Do you have any further information ('cause I couldn't find any).
Is Disneymania 3 actually including Clay Aikens version of "Proud of your Boy"?
"Radio Disney Jingle Jams" - what is that? I mean, I got used to the Radio Disney Jams series with all the pop songs from the radio station sometimes with one or two Disney related songs thrown in for good measure (and to get us fans to buy the CDs) - even so interestingly none of those made it to the Ultimate Radio Disney Jams Best of CD . But Jingle Jams?? A radio jingle here in Germany is referring to those short 20 to 50 second long pieces of music that are signatures of radio stations, programs etc.
Dirk, the Jingle Jams CD is a Christmas/Holiday version of the Radio Disney Jams CD's. I think there was one already called Holiday Jams...I think that was the title. "Jingle" is a little bit confusing if you're not used to seeing it used in that way, and I can understand why you thought it might mean commercial jingles.
Here is the press release from the Walt Disney Records. This should answer some of your questions I don't have any further info on Disneymania 3...

Well, the CD came out today, and the track listing is the same as it was in the press release - the usual tracks from the soundtrack, plus the demo versions of PoyB and High Adveneture. That saves me $11 at least. :
I'm curious why they put High Adventure on there. It seems a bit random.
I realize it partly has to do with the IMAX releases, but after the lovely cover artwork for "Beauty" and "Lion King" for the Special Edition Soundtracks, the cover art for Aladdin's is downright GAUDY.
And I agree, the inclusion of "High Adventure" is REALLY random.
Anyone checked to see if Target or Beat Buy have different versions with bonus tracks, ala "Lion King" and "Brother Bear"?
Whoops! Sorry guys. Not only did I forget to check this topic again, but I also got my "lions" crossed.
The Target version of "The Lion King: Special Edition" didn't come with an additional track, exactly, but an additional DISC. The special edition soundtrack itself is identical to the ones released in every other store, but also included is a copy of the "Rhythm of the Pride Lands" disc.
"Rhythm" however, DOES contain an additional track this time around: the "Disney Channel Circle of Stars" rendition of "Circle of Life" (that we all know and *love*) which was heard on the Lion King DVD. The new "Circle of Life" is track #1, and the rest of the "Rhythm" album follows in sequence in the same order as it's previous pressings.
I should also note, though, that both of these discs are packaged together in a double-disc standard-size jewel case. The back (tray) liner's INSIDE features a tracklisting for "Rhythm" and both CD's booklets are included. There might possibly have been a sticker on the front of the wrapper summarizing all this and I THOUGHT it also said this was a Target Exclusive, but I don't remember for sure.
Anyways, sorry if this is old information I'm drudging up, and if not, hope it's helpful.
If memory serves... there was a "special edition" of the lion king cd when it was originally released. I think that the "Sam Goody" / "Musicland" chain of stores offered a Picture CD (with no new tracks). This trend continued for at least the Pocahontas (I think) and Hunchback soundtrack CDs (which is pictured on this site).
So the trend of Target doing their own limited editions isn't new. Then there were the days that the Disney Store (gasp) would do their own special editions of the soundtracks.
