    I have conducted an interview with Leo Birenberg, composer of this series, for my channel.  Hope you guys enjoy. It includes music from the show throughout as we talk (over it), but one of the cues plays at the very end on its own.
     
    If you guys want this score released, he has instructed us to tweet our desire to the following Twitter handles:

    The former producer liked hiring a guy who brickwalled everything. Cary and I work with folks who level properly. In the case of this, 5 Cat Studios oversaw the whole process. John is a joy and knows what he wants.

    Late to the party, but I know for a fact (though I don't have evidence) that Don Davis ghost-wrote cues for Horner on We're Back! and that he wrote "The Claw" from Randy Newman's Toy Story 3.
     
    If you think about it, Horner didn't really need to use ghost-writers considering how much music he borrowed and re-used xD
     
    Also, I think there's a factor we're not taking into consideration here. The production times have changed greatly in the last twenty years. Everything's much faster now, there's usually no time for a single composer to write 2-3 hours of music (not counting the re-writes) and additional composers are a necessity these days, for better or worse. Not everyone can have a luxurious schedule like Williams on the last 3 Star Wars... And Morricone didn't (most of the time) write to picture and he wrote a lot of stuff based on the same material with very little variation, so that's why he could do so much material in a small space of time. 
     
    This is why -I believe- Williams started to write less and less for film. The breaking point seems to be The Lost World, where digital editing elements start to shape the picture and allow the filmmamkers to keep editing and editing the movie until the last minute... Take The Hobbit, for example, or the disastrous Cats from last year, where they literally kept editing until *hours* before the premiere. You can't expect a single composer to keep writing and re-writing all that material by themselves. It's insane.
     
    And even with a luxurious timetable, like Williams had on the Star Wars sequels, they kept chopping and chopping the score to bits, particularly on the last movie. Why even bother making Williams re-write all that material if you're not even gonna use it?

    Could be, thought I'm not certain at all. Balto sounds like a good effort from Horner to my ears, like he was actually invested by the setting and story. But he could have handed the more silly cues to someone else and focus on the more interesting material, like the white wolf cue -which to this day remains to me as one of the highlights of Horner's carreer.
