Overview

This 1971 screen musicalization of Roald Dahl's children's book boasts an enchanting and memorable score from Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley that boasts a handful of classic songs ("The Candyman," "Golden Ticket," "Pure Imagination," and the wonderful "Oompa Loompa" interludes). The songs, however, have had a life of their own beyond the film--"The Candyman" would later become a hit for Sammy Davis, Jr., while "Pure Imagination" has been recorded by musician Michael Feinstein among others. The soundtrack's arrangements by Walter Scharf are terrific and this Hip-O reissue boasts remarkably clear stereophonic sound that should enchant listeners for years to come.

I think the Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory should be rated with 5 stars. This soundtrack features the favorites of the video. I love listening to the CD while I'm cleaning. All the songs are upbeat, and singing along is a MUST!!! :)
