Fantastic Mr. Fox (Original Soundtrack)
by Various Artists
Released: Nov 2009
Label: ABKCO (US)
For the soundtrack to his delightful stop-motion animation feature, Wes Anderson latches onto the unbelievably comforting voice of Burl Ives (known to non-folkies for his role as Sam the Snowman in the Rudolph Christmas special), a couple of Beach Boys tunes and a famed Stones rocker. Nancy Adams' "Love" is from Lady & the Tramp, and Jarvis Cocker goes folk with cockeyed class. Alexandre Desplat's appropriately folky score connects the tunes.
