While we're at it I would love Fun and Fancy Free, Make Mine Music and Melody Time.

The good news being Intrada will surely release obscure movie scores from the Disney archives as time permits, and Disney themselves are remastering and expanding their animated classics.

The future looks bright.


Yes indeed ! You can add THE THREE CABALLEROS to the three mentioned above.


These are the omnibus films I was referring to above.


Now I know what omnibus means. smile

I was in contact with the composer Artie butler who did The Rescuers for Disney and he said his tapes got lost/damaged in the Katrina storm a couple of years back , but would have loved to see his music get a proper release

My heart just sank a whole lot. Perhaps Disney have their own copies in LA?

Since I'm a fan of Harry Nilsson, i've been waiting for ages a CD release of Popeye (with the great demos sang by Nilsson please).

Doug Fake's recent comment about how The Rescuers will be released indicates that Disney does indeed have the masters. Disney seems to have taken excellent care of their tapes, so there should have to be no reliance on composers' personal copies.

Thanks for the update! Does that mean Disney or Intrada has it in it's production line?

He did not specify. He did also say that an expanded release of Broughton's Rescuers Down Under will also be worked on, and I presume that one would be done by Intrada.

Intrada's given the impression that practically everything owned by the studio is on the table and that Disney alone will keep the label in business for a long time. Given their strong connections with both Disney and Universal, they should indeed be around for a long time.

Long before home video was a twinkle in anyone's eye and the other studios were treating their assets like disposable waste once they left the theaters, Disney was regularly rereleasing their films and preserving those elements as ongoing cash cows. One more way in which Walt himself was a visionary, to our culture's long term benefit.

Yes, and he even bought back his earlier work distributed by other companies.
