The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection - Review and #Giveaway

I received a copy of 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. 

This is one of my favorite Disney Movie's of all time. I can't believe it's been 25 years since the movie's release. Has it really gone by that fast? I remember showing it to my daughter and her delightful reaction to it. She sang the songs and decided her favorite princess was Ariel. So this movie and the songs have wonderful memories for us. This Legacy Collection of songs is incredible, some of the most recognizable and lovable lyrics of all time. This collection was amazing to hear, it includes two CD's of both the original soundtrack from the movie and on the second disc is the composer - Alan Menken and the lyricist - Howard Ashman performing some of the songs. Also you can hear the treasured memories they experienced while making the soundtrack. I also loved the re-discovery of some of the magic in their words and music. It's a beautiful soundtrack that we found ourselves singing over and over. Those are a few special things that we loved hearing on this Legacy Collection album.

What a treat for the whole family hearing it from their voices, it was a delight. I love that the 2 disc set also includes Alan Menken's look back at the whole process he and Howard went through in the development of the music and lyrics. 
Another added bonus is the music sound quality has been improved over the last 2 decades and you can really hear the difference. It's more intense and clear.
Menken said, “The greatest thing about what we do is create something that works in the moment, but also stands the test of time.  For the last 25 years, a generation has grown up with ‘The Little Mermaid’ and it has so greatly influenced them. I hear all the time it’s the soundtrack of so many people’s lives, and that’s a thrilling thing.”

I loved the whole collection of songs; this collection includes 2 discs, plus a 20 page booklet that features newly created artwork inspired by “The Little Mermaid” from Lorelay Bove. The 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. There are so many great bonuses with this collection and that is something I will treasure. It's not just the music but, something to read through and look at as well.
