The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies – not just for the amazing movie but because I loved the music so much. So obviously, when I found out that they were coming out with a The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD, I was super excited & even more when I knew I would be able to review it! I'm actually listening to it right now while I write this post. 🙂
The Little Mermaid collection features the songs and score from the film by Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman on Disc One, twelve work tapes and song demos performed by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman on Disc Two, and a collectible 20-page booklet. Also included are liner notes by Alan Menken, John Musker (Co-writer, Director and Producer, “The Little Mermaid”), and Chris Montan (President of Walt Disney Music).
The CD cover and 20-page booklet feature newly created artwork inspired by “The Little Mermaid” from Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Tangled,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “Wreck-It Ralph”). The CD booklet also includes a sampling of visual development art from the film, with notes by Dave Bossert, Producer/Creative Director at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
The Little Mermaid to me is special because it was actually the first Disney movie I ever saw. I was about 5 years old when it came out & I remember longing to have Ariel's long red hair instead of my boring frizzy, dark hair. The songs are what stuck to me the most – I loved them all but I have to admit, I was scared of Ursula & usually hid under a blanket when she sang "Poor Unfortunate Souls".
When I received The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD, I immediately fell in LOVE with the artwork, the stories and for someone who loves to sing along but gets lyrics mixed up, I'm happy that the lyrics are included in the booklet!
As you can see, it includes ALL of the songs & score from the movie. I LOVE it & this would be a great present for any The Little Mermaid fan or a must have for any Disney music lover's collection, that's for sure.
