Notes
In 1961, between April 5th and the 10th, Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers, songwriters Richard and Robert Sherman, and screenwriter Don DiGradi discussed the very first outline of the proposed Mary Poppins film and played the first drafts of several songs. After these series of meeting concluded, Mrs, Travers gave the go ahead to do the film. These recordings inspired the film Saving Mr. Banks.
NOTE: The songs heard on these recordings were sung by the Sherman brothers during the story meetings and are not the pre-demo tracks.
