Not sure why they didn't simply did that collection chronologically, starting with Snow White onwards, instead going a bit randomly through the titles (I mean, there aren't any rights issue or anything, so one has to wonder how they chose the titles, as it seems your theory that it was to celebrate anniversaries ending with 0 or 5 turned out to be untrue). Maybe it depends on how much work has to be done on each score (cleaning up the recording, etc.)?

Perhaps they started with the 0/5 plan and rebooted the series when it proved logistically unfeasible?

It seems Disney abandoned the 0-5 anniversary idea for whatever reason and I'm glad they did because they skipped a lot of grails in 2016.  Then again, who knows what released are planned right now.

So how complete are those releases in terms of non-song related material?

Me personally, I'm hoping for The Fox And The Hound, and Aladdin (on top of Robin Hood). Pity some recent films are, well, too recent, for inclusion.

Of the classics, I'm also hoping for The Sword in the Stone.

As far as I recall: The newer ones (i.e. starting with Mermaid) utterly complete, the old ones just remastered editions of what we had before. But in the case of Robin Hood we never had anything, so I guess they should put most on it.

Newer ones were often complete but not necessarily so, but that all depends on how you define 'complete'. The Lion King, for instance, wasn't complete on account of not having alternates or even one or two pieces as the film has them, but it hardly mattered because all the music was represented.

Yes, Disney has not approached these as the boutique labels do necessarily.  For me, the coolest was creating the "full" versions of the unused songs for Mary Poppins.  That's the kind of thing you can only do with a Disney budget.

i almost prefer them to release the cds without announcing the whole set....

 

while it's nice to know what is coming... having to wait months or even a year for one score was no funny :P

Nice to see the western demo! For anyone interested, the film was originally suppossed to take place in a western setting, but at a very late time they changed it to medieval. That's why you still hear a lot of southern accents and instruments in the songs you would associate more with the old west than with medieval times.

Probably a promotional album he did based on the movie. Like he and Phil Harris did with Jungle Book.

I never knew that. Interesting!

But Prima had a role in The Jungle Book. What's his connection to Robin Hood?

Fascinating. Looks like they're packing this full with all the material they can find, in any case.

From what I've read, Prima had such a blast working on Jungle Book (and his subsequent Let's Fly With Mary Poppins album) that he begged for a role in Robin Hood, but he had to settle for the above album, which I've never heard but look forward to listening to ironically. :D
