"Remember the Magic" album controversy

To the Disney Discussion Members:

Hello, my name is John Garretson- the creator of the upcoming DisneySoundtracks website. I am a huge fan of this site. I never even knew it existed until last month and I must say that it?s Heaven for Disney music fans. What a great idea! Kudos to the site creator.

I must apologize for the ?Remember the Magic? album controversy. I contacted the CD?s seller on eBay and ask him for the label number and official album information. It turns out that he obtained the disc from a Disney World park employee who created his own album of various hard-to-find Disney tunes that he had access to. I kindly reminded him of the consequences for selling those kinds of discs and he politely responded, saying that that was the reason he removed it from the auction.

I apologize for the upset over this topic. The DisneySoundtracks website will not, and I repeat, will not promote illegal albums or downloads.

Hope to see you all at the DisneySoundtracks website in May.

John Garretson
Many Thanks for this,

There has been so many bad auctions on Ebay, and Im sure I am not the only one who has gotten a bad burn from a seller not coming through with what they were selling or suppost to be selling. Its becoming harder and harder now as time goes by to obtain very rare things, because the market [ebay] is filled with nothing but bootlegs and people trying to make an easy dollar.
I agree with what you say about ebay. I would also like to add that I've been collecting Disney recordings since the mid-seventies, and in my opinion, these are the best of times. There was ZERO of this stuff available fifteen years ago.

I remember being a kid in the 70's, standing on line for Space Mountain and thinking "I would love this "music" of com-chat, and RCA jingles, etc; but they'd never issue it for sale. I'm probably the only one here who would buy that." When I think of how much cool music from men's rooms I have acquired over the last three years, it blows my mind. Think about it, there was pretty much one Official Album available per decade, and that was it. There isn't much we don't have right now. Yes, we all have wish lists, but how long were those lists before 1995? We have about eighteen versions of the MSEP alone. Remember when it was just that short, edited track? Man, these are good times.
