I have fond memories of The Little Mermaid and the music from younger years. When I had the opportunity to review The Little Mermaid from Legacy Collection CD, I jumped at the chance. I haven't heard this music in years, but I remember the uplifting crowd pleasers like Under The Sea and Kiss The Girl with fondness.

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection is a two CD set packaged in a beautiful CD-sized hardcover book. The book is lovely, it is full color and contains illustrations from The Little Mermaid, song lyrics and extensive liner notes about the film and music. 

Overall, I am really impressed. The soundtrack music is actually better than I remember and is expressive of a range of moods--dramatic, comical, romantic, wistful and more. I highly recommend this for fans of The Little Mermaid of all ages.
