Way back, 40+ years back! At a recording session, producing the songs for Banjo the Woodpile Cat some time in early 1976. From the left Sally Stevens, Sue Allen and Jackie Ward. The three of them also sang for the three cats sisters, Melina, Cleo and Zazu. The photo is a bit blurred due to the darkness of the recording studio. At the right of Jackie Ward is Don next to John Pomeroy. In the foreground at right is a blurry Gary and at the left a silhouette of music conductor, Robert Brunner. Besides writing, directing, storyboarding and animating much of the film, Don wrote all the lyrics and melodies of the songs. They had to record the songs before animating the characters in order to keep the action to the beat of the song and sync the lyrics to the characters’ mouths. See Banjo the Woodpile Cat part 2
Sally Stevens was brought in to sing the Flying Dreams lullaby version in the “Timmy’s sick” sequence of The Secret of NIMH (1982).
