Track Listing Legend:
*Incorporates "Attack" by J. Trombey
**Incorporates "Comedy Cocktails No. 11" by Paul Gerard

Neil Hefti's style was breezy and melodic, but he was also an expert dramatic composer—even in his comedy films—-and such is the case with Won Ton Ton. The flavor of the main title music, which evokes the 1920s, continues throughout the score for the upbeat cues, but Hefti also has several beautiful themes running throughout the film to underscore the sweet affection the dog feels for the Madeline Kahn character. It's a truly delightful score, both in and away from the film, and it's classic Hefti all the way.

This is the world premiere release of Won Ton Ton, taken from the multi-track tapes stored in the Paramount vault and newly mixed especially for this release, in wonderful stereo sound.

Our second feature is Hefti's infectious score to the 1967 comedy Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad. For the film, Hefti created another melodic and fun score, including a bouncy main title song and several classic Hefti tunes along the way. Our source for this CD was the original three-track album master.

This release is limited to 1000 copies only.
