Hello, I'm new to this forum but have been a part of many other film music websites around the net for years. I was directed here because I "Asked Dave" over at the Disney Insider why there has never been a soundtrack release to "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", and maybe Randy Thronton is the man more properly to pose the question to. I suppose, like many others at this and other websites, I became interested in film music partly because of the Disny films I saw in the movies or on television growing up. What has always been missing would be original soundtracks to the feature films without the narration or the cute storybook format. The greates releases, in my opinion, have always been the WDL series on vinyl and then the classic animated film scores to Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, etc. After the two-disc Mary Poppins came out with the underscore, I thought perhaps the pendelum was swinging the other way and we might finally get some live action scores. But that was not the case. Then there was the downloading kiosk thing that just disappeared. So what's the problem? I'd really like to know what the policy is: Why won't Disney release at least some of their vast musical library to 20,000 Leagues, In Search of the Castaways, Island at the Top of the World, for example? Over at the Film Score Monthly message board I got a few cynical responses about corporate Disney, Paramount Pictures, Universal, etc. But to my mind Disney stands above the others as a studio because they actually reach out to their fans, and they have, in the past, fulfilled our wishes. So maybe this question has been asked a hundred times before, and maybe the executives feel there isn't much of a market for this kind of thing, but I'd say by the responses to my thread at FSM, it would be the single greatest film music event of this or any other year.
