An Enchanting Soundtrack
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is one of Dysney's finest music scores for a film. Using selections of Tchaikovski's Sleeping Beauty suite, and blending original voice music, it is one of those rare Dysney scores that actually turn out well. I recommend this soundtrack for any Dysney fan. I have not heard any greater score other than Beauty and the Beast. The lyrics are memorable and you can even dance to the music, since it is in fact a waltz. The dramatic selections are syncopated in Maleficent's themes and the love theme between Rose and her prince is unforgettable. This is just as good as Tchaikovski's rendition, so don't consider it a minor work."
A must for Disney collectors!

"Every "Sleeping Beauty" fan will want this latest recording because it is incomplete! Whatever was left out from the last issue is probably here, but don't throw out those vinyls just yet. "Aurora" (soprano Mary Costa) gets cut-off in the middle of her first cantata! A huge chunk of Miss Costa's incredibly beautiful operatic passages (which are included in the video) have been completely edited due to "technical reasons". Balderdash, Mr. Producer! It's 1998, deal with it! Reconstruction treatments need make no apology, especially when they preserve a voice as beautiful and distinct as Mary Costa's. Nevertheless, album producer Randy Thornton deserves high marks for his technical contributions to this hodgepodge of a so-called "Disney musical". Marketing strategy tells me that the next re-issue will produce the corresponding "Never Before In Its Entirety!" soundtrack. In the meantime, this recording is a gem."
