Overview

Listeners will be familiar with the archival recordings contained on this beautifully packaged CD even if they have never heard of the composer. Carl Stalling was the genius principally responsible for the manic music behind the great Warner Bros. cartoons of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. While Stalling's scores -- with their quotations of popular period music, folk tunes, and classical pieces -- went unheralded at the time, the composer has achieved a cult stardom due to this recording, and its equally splendid second volume. Fans of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner cartoons will instantly recognize familiar themes and motifs in this lengthy and varied album, which includes plenty of background information on Stalling's methods and legacy.
