Hollis and Ehrbar go behind the scenes at the Walt Disney Studios to chronicle the history of "Walt Disney Records". They discover that Walt and brother Roy resisted going into the record business before the success of "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" ignited the in-house label, and trace the recording adventures of such Disney favourites as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Cinderella, Bambi, Jiminy Cricket, Winnie the Pooh, and even Walt Disney himself. "Mouse Tracks" reveals the struggles, major successes, and occasional misfires. Complementing each chapter are cameo biographies, reproductions of album covers and art, and facsimiles of related promo material.
