Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory – 25th Anniversary Edition – Leslie Bricusse


1 in stock



Originally released in 1971, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory was an imaginative film that drew as much inspiration from the leftover vibes (and drugs) of the psychedelic ’60s as it did from Roald Dahl’s fanciful children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If you doubt it, check out this special 25th anniversary edition of the original soundtrack album, which features lyrics and music by Anthony Newley, who was a major influence on David Bowie and whose work on this film has clearly inspired ’90s rockers from Veruca Salt (who took their name from the spoiled rich girl) to the Butthole Surfers (who could easily cover the sinister, trippy “Wondrous Boat Ride”. C’mon, everybody, let’s sing: “Oompa loompa/Doomp-ity-do/I’ve got another lesson for you….”
