Rankin/Bass Composer Maury Laws' New Website!
Wow! Check out this new site and learn everything you've ever wanted to know about our favorite
composer, Maury Laws! Maury has recently launched his site containing facts and photos spanning his entire career! Maury has been composing and conducting music for decades and, along with lyricist Jules Bass,
has scored the soundtracks for most of the Rankin/Bass projects. He has penned the music for such beloved classic songs as THE FIRST TOYMAKER TO THE KING, PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER and the HEAT MISER and SNOW MISER songs, just to name a few. His music sets the
mood for the scenes, and he often drills directly into our subconscience, producing songs we may hear only once, yet happily find
ourselves humming the next day. The man is nothing short of genius and is truly a living legend. The site contains a short bio, rare photos, and listings of all his musical endeavors!
