Soundtrack to the sophisticated 1982 Rankin/ Bass children's movie. The film stars the voices of Mia Farrow, Jeff Bridges, Christopher Lee and Academy Award winner Alan Arkin. The soundtrack was composed by Pop songwriter Jimmy Webb ('McArthur 'Park') and performed by America. Initially, the film and soundtrack were not the huge successes that the studios expected, but both have grown in stature over the past few decades, with new dedicated fans drawn to the story and the music. Contains 15 tracks, including 'The Last Unicorn', 'Man's Road', 'In The Sea' and 'Now That I'm A Woman'. EMI.

The only bad thing about this CD is that Peter Beagle, the author of The Last Unicorn, has never gotten any royalties from this collection. He is such an incredible, wonderfully sweet man who deserves all the happiness in the world! :) if you ever get to meet him someday, you will find that he makes your soul smile. :)
In all honesty, I did not pay the $20 or so. I purchased a "used" (about $10 with shipping) but still in original shrink-wrap CD, and received it two days later! I am so impressed when I get something so quickly from a seller. I have managed to have remarkably good luck with sellers as well, and if you have never purchased from one, never fear, for Amazon and EBay are both fiercely protective of their customers and on the rare (only two) occasions when I have requested my money back, it has been returned forthwith.
The CD is all in English as is the case. It is only that the name is also in German. There is no information inside, except how to care for CD's (which is written in English, French and German) As you may have seen in other reviews, Mia Farrow's vocals are not on this soundtrack, and in fact when Amalthia sings with Prince Lear in the song "That's all I've got to say" in the movie, it is the same woman who sings on the CD and in the song "Now that I'm a Woman". To be honest, I find her voice much more pure and beautiful than that of Mia Farrow's.
Regardless, this is a wonderful soundtrack! The music is really incredible, and stands on it's own very well. If you loved the movie, you already love the soundtrack, and it truly is worth every penny. (Whether it be $10, $2 or even more!) If you know the music and film as well as I do, when you listen to the various musical tracks without vocals, you may be able to hear the dialogue. :-)
When the CD arrived we played it and it was really great to hear the music on audio. It makes very well for the film, but it is also good alone.
Sound quality is OK. As my younger daughter says, some female vocals are "wrong" (don't take it serious, she is 6 soon). In fact that means that female vocal differs from one in the movie.
The booklet has cover page as stated in the item description and back page, nothing inside, but that doesn't lower the overall estimate of the item and the impressions.
This import CD is worth paying extra money!
