Last month at DLR I picked up a cd called "Just The Music Volume 2". It's all instrumental versions of mostly more recent(last 15 years) Disney movies. CM's didn't ever seem to remember seeing Volume 1, and I couldn't find it. Any knowledge of this title?
I picked up Volume 1 of Just the Music at Disneyland's 20th Century Music Company for $16.98 back on December 8, 2001. The CD is manufactured and distributed by NorthSound Music Group and has a copyright date of 2000. Some more info:
Catalog Number: NSCD 40352
The back cover also mentions www.northsoundmusic.com but, unfortunately, there is no site at that location now.
Here's the track listing:
1. When You Wish Upon a Star
2. Beauty and the Beast
4. A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes
5. When She Loved Me
6. Part of Your World
7. Just Around the Riverbend
8. You'll Be in My Heart
9. What Child Is This?
10. Once Upon a Dream
11. Hero of the Story
12. A Gift to You
13. If I Never Knew You
Thanks for the replies. After posting I finally listened to the cd and found just a bit of info on Volume One. The music is very similar to the Instrumental Impressions CD.
I kind of like this stuff because it reminds me of something we might hear in the background around WDW resorts.
1. Can You Feel the Love Tonight
2. A Whole New World
3. Go the Distance
4. Colors of the Wind
6. Winnie the Pooh
7. Under the Sea
8. What If Hippos Danced Ballet
9. So This Is Love
10. I Think I'd Be Perfect For You
11. Fireworks / Jig
12. Baby Mine
Huh? Wazzat? THREE? Uh....maybe I have all 3....I would THINK I do. Goshdarnit, I gotta get more spotlights on that CD holder shelf thingy...the bottom corners are REALLY hard to see and I've got too many to remember what I have. Plus I've got the 2-dozen or so that aren't unwrapped and categorized yet, never mind put in chronological/gendre order .
There are only two volumes of Just the Music as far as I can tell. There are currently three volumes of "Disney Karaoke" with purple, red, and green covers. Some tracks are nearly identical between the sets (Colors of the Wind) while others are totally different (So This Is Love--which happens to be the same on Just the Music Vol. 2 as on Disney's Instrumental Impressions).
BTW, it took me a while to find my copy of Just the Music Vol. 1. Volume 2 was easy to find (and you'd think they'd be together), but after three searches I finally found it hidden along with a few others. Apparently, these are hard to find even if you own them!
I don't think I've actually sat down and listened to any of them but even if had, I woudn't have remembered. But just for the record, in my book, the concepts of "all duplicates of other releases" and "there is no reason to buy them" are not necessarily related .
