Golden Book Video unknowns
« on: March 18, 2023, 11:38:30 PM »
Golden Book Video was the first place I started hearing library music when I was young. It was years after watching "Herbert the Timid Dragon" from "3 Mercer Mayer Stories" that I immediately recognized "Royal Entrance" by Dick Walter in another source: Spongebob Squarepants. The episode was "Sleepy Time", in which there was a scene where Spongebob enters Squidward's dream and when Spongebob first interrupts Squidward in the audience, the cue would play as the king would scold Squidward for halting his performance. And it later occurred to me that the music being used in Spongebob was also used in Golden Books' video series.

Here are a bunch of tracks I am interested in identifying from select stories from various video titles:

Updated as I've found two tracks from "The Wolf and the Kids": "The Petulant Penguin" by Dennis Farnon from Conroy BMLP 083 "Dennis Farnon's Comedy Cuts 1 & 2" (with the pitch raised up 3 semitones higher) and "Lumbering Gait" by Alec Gould from KPM 1187 "The Nature of Woodwind".

Nice, now the Emil Ascher, Inc. libraries are now a possible guess for the missing music in addition to Capitolís Media Music which was in Scuffy the Tugboat.

Thanks, Retronic!

Update: I've just re-recorded one of the unknown "Little Toad" tracks, because the previous recording had an error sound from my laptop play while I was recording the background audio through Audacity. Plus, I've added two more unknown "Noah's Ark" tracks as they are the remainder of all the unknowns for that segment, which leaves us with six unknown tracks left to identify.

EDIT: Identified another track; this time from "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" from "Richard Scarry's Animal Nursery Tales": "Return of the Keystone Cops" by David Lindup from KPM 1039 "Light Imitations - Vol. III".

Thanks! I don't know how I missed this one, but the music editors must have used the hell out of this album.

More music has been found as I looked over the Theodore Goes to Sea segment and the 3 Hugga Bunch Stories video.

ID'd the first two Noah tracks as "Passing Meadows" by Johnny Pearson from KPM 1191 "Landscapes / Things To Come / New Innovations Suite".

Also added more tracks to the folder from the stories "What Was That!", "Theodore Mouse Goes to Sea" and one from "The House That Had Enough".

NOTE: The newly added "huggabunch" cue is a more full version of the unknown cue from "Little Toad to the Rescue", minus the added trombone.

whatwasthat4 was in Prisoner Cell Block H- likely Bruton

The others you may find by searching for instrument- ie, 'accordian'
I can check a couple of catalogues over the weekend
If you have a list of the ones found so far you can share, it'll have some clues

Actually, it's from KPM 1180 "Tender Emotions"; "Helping Hands" by James Clarke. Kudos to musictheorist for identifying that one!
