A deluxe reissue of the 1968 soundtrack to the musical version of James Bond creator Ian Fleming's children's novel about a magical car. The songs are by veteran Disney composers Richard and Robert Sherman, and while they're not quite as memorable as what the team came up with for MARY POPPINS, they're certainly better than serviceable, and stars Dick Van Dyke and Sally Anne Howes sing the heck out of them (the title song was nominated for an Academy Award, although it lost to "The Windmills of Your Mind," from the original THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR).
