    Disneyland 60th CD Release (Legacy Collection)

    Hiya Guys! The Legacy Collection: Disneyland was not intended to be a part of the Diamond Celebration. It was designed as part of The Legacy Collection celebrating the music from The Park. The Park just wanted a window of exclusivity. Unfortunately, this makes it appear as though it was created...

    Were the Rescuers Masters Really Destroyed?

    Hey Melton, Eyore, and Trout, Actually it was Artie Butler that scored “The Rescuers” and not Buddy Baker. I also don’t recall a soundtrack album to the film ever being released, at least not produced by Walt Disney Records (or Disneyland Records at the time) in the US. Some score may have...

    The Spirit of a Venture: Walt Disney Records and Intrada

    I realize the last time I posted was shortly after the Bronze Age, but I've been extraordinarily busy these last several months. One of the things I've been working on is a new venture between Walt Disney Records and the Independent record label – Intrada. We have partnered with our friends at...

    WDR Update 2010

    Well, I hope that I may be able to alleviate at least a little of your frustration with some pretty cool news. But first – I again must apologize for being away for so long, and I still haven't been able to respond to my messages. But as I mentioned in my last post, it's been extremely busy...

    WDR Update 2010

    I apologize for my absence over the last several months. It's been quite busy 'round here, as it's been a time of transition as well as brand new opportunities. Within the last six months I've been able to generate numerous project proposals and we're working to streamline the administrative...

    Questions on OA Tracks and Other Tidbits

    In reference to almandot's post, I actually prefer to wear a shirt :lol: . For Lights, Motors, Action I had the full score cues from the original recording sessions. Though these cues appear in sequence, they are edited for use in the show to underscore the choreography (which can then be...

    The Sherman Brothers Songbook

    You may have noticed that The Sherman Brothers Songbook’s General Release Date has been delayed to October 15th – though the product is finished and was readily available at D23 (and I believe is available at the Parks). The reason for the delay is, it was decided late in the game that the...

    The Haunted Mansion CD / LE Box Set [2009]

    Ooops! After re-reading my response to The Trout, I discovered that when I edited it to correct a spelling error, I inadvertently deleted a paragraph about my theory of what he may be hearing. Kinda the whole point of the post. So, I'll add that bit now: Seeing that I used very few de-noising...

    The Haunted Mansion CD / LE Box Set [2009]

    Hiya Trout! The vinyl does use the restored master. Concerning the Walt Disney Takes You To Disneyland vinyl, I'm puzzled by what you're hearing. The original master was in excellent condition and very little restoration was done – mostly fixing edits, balancing, and EQ. After I read your...

    The Haunted Mansion CD / LE Box Set [2009]

    THE BIG BLACK BOX Before you start fretting over the Haunted Mansion box, I want to assure you that no additional tracks of audio are included. The audio between the 2 CDs is exactly the same. It was actually something I insisted on when I was approached to create an exclusive for the event...

    Musical Surprises from Randy?

    It's absolutely amazing how fast information travels these days! Even silly and obscure stuff like this :P . Scott was in my office this afternoon when he posted that message and within an hour or so, Tannerman made his post here. Wow. I do have some surprises in store. As a matter of fact, I'm...

    The World's Fair Set and More

    Hiya Michael! You guessed correctly, the "Mirror Maze" was used as you exited The Carousel Theater. Technically, the Speedramp and the Mirror Maze were the same conveyance systems. The Mirror Maze, as the name implies, used mirrors and lights as a cool optical effect. "The Mirror Maze" track...

    Alternate Universe Summer Magic

    Hiya DisneyChris! This is just a guesstimation, but both were Buddy Baker arrangements of Sherman Brothers tunes. I also think that with these two projects in development so close to each other (Summer Magic was released in 1963), a bit of style from one may have influenced the other - either...
