  1. I bit the bullet and got the Disneyland release, just to collect it. As expected, it has nothing new. It's basically just the old 50th Anniversary CD with DCA stuck to the end. Probably the laziest release of this series.
  2. I loved it, but I'm easy mark for optimism and joy.
  3. I thought it was the original, but I can't really tell without a close comparison. I only believe that the Disney stuff is partially rerecorded because the score playing while Frank is on the bus sounded decidedly newer than normal 60s Disney recordings. But this is all from memory in the theater, so who knows.
  4. I really enjoyed the film, and the music within it. Speaking to my area of expertise, from memory, I'm pretty sure Giacchino rerecorded the orchestral portion of "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" that plays while Frank is on the bus, but the chorus it segues to is definitely the original 60s version, unless they got really close soundalikes. Pretty sure the chorus from "Small World" is likewise the original, though I suspect Giacchino may have rerecorded the orchestral portion for that too, to aid in the transition to his own original score. Anyway, that explains why the Richard Sherman was in the studio!
  5. I have waited a LONG time for this. Return to Oz is one of my absolute favorite scores.
  6. Bleh. Nothing on that Disneyland album I don't already own on two, three, or ten different CDs. Even its use of some "vintage" cuts like the Rainbow Caverns music isn't unique: the album is basically just the 50th Anniversary 2-disc with DCA tacked onto the end.
  7. The recent press release notes that it's 2 discs of Disneyland and 1 disc of DCA, which has me worried that it's just an Official Album with a fancy label.
  8. Aw man, now I've gotta wait months for the Disneyland CD? BUGGER. That thing fascinates me, because I can't imagine what's on it, for good or bad.
  9. Let's hope so. I have a really nice 30 minute version of the score without any of narration from the source tapes. However, remastered music would be awesome.Yeah, Horizons recording sessions, complete with the conductor calling the slates, have been out there forever. Sadly, like most park material that's been leaked, it's pretty crappy, and probably stems from an old cassette tape. A CD release of that material would be a godsend.
  10. The Shermans wrote several iconic songs for Disney Parks, including Tomorrowland. "There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" is the most iconic, hailing from the original Carousel of Progress. That song was later replaced with another Sherman Brothers tune, "Now Is The Time." Also in Tomorrowland, but somewhat less likely to be sampled, is "Miracles From Molecules," the Sherman Brothers's theme from Adventure Thru Inner Space.
  11. I don't care about June 3rd, but I care A LOT about June 24th.
  12. While MacFarlane's work leaves me cold, this is a pretty great pastiche of western scores. Obviously not even remotely groundbreaking, but it's certainly a fun listen. And I kinda love that theme song.
  13. Much of the best material from Disneyland has been released. It's Walt Disney World that needs serious attention. They could easily create a box set of A Music History's magnitude for EPCOT Center. Most of that park's simply tremendous score has never been officially released. Disney already missed the 30th anniversary and they only seem to be concerned with selling food, booze and teddy bears at the place these days while completely disregarding the original intent and essence of EPCOT Center, so I'm not holding my breath. Yeah, no arguements here. WDW, and EPCOT in particular, seriously needs a major release like Disneyland's 50th. In any event, the upcoming Disneyland release just really confuses me. It's just so... superfulous?
  14. I really curious about the Disneyland 60th, because while there's certainly unreleased material in the vaults, the 6-Disc 50th set was already phenomenal.
