From time to time, we touch on the subject of whether a CD (i.e. Parade of Dreams) can be released or not based on the profability of its release. I have been curious for awhile now on how the artists and musicians are paid for their services. Cash, check or Disney dollars? Seriously though, let's use the Paul Frees estate for an example. Was his estate paid all at once for the use of his voice? On the opposite side, Did Thurl Ravenscroft receive royalties? Is it different from artist to artist, or is Disney policy the same for all? Has policy changed over time? Are royalties old fashioned or difficult to keep up with? Is a lump payment for past work the preferred way to go? Are there cases were the artists are not paid? Jack Wagner used some of his records for BGM after all. Is Fess Parker still in on the take? I think the cases are many and unique. If Randy releases a vintage recording, are the artists or estates paid again?
