Great mini-album but missing one VERY IMPORTANT gem
As the title suggests, it contains songs from all the 3 Toy Stories that were considered favorites. There's no doubt about that here. Good highlights with 2 songs from each of the 3 movies. If that's the balance they tried to maintain, then that's one of the flaws they made for this release. And that flaw is them NOT including either (one of the two would've been nice) the original version or the duet version [with Lyle Lovett] of the MOST IMPORTANT SONG in the whole Toy Story series: "You've Got A Friend In Me".
Yes, this release is good for the new generation but at the same time, you have people who haven't bought any of the Toy Story CD soundtracks since it came out. This could have been the perfect catch-up release for anyone who hasn't bought any of the Toy Story CDs.
Still in the end, this makes a nice mini-album. The new material for the third installment in the series have found their right place to be in the movie and in this album. "We Belong Together" sets a nice closure to this album and the movie. It's just that "You've Got a Friend in Me" is stuck in my head since seeing Toy Story 3 (and the fact they used this song in the beginning montage). It's real sad to not see it in this release.
*Try to understand that this is coming from a customer who buys music CDs regularly. I could buy the song seperately here in iTunes but I want CD quality, which is better quality than the whole EP sold here on iTunes.
