    Randy Thornton, if you're out there, what are the track listings for the upcoming Disneyland and Walt Disney World CDs?

    Also, will the new WDW album contain soundtracks from such recent attractions as Journey into Imagination with Figment, Mickey's Philharmagic and Stitch's Great Escape?

    Ya know...

    As much as I love Philharmagic, it doesn't really offer any original music. Do we really need "A Whole New World" taking up space on the OA? I think not.

    And as for Journey Into Imagination, that ride is cute and charming, but a mere figment of its former self. Everytime I have been on it, it has been a walk-on. Why not give us some of the Honey, I Shrunk the Audience score, instead? That is an attraction that has been seen by countless millions of people, and none of the catchy score has ever been officially released. Come on, just 3 minutes of music on the next OA would make me happy. Sorry to be a broken record....

    You and your obsession with Bruce Broughton, Jim! ;)

    Next you'll be demanding Joel McNeely's music from the New Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln attraction on the DL OA. ;D

    Uh, yes. Actually, given that Mr. Lincoln is being shut down in a week, I'm hoping that it appears on the 50th set. :)

    I think this infomation has more security than a Presidential motorcade ... if only we could get some reliable leaks from someone on the inside. Now that would be a scoop!

    Personally I think Philarmagic is a rather good bet for being included in the next OA - exactly because it features well known songs. It is a highly popular, high-profile attractions and features songs guests remember from even before their visit.

    Something like the score for HISTA on the other hand, no matter how wonderful or impressive it may be, is something most guests do not remember as a piece of music - unfortunately.

    A sad state of affairs, indeed. This is why, for instance, the soundtrack cd to POOH'S HEFFALUMP MOVIE consists of all of the classic Pooh songs by the Sherman Brothers (that have been previously released), and only 2-1/2 minutes of Joel McNeely's fine score. I find it extremely frustrating that the general public is only interested in songs, and never in orchestral music. I was so pleased when Randy Thornton's DCA official album came out and he included some of Broughton's excellent score for "Seasons of the Vine," along with Goldsmith's brilliant "Soarin' Over California." For my money, those are the best two tracks on the cd.

    But I guess that's just me. :(

    Nah, it's not just you. (But then again, you probably expected me to reply!!) Those two tracks alone are worth the cost of the CD.

    I wonder if "Seasons of the Vine" and "Soarin' Over California" (and any other original orchestral music that appears on the OAs, for that matter) were subject to the same reuse fees that film scores fall victim to.

    Considering that the main purpose of the music is for the attractions themselves (much like the film score is recorded for use in the film), the commercial CD might constitute as a reuse of the music and warrant the union fees. That is, of course, assuming that they were recorded using a union orchestra.

    Inquiring minds...

    I am with you here - I would love to get more of the orchestral scores ... but alas soundtrack or park CDs still have to carter to the majority of potential customers. I fear we can only hope for some errant tracks on the main stream releases.

    While there is the theoretic chance we might get more on fan targeted releases or something like the Wonderland System, there is still the legal problem.


    Which reminds that someone had asked why the cd for "The Three Musketeers" didn't include the score while the "Mulan II"-cd does. I assume it is the union problem again. According to the liner notes in the "Musketeer"-CD that CD was recorded in the US, while the "Mulan II"-CD was recorded in the UK (in the Abbey Road Studios). Therefore it seems logical to assume that for the Musketeers a union orchestra was signed, while the orchestra for Mulan II is not governed by those US-union regulations.
