This is a GREAT idea.There's a lot of unreleased Epcot music. Future World attraction ride-thrus.World Showcase area music. I guess we've been waiting for something like this for a long time.Maybe it will finally be released.
Wow! That would be OUTSTANDING!! There has been some amazingly great music at Epcot. Much of it isn't even used anymore. It would be great to have a collection of this excellent music in full CD quality.
As far as what goes on it... Here are my picks...
Full ride throughs of Future World Attractions- especially Horizons, Journey into Imagination, and multiple versions of Spaceship Earth.
All Three Epcot Entrance Loops. (These are and were some of the best loops in WDW history)
Music from World Showcase:
Attractions and Live Performers
The more I think about this, the more excited I get. Make sure you reply to this thread and let anyone that reads it know that you are interested. I for one would be willing to pay quite a bit for a Musical History of Epcot Center!
I think it would amazing to see one of these for Epcot's 25th Anniversary. Several people that I talk to about WDW always mention Epcot's music- even people that are just casual Disney-goers. There really is a lot of great original music that was composed just for Epcot.
I have a prototype done with some of the suggestions above. I tried to find some of the best recordings of what I had. Some turned out to be live, which offered the best sound quality, and others like HISTA pieces were great quality but not all together, so I used them separately.
If someone might like to suggest how I would ZIP these up and post them somewhere, I'll do it.

Unfortunately it's a live recording, not a source recording, though I've been everywhere in search of the source audio. Still, it sounds OK.
I have access to all of the resources you mentioned, but I hadn't considered Disney Central Torrents. Might be nice to get it out there and being shared among the MP3 community instead of having to serve 50 million requests for this off my own server.
I want to do a bit of revision on this first, and I added 1 more track - the source audio from Impressions de France. I'll probably make it into 4 CDs instead of the three you see here, and I'd like to get clean(er) copies of Food Rocks and Kitchen Kabaret in a single file if I can find them.
I'm changing the order a bit and adding a few more tracks. I'm on Disc #4 now, and I'm really trying to see what I can weed out... it's hard when there's so much great music from Epcot! I'll be posting the URL soon.
