CD Reviews

Hauntingly beautiful
M.L. Mitchell | Vancouver , B.C. | 03/02/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great C.D.! Love is a Song is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. It was nominated for an Academy Award that year. My other favorites are April Showers, Looking for Romance, Let's Sing a Gay Little Spring Song, and Wintry Winds. The booklet included with the C.D. is great."
Academy Award nominated Score and Song

"This is a modern Disney original soundtrack restoration from the 1942 movie by master restoration producer Randy Thornton. He has taken the original soundtrack music recorded in the 1940's, reconstructed it,and de-noised it so that it sounds clean and crisp. The song "Love is a Song" was nominated for an Academy Award but was beat out by "White Christmas" that year. The Score was also nominated for 'Best Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture category'. Long time Disney Studio composer Frank Churchill and Larry Morey wrote the 4 songs that had lyrics for Bambi, and had worked together on the songs for Snow White. The movie was made during the period when Walt was still very involved in every aspect of developing an animated feature, and Bambi was no exception. He pushed his composers hard to come up with the sound he envisioned. Bambi is known as "Walt's personal favorite". The feature had only 900 words of dialogue, so it was intended that the score and songs would carry the emotions and story. This soundtrack has less lyrics than any other Disney feature with the exception of Fantasia.

There is even a demo of a song that was cut from the movie included here as a bonus "Rain Drops" which influenced a later song "Little April April Showers". There is a great 15 page booklet with song lyrics, great liner notes, and terrific artwork from the movie. All total the CD lists 16 tracks and 53 minutes of music. Overall a gem of Disney history and very fun to listen to. These restoration CD's from Disney are a great deal being very affordable."
As Emotional an Experience as the Movie Itself

"In few Disney soundtracks is the composer's gift better showcased than here. Much of the impact of "Bambi" was carried by music and visuals rather than dialogue, and playing this CD makes it clear just how much of your impression of this or any movie you get, unconsciously, from the music drifting out of your speakers. Tracks like "Everybody Awake," "Learning to Walk," "Little April Shower," "Gallop of the Stags," "Man," "Fun on the Ice," "Tragedy in the Meadow," "Bambi Gets Twitterpated/Stag Fight," "Man Returns," and "Fire/Reunion/Finale" fit the action so perfectly that you see the scenes replaying in your mind. Then there are the beautiful vocals "Love is a Song" and "I Bring You a Song," which should have sunk into the public consciousness the way "Heigh-Ho" (from "Snow White") or "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" (from "Cinderella") did. A beautiful score."
