The single most requested item since the book came out last year was a soundtrack release of the songs from Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol and now, after 48 years, I'm pleased to announce that you can finally buy Styne and Merrill's classic songs from the special!
Due to the economics of manufacturing and distribution, not to mention the lead time for the distribution pipeline, Classic Media determined that the fastest and most cost effective solution was to release the songs as digital downloads rather than as a single CD.
So starting today, all the songs are available for download from Amazon and iTunes. Classic Media went back to the original source material to get the highest possible quality for this release. It's been a long time coming and kudos to Classic Media for finally making it happen. You can leave feedback for them here.
Alas, neither Walter Scharf's gorgeous musical score nor the super rare Overture made it to this collection but if you would like to see a future release of that material, you can contact Classic Media here.
