Some great news from Russell Schroeder:

[Hi, Didier,

I thought you might like to know that I have a second volume of deleted musical numbers from Disney films at the printers and will be available in September. It is (imaginatively) titled DISNEY'S LOST CHORDS VOLUME 2.

Like the previous volume, this one is also hard cover, dust jacketed, and a signed limited edition of 1,000 books. It, too, is priced at $75.00 US.

This new volume is larger, however, with 384 pages and over 300 illustrations.

A few of the films represented are SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, PINOCCHIO, DUMBO, THE ARISTOCATS, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS, ALADDIN, POCAHONTAS, and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. Additionally, I was able to include 5 of Sammy Fain and Jack Lawrence's original songs for SLEEPING BEAUTY.

Quite a few Academy Award-winning composers are included, such as Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, Frank Churchill, Ray Evans and Jay Livingston, Henry Mancini, and Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman.

This volume will be available for mail order from:
Voigt Publications
2055 Lower Tuskeegee Road
Robbinsville, NC 28771

Because of the worldwide interest in the first volume I have checked on several international shipping rates. They are as follows:
Europe, Japan, and South Africa: $38.95
Canada: $23.95
United States: $9.80 (optional insurance $2.30)

If there are any questions they may be addressed via e-mail to

All the best,

Needless to say, I loved volume 1 so much that I will be the first one to order volume 2.

Hi there,

I'm a regular visitor to this fascinating blog and I have a keen interest in Disney's Live-Action work in England in the 1950's. In particular the largely forgotten movie, the 'Story of Robin Hood' made in 1952. I have a blog dedicated to the movie and the legend.

A few months ago I posted on here asking where I could find some information on Disney's producer Perce Pearce. You kindly put out an appal on this site, but sadly nothing materialised. Is there anywhere I might be able to find out about his life and legacy?

No idea, unfortunately. But if you manage to find some info and want to write an article about him, I would LOVE to publish the results of your research in WP.
