Disneyland Records on iTunes

Being a big Macintosh fan, I have been using iTunes for what seems like forever. And ever since they first introduced Disney music on iTunes back in 2004, I have been hunting around iTunes looking for any new tracks that they add. Unfortunately it can be tricky to find all the new additions, as just typing in Disney in the search box does not find all the wonderful Disney music there is to be had.
The first Disney related album I found on iTunes (and subsequently purchased) was the 1956 album "Walt Disney Takes You To Disneyland", which just happens to be the first album on the Disneyland Records label. I actually own an actual copy of the vinyl album, but it was great to be able to purchase a mint sounding MP3 version to actually listen to. You may also notice from the picture above, that I was also the first one to do a review of the album on iTunes.
As I said above, it can be a bit of a chore to find the Disney albums on iTunes, but they are there is you look. After searching the web for info on Disney music on iTunes, I did find these two listings which list 31 of the great albums you can find on iTunes. Hopefully with time, even more great old Disney albums will show up. For now, here is a list of some of what you can find on iTunes:
