Alan Menken's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991) - Disney Legacy Collection

Recommended Posts

In comparing it to other tracks, despite an album edit or two, it coincides with part of Belle Enter's Beast's World on the Legacy Collection.  In short, it's superfluous.

yes, I edited my post above.

 

weird, that ost version. I guess it was in USA like that (before the special edition cd)?

Everyone was missing the thrilling wolf attack music.

That's the version I grew up listening to on cassette, when I got the CD as an adult it had a different version.  It was strange.

 

Either way, I'm glad the mystery is solved. Thanks for the teamwork.

Having listened to this release, hear are my impressions. Everything from the songs to Alan Menken's wonderful score is remastered, and it all sounds amazing. Not only are all the songs presented on this release, but Alan Menken's complete score for the finished film is included. The only thing missing is the early version of "Death of the Beast". However, that can be found on the previously released Special Edition soundtrack. The only minor setback is that a few tracks bleep into the next: "Main Title - Prologue" bleeds into "Belle", "Tonight's the Night" bleeds into "Beauty and the Beast", "Beast Lets Go" bleeds into "The Mob Song", and "Battle On the Tower" / "Death of the Beast" bleeds into "Transformation." However, these tracks technically segue into each other as in the film. It only becomes slightly jarring if you want to listen to one of these tracks individually. Besides that, this release is great.

The labels should know that bleeding tracks are a no-go nowadays. The Burbs, Hook and Star Trek: Insurrection are the only scores I know that still have it.

If the tracks were built to segue into each other, it’s a completely valid choice on album.  Too many clean endings and clean openings and some scores with short tracks sound like sessions leaks.

There were two versions of the original soundtrack release, one had an alternate version of West Wing as you see above.  It is indeed genuine.

 

 

Good call, updated.

 

The West Wing/Wolf Attack has an odd transition here.  The West Wing cue seems to be cut short before Wolf Attack begins.  In the film, the transition is much more fluid and natural as if it was one piece.

Then join them to one track! It doesn't make sense to seperate them, when it is just possible to listen to them together.
