    BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Walt Disney Records (WDR) is proud to celebrate its 50th anniversary with the November 7, 2006 release of Disney: The Music Behind the Magic, a special 2-disc commemorative edition set filled with the music that has been enchanting and entertaining audiences for generations.

    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban
