Keep in mind too that these new records could be entirely different takes and/or mixes from the original OST - Disney is infamous for previously speeding up tracks or parts of tracks on the OST.

i for one would like to see an expanded ROCKETEER at some point from this label.

Other than MULAN and LION KING, is there really that much missing from the contemporary scores. It seems like most of them are well represented on the original albums except for those two..

Tarzan. I am sure I read somewhere that Mancina hadn't finished recording the score by the time the album needed to be assembled.

There's a lot of great stuff missing from The Little Mermaid. The Wolf chase/fight is missing from Beauty and the Beast , Bambi is missing some action music, and chorus at the end of the film.

Plus a fresh remix and remaster if needed, plus song demos, score demos, deleted songs, alt. versions, etc - don't look past Disney's opportunism - they want to make a buck or two with this collectors' series. I'm all for it, in this case smile

I would love to see Make Mine Music and Fun and Fancy Free! Since they've never seen a release, (at least on CD) they might be Intrada territory if the masters exist.

"The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin" are missing at least 30 minutes of score. Some of the best cues aren't even available on the original albums. "Pocahontas" and "Hunchback" are missing a significant amount of music, but "Pocahontas" is at least well represented on the original album. I'm sure a remastering is in order for some of the scores, especially "The Little Mermaid."

This sentence works just as well without the last three words.

Could be is one thing, but can you really see them pushing the boat out to celebrate a movie that doesn't do as good a job of celebrating bonds between siblings as Frozen did (Brother Bear), one of their biggest flops ever (Treasure Planet) and the movie that temporarily killed their cel animation output (Home On The Range)?

No, but I figured I'd make a complete list of possibilities regardless.

Frozen (already!) has a release very similar to this series - the deluxe album has a second disc full of song demos, score demos, source music, alternate and unused songs, etc. It was a very nice release, and something I hadn't expected to see from Disney (usually their special editions just have some covers by Disney Channel artists, maybe 3-4 tracks of demos/deleted songs). Glad to see them taking this tact with a whole series of archival releases.

I confess I usually only hear mr Menken's songs, not so much his scores...

Frankly I consider the consistent inclusion of demos on these special editions a waste of space. I want more of the actual score not the musicians incomplete "sketches". At least with this new series it looks like they are going to give us both.

Tracktimes and some tidbits.

So copies of this Legacy Collection CD were being sold early at Disney World during the Harambe Nights event at Animal Kingdom. I don't want to post a rip of it since it technically hasn't been released yet, but I will spill some dirt on it. This a fantastic album and it's great to see this score finally get a full release. Every bit of music from the final film is here as far as I can tell.

Here's the final tracklist.

Disc 1:
1. Circle Of Life/Nants' Ingonyama (3:59)
2. Didn't Your Mother Tell You Not To Play With Your Food (2:08)
3. We Are All Connected (3:02)
4. Hyenas in the Pride Land (3:51)
5. I Just Can't Wait To Be King (2:52)
6. Elephant Graveyard (4:48)
7. I Was Just Trying To Be Brave (2:16)
8. Be Prepared (3:40)
9. Simba, It's To Die For (0:48)
10. Stampede (3:22)
11. Mufasa Dies (3:27)
12. If You Ever Come Back We'll Kill You (1:38)
13. Bowling For Buzzards (0:30)
14. Hakuna Matata (4:08)
15. We Gotta Bone To Pick With You (1:08)
16. Kings of the Past (2:48)
17. Nala, Is It Really You (4:11)
18. Can You Feel The Love Tonight (2:52)
19. Remember Who You Are (7:48)
20. This Is My Home (2:45)
21. The Rightful King (11:46)

Disc 2:
1. The Morning Report (1:37)
2. Warthog Rhapsody (3:06)
3. We Are All Connected Score Demo (3:05)
4. I Was Just Trying To Be Brave Score Demo (2:16)
5. Stampede Score Demo (3:23)
6. Mufasa Dies Score Demo (3:27)
7. This Is My Home Score Demo (2:28)
8. The Rightful King Score Demo (11:42)
9. Circle Of Life Instrumental Demo (4:02)
10. Circle of Life Elton John (4:52)
11. I Just Can't Wait To Be King Elton John (3:37)
12. Can You Feel The Love Tonight Elton John (4:03)

Some notes:

The main five songs are identical to the versions included in past soundtrack releases.

Track 4 is the scene with Simba talking to Scar up to just before I Just Can't Wait To Be King.

Track 12 is from the scene with Scar telling the other Lionesses that Mufasa and Simba died. The music from the Hyenas chasing Simba out of the Pride Lands is at the end of Track 11.

A snoring sound can be heard at the start of Track 19. Oops.

Timon's Hula Song is at the end of Track 20.

Disc 2 has some online content linked to on the disc. Unfortunately, the website it's being hosted on isn't up yet. It just redirects me to a 403 Forbidden page. There's nothing in the book or on the disc that tells me what it is.

The Morning Report is the version from the Special Edition DVD.

Warthog Rhapsody is the version from Rhythm of the Pride Lands.

Not really sure what the Score Demos are about. They're earlier versions of the music I suppose, but they are still full orchestrations and sound similar to the music from the final film only with a bunch of minor changes here and there. It's still nice that Disney included them and they are neat to listen to.

And the packaging. Rather than being in a standard CD case, this is actually a small book containing lyrics and concept art with two folders for the discs in the back of it. The fact that it's a book is nice, but I'm not a fan of the way the discs are held. It's easy for them to slide out or get scratches if you are not careful with them.

It's a shame that this glory couldn't go to Intrada, but assuming the price is right I will be picking up a good handful of these


Disney isn't licensing any of their classic animated properties to anybody. They want those for themselves and good for them on releasing these to those of us that don't have them.

Thanks for the additional information. Not sure if this has been answered. Are these limited editions or will these be produced years from now as demand merits?

I just hope these releases are successful enough so they can continue the collection the next couple of years.
