I think the track I've been playing most often is "Phony King of England." Who knew a Disney song could be relevant in modern day U.S. A pox on the phony 'king,' indeed. :wink:


Oh yes! Especially these lyrics:

"He stands alone on a giant throne pretending he's the king,
A little tyke who's rather like a puppet on a string.
And he throws an angry tantrum if he cannot have his way,
And he calls for Mom while he's suckin' his thumb."

Sounds pretty accurate. :lol:


rotfl Hadn't really thought about the lyrics that way; but you're definitely right about them.

This is one of my favorite Legacy Collection releases. I've always liked Robin Hood's soundtrack. So, to finally have it officially released is a treat to begin with. But then to add a beautiful restoration to that soundtrack makes it even better.

Then there are some really nice treasures they found for the bonus tracks. The alternate versions of Whistle Stop and Oo-De-Lally are really good. And is it just me, or does it sound like the country version of Phoney King of England could have been recorded at the same time as the Country Bear Jamboree soundtrack? I think so. In fact, as I was listening to it, I could picture a Little John animatronic doing the song as part of the show. And the Louis Prima tracks, especially the first two, sound like they used the same orchestra that they used for the "America Sings" attraction. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. It's just an observation.

And had Robin Hood had closing credits like current Disney films, I could have seen them using Pete Renoudet's version of "Love" as the pop version of the film song (like they did for a lot of the 90's Disney films) and releasing it as a single to promote the film. It's a shame it wasn't. I think it would've been a good little hit for them.

The bottom line is that I think this is a really great release. I'm glad it got released and that they're continuing to release titles in the Legacy Collection. In fact, I liked it so much that I went to Disney Music Emporium's Facebook page to let them know how much I enjoyed it and that I hope they consider releasing even more titles.

Any recent news on the upcoming releases? I've read on the twitter announcement that Hunchback was the most requested.

I'm glad to hear that. Hopefully this means it will be released soon. Surprised they haven't done one for Beauty and the Beast yet and I hope they'll do one for Aladdin soon as well.

We could always hope, my friend.

I actually went looking for news just two days ago. :lol: Nothing on the Emporium website. Also saw some doctored image for the cover art. I almost believed it, too.

I really want a soundtrack or six for the package films. If they wanted to put them in a "Best of" single release, while I'd be sad, I'd still take it. To my knowledge, those six films are the only DAC's without a soundtrack publicly released.

We had absolutely no news after the release of The Aristocats and before the announcement of Robin Hood. They just kept it very vague.
My guess it that the collection kinda underperformed and they don't get as much budget anymore, but someone at Walt Disney Records still thinks the collection is worth of and they just kinda have to collect the budget of a few months to be able to produce the next volume. We just don't know when.
