"I've searched countless times for information on Basil Pouledouris and this score. Unfortunately when I found information, all of the scores that were deemed his "best" excluded this one. It's quite a shame. His score for, "The Jungle Book" is absolutely breathtaking, adventurous, romantic and epic for a Disney movie. It just doesn't seem disney like. This score captivated my attention back in '94 when I was about five or six. As good as all the other Disney soundtracks are, this one, along with the Hans Zimmer's work in, "The Lion King" are on another level. Which I thinks is even better. It connects you on a deeper level with the characters and the atmosphere. I get chills when I hear the theme main titles/the caravan. And, I feel the magic of love when I hear, "Kitty." Every single track has minor themes to keep it exciting. The themes are playful such as in, "Monkey City", or grandiose as in, "Treasure Room, or "Spoils." The "Finale" delivers the love theme and mowgli's theme in an intelligent, sweeping, magical way. For anyone who already owns this, and can review this in a more eloquent way, please do so. More people need to hear this beautiful score."
Just what you'd expect

"This CD is a must-purchase if you're looking for the sweeping musical excerpts and light, jovial melodies from the movie. However, the inclusion of the Kenny Loggins song that has very little to do with the movie is a cheesy marketing ploy. It's not a bad song, but it's not a song one must hear. I recommend this purchase if you want to add these cues to your soundtrack collection, but not otherwise."
