I'm a little confused... If this is not a remaster or reissue, how is it reprocessed for stereo sound? When was it reprocessed?

Don't blame me for not understanding this ancient technology; it's older than I am.

This is awesome. My best friend is having her first child in the fall and she is a HUGE Disney fan. What a great 'out-of-the-blue' gift! She's going to LOVE it, and I can't wait to share it with the little one!

I don't think you realize how short most of these songs are. These aren't medleys, these songs are just 1:30 long. Records have plenty of room for songs on them, divide the # of tracks on there by 45 minutes, potentially 52 depending on the kind of record really..

i'm going to play these for my Disney-lovin 5 and 3 year old kids! awesome! they actually are familiar with records somewhat since their Granny has a 45 jukebox that plays real records. I have a similar Ion record player it's pretty cool that it plays on the computer and transfers the songs to mp3.

You're probably too young to even know what a record is.



Better sound quality, seriously? If by that you mean, roughly half the frequency support which deteriorates over time, then yes. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate one's preference for a "dynamic" recording medium. But, it is hardly better sound quality.

We shure seem to be getting some gosh darn good comments from some awfully swell good time folks out there!

Dang it all if the only record player I have is a 78 rpm one. It plays the good music all you modern kids don't play anymore. Shucks.

Wish upon a lucky star, and maybe I'll git a proper new turntable some time...

It is better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than to be in the air wishing you were on the ground.

1978 Records had stereo sound.
In for one and I'm not sure why yet.

Oh wow...I have these. I'm only 34 years old and have this collection stored in my garage. Mine's a bit worn. Seeing as how these are the originals and not repos I'm debating a purchase so I can have a mint set.

Wow, I didnt know nostalgia had a price that big. It would be better to send flyers by mail to people who still own record players and want this for their great great grandchildren. COD works best.

CD's are electronicaly clipped (Shorted at the top and bottom of the sound wave)audio, records are not. A good record has a full sound a cd does not. Check your electronic books and listen to your audiophile friends. I spent 18 months and 30k to learn this in 1992.

My girlfriend is a Disney freak so this was a no brainer for me. I bought it without a second though as these records are older than we are (I'm 26). I love vinyl and I can't wait to hear the soundtracks to the original movies over the oldschool method. Thank you woot!

To all of you who are complaining about vinyl. You have no ears. Your ear drums march to the beat of cell phone ring tones. Over compressed and over appreciated at best.

Go buy Neil Young's Harvest on LP. Get a good system, sit down and listen. You will be crushed by the dynamic range and your stupid Silver Sun Pickups mp3s will blow away into the derivative dust that they are.

Even Donald Duck on a record sounds better than Green Day on an Ipod.

I just can't see paying $20 for an LP set that's been sitting in a warehouse for 30 years. I am a Disney soundtrack fan though; if this was a CD and book set, I'd probably be jumping right on it.

I just don't get the nostalgia aspect reflected in the posts. If you haven't lived through it, trust me, changing the LP every 20 minutes really really gets old.

C'mon people, there are many Walt Disney soundtracks on CD currently available. And you can pick up a ton of Disney CD's (and even LPs if you really want them) on ebay any day of the week.

I bought a pair of Klipsch Forte speakers back in the 80's

If you can buy a pair on ebay and arrange for physical pick up* you won't be disappointed (unless the prior owner abused them)

* - Physical pickup because they are HEAVY

Um, CDs aren't compressed. You are probably thinking of MP3s.

CDs are digitized, as opposed to the analog of records, so there is debate on whether you can hear the difference on a good system. CDs are capable of a much wider dynamic range than LPs (not to mention not wearing out with repeated plays), but unfortunately, most CDs are engineered so poorly that the range can actually be less than a good LP.

It would have been "reprocessed" in 1978. The source movies / cartoons would have been mono. Even by then, most movies (and theaters) were still mono sound.
