Apple announced today (http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2004/apr/21disney.html) that the catalog of Walt Disney Records, including soundtracks from Disney's animated files are now available exclusively on the iTunes Music Store through September 30th.

“We are proud to offer a way for customers to easily own the classic and contemporary Disney music they know and love,” said David Agnew, executive vice president and general manager of the Buena Vista Music Group (BVMG), who oversees Walt Disney Records. “We chose to deliver our digital music catalog exclusively on iTunes because it is the leading global online music store.”

as with other Disney stuff, it gets "Vaulted" and will be unavailable for sale/release for a number of years. This is the same problem that happens with quiet a few of their movies - where you want to buy a copy, and simply can't until it becomes "rereleased" from Disney.

I assume it will just be pulled from the iTMS, the same as a few other songs have had happen - "Channel Surfing" by FeatureCast being one that comes to mind.

I always thought that was an annoying concept, but it always got people like my mother to run out and buy it when they "released." Stupid Disney, I'm glad Pixar moved away from them.

Does it mean that they will be unavailable after September 30th, or that they will only be exclusive until Sept 30th?

Or it is no longer 'exclusive' to the iTMS after the 30th and shows up on other online download stores.

All in all, this is pretty surprising given the bad blood between Jobs and Eisner these days.

I am glad to see this, don't know if I will buy any, but I figured after the break down of negotiations between Disney and Pixar, that would affect other relationships between Disney and anyone that was involved with Steve :cool: Glad this is not the case.

Either there were no hard feelings after the Pixar deal fell apart, or perhaps given Eisner's uncomfortable position since said deal fell apart, the bottom line is worth more than his pride. I'm guessing the latter.

Because its a partial album ("Beyond The Sea" by Robbie Williams was left off"), you'd have to buy the 39 tracks (most of them short) individually.. $39!!!

Agreed.
And as far as vaulting their movies is concerned, I always thought it was a pretty smart marketing idea. As a new parent though, I can't say I enjoy buying a dvd that my kid probably won't watch for a couple of years. But as far as getting the most bang for your marketing buck and getting a nice quick (relatively) burst of sales, I think it's a smart move.

I've said before that I think Disney's vaulting movies makes a lot of marketing sense but I am not sure how much business sense it makes--you gain the sales of the people who go "Oh! A new release!" but you lose the sales of people who think "You know, I would really like to get _____" and then go out and purchase it.

I am not convinced that the latter group is sufficiently smaller than the former group to make up for savings in marketing even over a long period of time (where it does make sense).

Of course, I'm biased, I fall in the latter group :D

This is only good news for iTunes, as it just confirms that iTunes is the leader in legal digital music downloads.

He said, "leading global online music store". And before anyone says something ;) , I doubt this really confirms an international iTunes store is coming, as he probably just meant it is the leading music store in the world.

Instead, Disney favors Apple's proprietary format ;)

Yes, that's more than a little ironic, isn't it?

It makes you wonder if Eisner has authorised a partial retreat for the MouseHouse from an MS bias as a way of a) showing some negotiating room to Jobs and b) shoring up his increasingly tenuous position.

Still good to see a wholesale push to catch the K-6 subset of the K-12 marketplace; some of the older end of that K-6 market must be a major target for iPod mini sales for the holiday season.

First download was Disney Childrens Favorite Songs Volume #1, 25 songs that WE ALL grew up with and only $6.99 for the full album, this rocks. When you have kids Disney is everywhere, this helps bring it into our home and now it is easy to share the same Disney songs with my daughter that I myself grew up to, and I am 31 years old ;)

Cheers Disney and Apple!

Does anyone else find it odd that it costs you nearly $40 to buy the Finding Nemo soundtrack on iTunes? That PLUS they withhold, it appears, a single track so that $40 STILL doesn't buy you the entire SINGLE DISC album (which is only $13.99 on Amazon, BTW).

Seriously - this was THE missing genre of music for me on iTunes.. And It's not just the animation - I was forced to download off the kazaa the pirates of the carribiann soundtrack when itunes didnt' have it - now it's a number one seller on itunes. And what's a better use of 99 cents, than to buy classic disney tunes from the lion king, little mermaid etc.. Must restrain oneself...

And Disney also is pricing things appropriatly - the little mermaid album, has 20 songs for $9.99 - that's the way i like it.

Ahh, but in a bad twist of fate, there are some album only songs that are less than the old practice of 7:30: see: Aladdin - http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?playlistId=6656691 It looks to be good, 21 songs for $10, but the songs done by robin williams are ONLY available by album - contract problems?

Disney just rid itself of the ABC executives. It must be related., Apple doing television editing equipment for cheap and all. MS will probably still get the video aspect of the business, then the audio on the 30th. I hope people get some sense and stop using MS for everything.

asim
Apr 21, 2004, 05:54 PM
disney probably wants a higher share of the royalty, and apple may be willing to put up with it because

1- this will possibly reach new audiences to start buying online music
2- is important if they want to sell ipods to kids
3- sets up a relationship which will be expanded upon in a few years when there is an online movie store. the online movie store that gets disney will have a huge advantage over other online movie stores.

i bet on sept 30 disney has the option of: withdrawing from online audio sales (if they don't like the experiment), keeping an exclusive deal with apple (with a special royalty arrangement), work with multiple online music stores (standard royalty arrangements), or move completely to another music store (with special royalty arrangements that someone, maybe micro$oft, would offer them).

