I just received some interesting news from an industry source about the release of Theme Park music on CD?s.
?Randy Thornton is right (regarding my letter on the News & Ramblings Page of my site)--- it would require re-payments to the musicians' unions to release most of that stuff. This is why you see maybe one representative "main theme" released, and not the entire catalog. Still expensive, but more
For many years, when you went to buy a movie soundtrack album, you
weren't getting the real recording from the film, but a new version made
specifically for album release. Same cause here--- the original session
costs to include soundtrack releases were prohibitive for the
film-makers. In some cases, it was cheaper to record the music again for
the album under a limited pressing agreement, or some such.?
Well, I hope you understand better why theme park music is hard to release, I sure do, now. I wonder if releasing it on the iTunes Music Store, for now, is better and/or cheaper?
