by Angela Lansbury is performed with piano accompaniment on its bonus track instead of with the orchestra track heard in the 30th anniversary movie version, which is just gorgeous. Still, this CD is definitely worth buying and listening to.
