The Carl Stalling Project, Volume 1How can anyone resist the classic sound of the original Looney Toons and Merrie Melodie cartoons? Carl Stalling’s distinctive style changed the way pictures were put to music forever, and created an instantly recognizable repetoire unto itself. You’ve heard a lot of these tracks already, but they were in the background, part of the atmosphere for Bugs, Daffy, Elmer Fudd or Marvin the Martian. But the cues are unmistakable. Most of them do not contain any dialogue and are excellent original recordings, but a few of 4 out of 4them have the sound effects and character voices intact. My favorites on this album are “Powerhouse and other cuts from the 1950s” and the “Anxiety Montage” – the latter of which contains almost every musical backing for any imaginable exciting situation ever seen in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. This is a must-have!
