45th Anniversary Edition — Music From The Original Soundtrack on gold vinyl

The original soundtrack to the Oscar-nominated 1971 film "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" adapted from Roald Dahl's 1964 novel tells the timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir.

Willy Wonka's producers were trying for a musical along the lines of Mary Poppins or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang that is
something that could appeal to children but not bore adults and vice versa depending upon how one approached it.

They got more than they bargained for, in an immensely tuneful score by Leslie Bricusse with fantasy-laced lyrics by Anthony Newley wrapped up in a film that appealed to the more worldly perceptions of children and to parents who recalled that side of themselves.
