Mind you, with its overly effusive vocal performances by principals Christiane Noll and David Burnham and overly busy arrangements by nine different orchestrators!, it is by far the worst version of this music ever recorded. But at least the liberties taken with the story are less apparent on disc, even if the titles of some of the instrumental pieces are likely to surprise longtime fans: "Evil Duo"? "Balloon Rescue"?

But at least the liberties taken with the story are less apparent on disc, even if the titles of some of the instrumental pieces are likely to surprise longtime fans: "Evil Duo"? "Balloon Rescue"? The album begins by borrowing Barbra Streisand's medley of "I Have Dreamed," "We Kiss in a Shadow," and "Something Wonderful" from her 1985 The Broadway Album which was played under the film's closing credits, so at least you can't say there's no good singing on it.
