    I used to have some vinyl, but that's when I was younger and they have all been lost through the years.

    Primarily, all I collect now are the CDs.

    To date, a great majority of historic Disney material that I enjoy has not been released to CD, so vinyl is essential for a comprehensive Walt Disney era music collection. I just record them to CD for now.

    Wonderland System has helped this situation immensely, as cleaner versions on digital are more than welcome. But they'll never get to everything I like...

    I agree, there is a lot of vinyl out there with unreleased material. Besides the LPs, I have been looking for 78RPMs that were released as cover records. I have made a CD with my favorites ( so far) on them

    Lavender Blue - Dinah Shore
    All the Cats Join In - Benny Goodman
    Your Mother and Mine - Doris Day
    Ferdinand the Bull - The Merry Macs
    The Relunctant Dragon - The Kings Men
    Der Fuhers Face - Johnny Bond and His Red River Boys
    Fun and Fancey Free - Phil Harris
    Say It With a Slap - Loius Prima
    Little Toot - Sammy Kaye
    Melody Time - Vaughn Monroe
    Blue Shadows on the Trail - Vaughn Monroe
    It's Whatcha Do with Whatcha Got - Freddy Martin

    I collect CDs, but I have a couple of sentimental favorites from the LP days that I'm hanging onto - The Camerata Alice LP and the Magical Music of Disney boxed set from the 70's - plus a couple of park picture discs!

    Merlin,
    Were some of those re-released on CD or are they all your 78s transfered to CD?

    A majority have been released on CD's if you search the odd artist complilations and imports (especially from England for Big Band era stuff) - - some are from out-of-print CD's. Amoeba is a godsend for used discs if you live in LA. Have fun - it's like a treasure hunt!

    It has been loads of fun finding the old 78s. I use Mike Murray's book as a guide but I have found many that are not listed in his book.

    Now I am curious..what is the quality on the re-released CDs. I am at the mercy of how well the 78 was taken care of as far as sound quality when I transfer it to CD.

    I would love to see Randy produce a "Disney Cover Record" album of songs from the 40s-50s.

    CD audio quality depends on the individual recording and source. If it's from Decca, RCA or one of the major labels, they are usually nicely cleaned up from masters, if it's from a radio show consider the source, but some odd small labels (or older issues) are mastering from records or old tapes and show the scratches or hiss. It's hit or miss, but I'm happy so many of these have found their way to CD at all.

    Randy would be doing a great service by liscensing these tracks for a proper Disney release, since they seldom ever issued many of these songs on Disneyland/Vista anyhow. But so far, Disney hasn't liscenced Disney tunes from other labels - I wish they would.

    In the meantime, a good place to start is the RCA Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah compilation CD, which is entirely made up of Disney-related RCA recordings of that era.
