Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection

Recommended Posts

It seems that Disney only did a great job on The Lion King to attract attention on the Legacy Collection. Now, they can rerelease scores with only a few demos added to them, and they know there'll be people who will buy them no matter what...

"BAM! DISNEY PRESENTS: THE LEGACY COLLECTION! LISTEN TO THE COMPLETE THE LION KING SCORE THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE HEARD! A COMPLETE NEW MIX! UNRELEASED CUES! DEMOS! A FANTASTIC BOOKLET!

OK, now that we've got your attention, here are some rereleases you can buy..."

Nah, Little Mermaid will be another good one.

You know something?

Man you really like teasing us, or have the Emperor's foreseeing abilities... :P

BTW, I recently "re-discovered" the Pocahontas special edition, because it's my GF favourite disney film, and fell in love with the added song and finale. I just hope they are included in the Legacy set (why wouldnt they...but who knows...) It would be nice to have the film version (if it is not the same performance, if it is just a dialed out edit then good riddance!) and full version of the finale (the special edition only uses part of the lyrics, a lengthier rendition was recorded)

One year to know...

I did say about the newer scores getting better treatment. I'm wondering if it's costly to adequately clean/remix the old masters for the older scores.

I may buy this, even if I don't really like the film. I need an expanded Menken on my shelf.

I really wish they'd expand the older scores. I'm a child of the 80's/90's so I LOVE the expanded Lion King and am looking forward to Mermaid, but PLEASE, expand the older classics too!!

Having watched The Fox and the Hound for the first time yesterday, if The Legacy Collection goes beyond 2016, I'd like to see that one done as the OST only contains the songs and none of the score.

I am a little disappointed that Fantasia doesn't alter the mixes for the original recordings, meaning it's the same as the last issue of the OST. It's clear the original masters must have been lost. However, the inclusion of the re-recordings makes up for it in my book, and I'm still purchasing it even though I have the last issued OST.

What do you mean "almost" complete? Is something significant missing from Lion King or Little Mermaid?

Lion King misses out alternate versions. There are alternates slated for Circle of Life, Scar's Dinner, This Land, Stampede and Mufasa Dies. We know three of those were recorded for certain. There's also the Be Prepared Reprise which was in the earlier workprint versions of the film. However, it all depends on your view as to whether any of these count as 'significant'. I'd say the alternate Scar's Dinner is because it was in the film, but that's pretty much it.

I don't know about Little Mermaid though.

For what have i read,

A cue between Fireworks and the Storm. The grotto revealed (it's like 15 sec)

Fireworks is missing a chorus overlay (that was in the original OST)

And Ariel's voice singing when she retrieves her voice is also missing. But that as important as it is, could be tracked from when she loses her voice of when ursula sings on the beach to they may have decided not to track it in the new album.

Otherwise it seems perfect (aside from a strange mix in the finale, that maybe is intentional and composed like it)

I have to assume that - assuming the 2014 and 2015 crop of Legacy Collection titles are selling well - that we'll see Beauty And The Best in 2016 and Aladdin in 2017 for their respective 25th anniversaries.
