From 1928’s Steamboat Willie to such 21st-century hits as Alice in Wonderland and Tron: Legacy, Walt Disney Records celebrates more than eight decades of Disney with A Musical Tour: Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives at the Reagan Library, the official soundtrack to the extraordinary new exhibit presented by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club. The digital album will be available for $9.99 on July 3 exclusively at Amazon.com.

    Lou,
    I love your show and for years I have been trying to convince my father to become a member of D23. I had him sit down and watch the Legends ceremony to prove myself. After much heated discourse, he said we would become members and we may get to go to the next convention!!!!!! Thank you for giving me the lawyer reasons and backing for convincing him to join! (Law school paid off, again thank you) Keep it going!
    Sincerely, one of the biggest Disney geeks, nerd, and on another note- I love the Captain America march, had to play it for orchestra…love the Avengers being added to this list….(Oh! And he National Treasure suite has the prettiest violin solo I’ve ever heard),
    Marisa

    This is a fantastic soundtrack. Turkey in the Straw could be the best tune ever created. Although I’m musically impaired, my mom is a fantastic pianist. Therefore, I will ask her to teach me to play this! I have absolutely no clue how to read music, but I can memorize the keys I’m supposed to hit. It’s just a happy song that I could certainly enjoy just by playing it on the piano. Yes, this is definitely a must-buy.
