    D23 Members Exclusive: The Sherman Brothers Songbook 2-CD Set

    The Sherman Brothers Songbook - 2 CD SetCelebrate the soundtrack to our lives with Walt Disney’s favorite songwriters and the Sherman Brothers Songbook, a newly restored special 2-CD set with 59 tracks, including 6 songs never-before-released on CD, and 26 rare tracks.

    Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman were hired by Walt Disney himself as his first and only staff songwriters. Their music has been an important part of motion pictures, theme park attractions, television productions, records, compact discs, and Broadway shows — entertaining millions of people all over the world.

    Presented here are 59 songs in over 2 1/2 hours of total playing time highlighting the Sherman Brothers’ incredibly prolific Disney years – from Annette’s 1959 hit Tall Paul to their work from The Tigger Movie in 2000. Newly restored with the latest digital technology, this collection features not only their landmark hits from Mary Poppins, Winnie the Pooh, The Jungle Book, and ”it’s a small world”, but a number of their other classics, many available for the first time on CD.

    Their voluminous repertoire is only matched by their musical versatility — composing in styles from rock ‘n roll and English music hall to samba and march. These genres and more are represented as we travel through the Sherman Brothers’ Disney career from the very beginning. The extensive liner notes reveal the stories behind the songs; illustrated with candid photos of the Shermans at work, and with the star-studded gallery of artists who performed their classic songs. Artists such as Annette Funicello, Fred MacMurray, Hayley Mills , Maurice Chevalier, Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, Louis Armstrong and Angela Lansbury.
