The Last Unicorn is a sad tale of fantasy when  the villainous King Haggard (Christopher Lee) plots to destroy all the world’s unicorns. When a young unicorn (Mia Farrow) learns that she’s in danger and that she may soon be the last of her kind, she leaves the safety of her protected forest and enlists the help of Schmendrick (Alan Arkin), a gentle, albeit clumsy, sorcerer. Together, they embark on a long and dangerous journey with one goal: to defeat Haggard and save the unicorns from extinction. Epic sounding right? Well the soundtrack was composed by Jimmy Webb and actually recorded at the London Symphony Orchestra. The music is sweeping and beautiful. There are two sides to the soundtrack, a vocal side and an instrumental side. Most of the vocals are familiar especially when you factor in the group America. The instrumentals by Jimmy Webb really help this tale come to life.
