I have always been a Disney fan and I feel that this CD Series is the best gift you could give to a Disney Fan! I feel that it covers just about all of the best films that Disney has created. I love that there is even an album just for DISNEYLAND! I just love going to the theme park. We plan on going to there in April 2016. It will be the first time that my daughter has been there so I know that she will be thrilled to go and see some of her favorite characters and ride on the rides. I have already been there several times. I just enjoy seeing all of the sights and going on several of the rides. There has been a lot of new rides added to the parks since I had last been there.
This CD series combines great songs, background scores and rare recordings from over a half-century of animation classics–plus music from Disneyland® Park. In addition to remastered tracks, each album in Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection Box Set comes in its own hardcover book, filled with art treasures, exclusive essays, and new illustrations by Lorelay Bové, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Tangled”, “Winnie the Pooh”, “Wreck-It Ralph”). Bove was recently named one of ‘10 Animators to Watch’ by Variety (March 3, 2015) and her art can be seen in the hardcover book, Lovely: Ladies of Animation: The Art of Lorelay Bove, Brittney Lee, Claire Keane, Lisa Keene, Victoria Ying and Helen Chen.
Designed for display, all 12 albums are presented in a specially fitted collectors’ slipcase. The 28-disc Walt Disney RecordsThe Legacy Collection Box Set contains over 130 songs; 270 instrumentals; 75 “Lost Chords” deleted songs and demos; and much more–totaling over 25 hours of matchless entertainment for all ages.
