    Thanks for the heads up regarding the Legacy edition of Dave Digs Disney. Yes, there have been some wonderful jazz interpretations of Disney over the years.

    See, Rodney? I've been helping Joel spend HIS money, too! :laugh:

    By the way Joel, when I was near my Disney CDs the other day, I saw another Jazz disc that is a must-have. It is called Beauty and the Beast by The Jazz Networks.

    Great musicianship (among the players is Roy Hargrove). From the mid-90s.

    Here's a taste and once you go to this YT page, you'[ll come across the other tracks from the CD:

    Jake, I think you asked elsewhere about the Cars 3 CD's. I just got in from the movie and was able to go through the soundtrack CD.

    This will be non-spoilery and not movie-based...just observations on the soundtrack.

    First, I have no idea why this couldn't have been one CD. The score is under an hour; the soundtrack is a half hour. Surely it could have all fit on one disc.

    Second, as for content...the songs are okay. I am heavily partial to the Cars soundtrack with songs like Find Yourself, Life is a Highway and Route 66. They seem more catchy to me, but that can be with the benefit of time. These tracks don't remind me of the movie aside from Run That Race.

    Third, I wonder about the choice of artists. The only one I recognize is Brad Paisley. Sure, he is a staple of this series; I'm just not there with his tracks.

    It's under $7 on Amazon right now. For the casual listener, I wouldn't spend the money. For the completist, sure, get it. The $7 hopefully won't break the bank. The score is $10, meaning for under $20 (the normal price of a movie of CD) you can have both sets of music.

    Speaking of...the Robin Hood Legacy Collection set is on Amazon for preorder. They have the street date as August 4, which makes sense. D23 isn't until early July and that's where the set will be available first. Price right now is $19.98, which also makes sense in context of the series. I have it preordered in case I can't snag a copy somewhere in Anaheim when I'm there on D23 week.

    Thanks for the report, Jason. I agree that the first Cars soundtrack is pretty terrific. Unfortunately, I didn't like the third film enough -- and didn't find the music memorable enough either -- to feel the need to buy these CDs.

    Well...I thought I had a better picture than this...but I think I am actually remembering a shot of me taken in some 8mm home movies that were shot during our trip to Queens.

    So, maybe someday I'll be able to show a small clip from that.

    But in the meantime, here's a few quick images from June, 1964.

    You can't really see the fabulous blue felt hat with the big pink feather...but, here goes:

    [​IMG]

    That's my sister (ten years old at the time) and me (5-years old) just after arriving. No hat yet.

    We saw Mickey at one of my favorite attractions!

    [​IMG]

    And there's the hat(!) in glorious faded black and white. I'll have to dig up those home movies and figure out how to link to a clip here sometime down the road. I believe this exhibit had something to do with the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln exhibit.

    Don't worry. I'm gonna put away the family photo album now! :D

    It is worth noting that today is the 20th anniversary of the original theatrical release of Hercules in 1997.

    I feel old now.

    But my point, in bringing it up in this thread, is: where the hell is the Legacy Collection edition of that score? The Lion King (20th), Pocahontas (20th) and The Little Mermaid (25th) Legacy editions arrived in the month of their anniversaries.

    While I'm glad they are at least reopening the Legacy Collection with Robin Hood in August, I would much rather have Hercules than Robin Hood. And I already own the original Hercules soundtrack -- as opposed to Robin Hood, which I do not own -- and I'd still rather have Hercules.

    I hope Disney does not waste this opportunity to give us Hercules at some point later this year. Not to mention Aladdin, which will hit its 25th anniversary in November.