Sounds like some of these "partial albums" are quite the rip-off. See, it's when stupid companies like Disney do stupid things like that, that I would feel justified in (illegally) downloading the songs for free. $22 and $39 for partial albums?! I think not...

That's very strange... I swear it was before--in fact, a lot of the songs that were "album only" seem to have been changed. Either that or I was hallucinating earlier today. I'm not complaining, but it's strange. You still can't get "Prince Ali" from Aladdin, though.

Does this really help out Apple though. I can see along the lines of most complete music store means more people using it meaning more iPods, but I don't see a one to one corilation between Disney Music and iPods sales. If I am the average parent, I would not be buying an iPod for my kid to listen to Disney music on.

If I was Apple I would of stuck it to Eisner, and then done the deal once he was gone. (and that Big Pixar deal was in place)...although this is prob not the brightest idea.

Well, some people might want to read this: http://jimhillmedia.com/main/index.htm

Also, I bet the reason why most of the alblums are partial is due to licensing issues because, as an example, the one Nemo track missing is that Under the Sea one in the end credits. Disney probably only had the rights to sell it in the CD now, but will get it on iTunes soon. Just hold on guys.

They've lost sales from me as a result of this practice. There have been movies that were off the market for this reason and I simply went out and tracked down a used copy for my daughter. Good enough, and Disney missed out on a sale. I think it's a dumb practice and one that I now react negatively to. I really wanted to buy Toy Story and was about to do it when Disney announced that it was going away. I didn't buy it because of that. I still have them on video so screw Disney and their high-pressure crap. I'll buy a movie because I want it, not because I'm being strong-armed into it and now I'm keeping my eyes open for a used DVD of it. And Disney earns $0 when I buy it used. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

It's a great CD. And, even though it's not a Disney soundtrack, the CD Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimerron is not only a great CD, but a good movie as well.

Tron 2.0 (Read: Tron two point oh.) is still in the works. Disney was gauging interest in a new Tron movie through the release of its game. I thought I heard that sales of the game was impressive enough that they are going ahead with the project release in the 2005-2006 timeframe.

C'mon people. Start emailing your congress and get them to slam the record companies. And try the FTC while your at it.

There are articles about the studios jacking up the prices for online music to $2.50 a song! That is more than a CD if you figure in 8 -10 tracks average!

This smells of organized price fixing. I bet they are upset that Apple and others are taking away their greed-er profits.

iTunes and iTMS gives us a chance to buy and listen to what WE want to, WHEN we want to (if its available).

Please, will folks pass this on and get involved.

Sorry for the rant.

This is what I've been reading today, quite shocking if this becomes reality:

iTunes 'could cost $2.49 per song'
By Macworld staff
The major labels are looking at increasing the price of iTunes Music Store downloads to as much as $2.49 – with experts predicting the move could kill the service.


The US record industry believe iTunes song are too cheap, and the five top labels (Universal Music Group, EMI, BMG, Sony and Warner Music) are discussing a price hike ranging from $1.25 to $2.49 per song.


The Washington Square News notes: "At that price, downloading music will become far more expensive than buying CDs, which would practically destroy the online music market.


"This is counter to everything the record companies should be doing. If anything, they should be cutting prices to make it more attractive to download music legally. Instead, this move will push online music junkies back into the world of file sharing. After all, who wants to pay more for less?


"If the price hike happens it would be more logical to buy a CD. You might pay a couple bucks more, but that extra money buys pretty packaging, better sound quality, often some sort of video extra and, significantly, use unrestricted by Digital Rights Management.


"The record industry doesn't understand that the reason people flocked to free downloading services is because music simply costs too much."

This is so absurd....A lot of people will turn to P2P if this becomes reality.... :(

I doubt Disney will "vault" their online music after September 30th. As far as I know, they only do this with their videos and DVDs, but not their soundtracks, though I could be wrong. I think it's an utterly ridiculous practice and is probably a big part of why I don't own any Disney DVDs.

I was searching on iTunes for some Disney tracks and I thought why not search for some tracks. I thought of a song from the movie "Dumbo", but couldn't remember the title so I wanted to hear it for myself. Now I swear I saw the album on there before but now I can't find it. Maybe Disney is taking the tracks away like they did with the DVDs (which IMHO is VERY stupid)...

Or maybe Dumbo just flew away... :rolleyes: :p

I seem to remember that the Disney songs on Itunes was a limited time deal. I think it was due to end in the September time-frame. Disney does this with their home video products (puts them out for a limited time - so they can make a big deal out of the re-release). Maybe they are going to attempt the same thing with their music on Itunes. I'm not a marketing expert but I don't think this is the best product strategy for music.
