Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection: Lady and the Tramp
Continuing in Walt Disney Records celebrated "Legacy Collection" is their latest deluxe 2-CD release for Lady And The Tramp, 1955's animation masterpiece about warm, funny romance between pampered female cocker spaniel and male stray mutt. 

With robust, tuneful Oliver Wallace symphonic score surrounded by delightful songs authored by Sonny Burke, sung by Peggy Lee, this delightful movie ushered in Disney's foray into CinemaScope animation storytelling.

As new process proved challenging for animation as well as theater presentation, Disney prepared both widescreen versions, "standard" versions with optical sound. 

This new 2-CD set, presented from flawless original optical mono scoring session elements (as originally recorded), plus stereo imaging of vocals (also as originally presented), captures rousing musical odyssey with crystal clarity! 

CD 1 offers score, songs from actual soundtrack. CD 2 offers compact disc premiere of original fifties Disneyland Records album of studio re-recorded songs from movie plus "Home Sweet Home" which premiered on Disney's 1997 single disc release. 

Finally under one roof are all the beloved songs and scoring sequences from an equally beloved animation film icon! As with previous Legacy Collection titles, packaging is "Deluxe" collectable book style with full color illustrations, concept art, notes and more.
