Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection - The Little Mermaid

I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network.  No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

The Little Mermaid is one of the first Disney movies I recall seeing in a theater. It is a classic Disney movie and I was very excited to share it with both of my girls when they were old enough. "Under the Sea" is our favorite song and both girls dance around the living room when it comes on. So you can imagine how excited we they were when I received a copy of the newly released Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection - The Little Mermaid to review.

We listen to music a LOT in the car on our way to/from school and daycare and this CD collection has lived in my car stereo since it arrived.  My inner child loves the movie soundtrack, and my adult #DisneySide loves all the extras included in the two disc collection.  The jacket holds the stories and lyrics for all the songs, complete with newly created artwork from Lorelay Bove, an artist with Walt Disney Animation Studios, as well as some of the visual development sketches from the film.  Disc one contains the original soundtrack while disc two contains the "work" behind the soundtrack - demos recorded by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman.  Want to hear "Poor Unfortunate Souls" before Pat Carroll performed it?  Well, here's your chance!

The collection is available on Walt Disney Record's new site, Disney Music Emporium.  This new site is a destination for collectible Disney music products plus several other neat features.  The next collection, The Legacy Collection - Fantasia, will be available beginning next week!
