OK... last night I pulled the CD soundtrack of "Pete's Dragon" off the shelf and gave it a spin.
The song "Passamashloddy" is a song sung in the film by Doc Terminus (Jim Dale) with minor assists from Hoagy (Red Buttons). Welp, not on this cd issue. Red Buttons' vocals are completely missing from the track. Granted, he didn't have much to sing on this song, but he is listed in the booklet as being on the track... yet the lyrics of the song in the booklet have his (very few) lines cut.
Hmmmm.... I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this and/or knows why the track was released this way. Red Buttons is featured prominently on Doc Terminus' and Hoagy's other big song, but why not here?
