Little Mermaid Legacy Collection Review and Giveaway

I can hardly believe that The Little Mermaid is celebrating its 25th anniversary. I vividly remember the very first time I watched it. My boyfriend and I took my sister and cousin to the movie premiere. They must have been 7 or 8 at the time, and I cried harder than they did.  I knew I would love the movie forever, and I was right.

The Little Mermaid launched a new generation of Disney movie musicals, and a whole generation has grown up with the music.  I bought a movie soundtrack CD many years ago (long before I had kids!) and I still know all the lyrics to all the songs.  Now, a new generation of kids will grow up listening to Kiss The Girl, Under The Sea, and all the beloved songs from the movie, with the Walt Disney Records' 25th anniversary release of The Legacy Collection: The Little Mermaid.  Disc 1 features the songs and score from the film by Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, and Disc 2 features work tapes and song demos performed by Menken and Ashman.  The collection also includes a 20-page booklet with gorgeous artwork and liner notes.  I absolutely love Disc 2 because it really gives fans a glimpse into how the songs started out.  You get to hear the artists behind the words and music.  Listening to Disc 2 is somewhat bittersweet because Howard Ashman died of AIDS in 1991, but it's so good to know that his legacy lives on in his words.

Here is the track list:
