Poor show Disney,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sing-A-Long Mary Poppins (Audio CD)
One would think that with the vast amount of talent at their disposal, Disney would produce a stunning `Singalong' album.
But not so, to start with the CD artwork, is very poor, not typical of the Disney product, it looks cheap and tacky.
As it turns out the CD recording is of a similar standard.
Firstly we have 8 songs from Mary Poppins, most seem to have the original orchestral tracks, but somehow thin and distant.
The songs are sung by third rate Karaoke singers, some really cringe worthy.
Why not use the original vocal versions that we all know and love?
Next on the cd the same eight songs without the vocals, yes the orchestral tracks do sound better, but the vocal line has been replaced with a really nasty synth overdub, hideous!
My advice would be give this CD a miss and buy one of the many splendid Disney compilation discs, which can be picked up for pennies on Amazon.
