Beauty And The Beast Soundtrack
After the success of their score for The Little Mermaid, the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken returned to Disney for their second fairy-tale adaptation. Sadly, it was the duo's last completed score before Ashman's untimely death at age 41. This soundtrack contains more-conventional show music than The Little Mermaid, owing in large part to Broadway stalwart Angela Lansbury and to Jerry Orbach's Yves Montand impersonation. Most of the songs here were included in the subsequent Broadway adaptation and its cast album, but this disc is superior in its studio polish and cast, which is better suited to the score. --John Sanchez

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites and I have wanted the soundtrack for a while now. With some Disney movies I could get away with just buying one or two songs from their soundtracks on iTunes, but for this one I needed the whole soundtrack. I am very glad that I got it. I love all the songs! I already know all the words to a few of them and I love singing along. I even enjoy listening to the five instrumental songs (no vocals).
I definitely recommend this to fans of the movie!
- It is an understatement to say this thing is pretty. We weren't even sure we were going to use it since it looked so nice.
- Contains all songs/talks from movie
- Sound was great and no defects!
- No cover included. We will be using our own.
