This album was sold as a complementary soundtrack to The Nightmare Before Christmas overlay of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion some years back. It features a collection of “scarols” that were part of the sing-a-long aspect of waiting in the long line of the attraction queue as well as a ride-through of the attraction itself. It has been out of print for some time.
As of this posting, each album is $7.99 at each of the two online retailers linked above. Individual songs are available for purchase but the only way to get either of the ride-through soundtracks is to purchase the entire album. The Haunted Mansion is not a bad price — far cheaper than the CD was selling for at the park years ago. I bought it at $19.98 and did a review on StartedByAMouse.com about it. I’m not sure how much the small world one sold for at the park but I probably balked at buying it basically for one song. I feel much the same way about it in digital format, though I’ll probably pony up the $7.99 to get it.
I’m liking the availability of these park albums and songs, both from the convenience of downloading at home as well as the fact that out-of-print material is becoming available once again. What are your feelings about the parks’ song availability? Have you bought any to add to your collection?
