But what has in large part been forgotten is that the rest of the soundtrack is just as enjoyable. Even the instrumental intro to "The Bare Necessities" is moving. The zesty Louis Prima-led "I Wanna Be Like You" is also not to be missed, and the disc also includes an interview with the Sherman Brothers, who wrote the music for this jungle farce version of the Kipling classic. It also includes two songs originally composed for the movie by Terry Gilkyson before Walt Disney had the story rewritten as a light comedy. - Ross BoissoneauThis is part of Disney's Classic Soundtrack Series.Reissue producers: Randy Thornton, Ted Kryczko.Composers: George Bruns; Robert B.
