A classic Disney film score
Most likely only Disney film fans remember this charming little movie from 1963. Although the film itself is charming, if not especially memorable, it is noteworthy for the very appealing song/score from the Sherman Brothers (Richard and Robert respectively) who, just a year later, would help create Walt Disney's film classic "Mary Poppins" (with its roster of stellar songs). The two hit songs from this score are the delightful "Ugly Bug Ball" (with orchestrations very similar to Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk") and the sentimental "On the Front Porch." If anything, this music represents a by-gone era of feel good films and music - boy, do we need more of it now!
A Treasure... Disney at its Best
Much like the happy go lucky music in Petes Dragon, Summer Magic is bright beautiful, and all around wonderful. I have been listening to this since i was young and the song "On The Front Porch" is still one of my favorites ever. Please enjoy and share it will your children and grandchildren
oh my gosh!!!! this album is THE BEST EVER!!!
You know, I seriously think that this is one of very few albums that is to be treasured in many years to come. I am 13 years old, and most kids at my age are into rap and hip-hop and all that junk. But this album...it gives you a warm feeling of home. All the music is soooo heart-warming! I abosolutely LOVE the voice og Eddie Hodges and Hayley Mills together, but I mainly love Hayley Mills' voice. This album is for kids from one years old to adults that want to remember the old times when everybody was everybody's friend. The voices are soooo sweet and gentle. This is a fave of all my family and we all love it- my mom even took it to her Shoppe (The Cozy Cup Quilt Shoppe) to play it there! So think about it, new moms and grandmothers, when you are feeding your children/grandchildren cookies and lemonade! Thanks for reading my review! -Melody G.
