Boasting one of the stage and screen’s classic voices, Julie Andrews was unforgettable as Disney’s Mary Poppins. For this collection, she reunites with the studio, presenting some of the classic songs and singers that have graced Disney films. Her range as Mary is represented by the charming “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and the wistful “Feed the Birds (Tuppence a Bag),” and the rest of the tunes here are just as diverse. Yes, there are more than a few love songs here -- “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “You’ll Be in My Heart Tonight” chief among them -- but Peggy Lee's “He’s a Tramp” and Phil Harris and Bruce Reitherman's “The Bare Necessities” add just the right amount of mischief. A welcome sampling of beloved Disney characters and the singers who gave voices to them.
