Retrospective on Sherman Brothers Songbook CD Released

Oh, I'm definitely getting this set! Walt Disney Records has released a 2-CD retrospective of the Sherman Brothers songbook. And it looks like this is a gem!

On October 13, 2009 Walt Disney Records releases a two-disc retrospective collection of music by award-winning songwriting team, Robert Sherman and Richard Sherman. Hired by Walt Disney himself as his first and only staff songwriters, the Sherman Brothers 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.

The two-disc set includes 59 songs 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.

I'm running to the store now!
