After wearing out my cassette of this soundtrack, I decided to buy the CD. Mistakenly bought the original Broadway cast production, I felt it lacked alot of the nuances, intensity & drama of the movie soundtrack. We LOVE this CD. My children have listened to it since they were 2 or 3 years old, & now at 9 & 11 yrs old, still don't care for Broadway show/type musicals or soundtracks except for this one. I have always felt there was something magical about the story, the movie & the music - apparently have passed it on to another generation.
