Heffalump Movie / Lion King 1 1/2

Wow, a bit of a vacation there. Let's resume the posting, shall we?

Up next is a pair of Mouse House titles, Joel McNeely's Pooh's Heffalump Movie and Don Harper's The Lion King 1 1/2, both released as promotional albums by their composers.

Neither score has been released in any significant form. Only Heffalump received a few scant minutes of space on Walt Disney Records' Best of Pooh and Heffalumps, Too album, which was released to conincide with Heffalump's theatrical run and was dominated by Carley Simon tunes.

Harper's Lion King 1 1/2 felt even less love, completely ignored on a quickie soundtrack release that featured songs performed by Raven, and Vinx (who?).

Both scores are entertaining and animated (er, like their films). McNeely's is a traditional orchestral score that is both unassuming, gentle and sweet. Certainly inline with the work of a composer with considerable strengths for melodic, listenable film music.

Harper, who has carved a career for himself writing additional music for Trevor Rabin, continues where Hans Zimmer's Oscar-winning score for The Lion King left off, those this time tipping the balance towards the orchestral/choral, with plenty of ethnic touches, and African-style vocals.
