This just in:

[The Silly Symphony Collection is a first-of-its-kind box set from Walt Disney Records and Fairfax Classics featuring the complete restored soundtracks from all 75 Silly Symphony shorts from 1929-1939, with over 8 hours of music spread over 16 vinyl LPs. The collection is housed in 8 tip-on gatefold jackets with original animation art in a beautifully constructed foil-stamped and numbered slipcase. Soundtracks of Disney classics such as “The Skeleton Dance” by Carl Stalling, “Three Little Pigs” by Frank Churchill, and Donald Duck’s debut “The Wise Little Hen” by Leigh Harline will be presented in full for the first time ever on record. Each gatefold jacket includes detailed liner notes for every short by Disney historians J.B. Kaufman and Russell Merritt, authors of the definitive book on the Silly Symphonies.

    Fans can stay tuned to for news, updates and pre-order information.
    Every D23 guest who pre-orders the collection will instantly receive a special 10” single featuring the complete soundtracks to The Skeleton Dance and Three Little Pigs.]

so what about CD versions for those of us who prefer music that doesn't sound scratched up after 5 playbacks?

Seriously, while I respect that vinyl is better in principle, it is also MUCH more fragile and I pretty much can't tolerate listening to LPs because I can hear the little pops too clearly.

Yes, but will it contain the FULL soundtrack to Three Little Pigs?
