In the Key of Disney

All Music Guide
Brian Wilson's second release for Walt Disney Records finds the Beach Boys mastermind putting his own stamp on 11 classic Disney songs. Working with composer Paul Von Mertens, who wrote the string arrangements for 2004's SMiLE, Wilson pays homage to the animated Disney films of his youth by reinterpreting songs from Dumbo, The Jungle Book, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Some of the tracks are performed as complex instrumentals. Others are given the full Beach Boys treatment, drenched with layers of sunny harmonies and high-flying falsetto vocals that are as classic as the Disney catalog itself.

    Great meeting of the minds~ you should definitely check this out if you love Disney or the Beach Boys/Brian.

    Nothing triggers more happy memories for me than cruising down to Disneyland listening to "Fun, Fun Fun" or "California Girls", now two of my faves have been united in one album.
