Long before there was another Tale to Spin, there was the Bare Necessities. In the 1960s, Buena Vista Records released an album featuring some of the best known and beloved songs from Walt Disney films of the past; including a selection from a new (at that time) offering from the Jungle Book. It would be the final film produced by Walt Disney, himself.
This featured artist has been around music for about as long as there has been any kind of media to record music. Born in New Orleans in August of 1901, he rose from dire poverty to become the brightest-shining star in American music history.
