BOOK REVIEW: Walt’s Time by the Sherman Brothers

On March 5th, 2012, the world lost a musical genius and Disney Legend, Robert B. Sherman.
If you are looking at this blog, you are very likely familiar with the works of Robert and his brother, Richard M. Sherman.
To go into detail as to the Sherman Brother’s contribution to Disney, indeed, music in general, would take many, many pages.
There is actually a book that does just that.

A couple of years ago, my wife bought me this book for my birthday. I’m not sure what she payed, but it is out of print, and fairly collectible.
“Walt’s Time: from before to beyond” is from 1998, 252 pages long, and is packed with many wonderful stories of their time with Walt and beyond.

The inside lists just a few of the many songs that have been part of my life from birth.
.
.
The book begins with the Sherman Brother’s very first meeting with Walt, their associations at the studio, and many sketches from animators and illustrators at the Walt Disney Studios.

.
From live action movies, animated films, and the Disney Parks, the Sherman Brother’s have contributed some of the most beloved songs ever written.

A lovely tribute to Walt Disney, who, along with their father, the brothers considered their biggest influence.
.
.
In 1990, the brothers were named Disney Legends.

.
This book is a wonderful look at 2 musical giants.
