This Candy Candy CD was first produced by Nippon Columbia Co., Ltd. in April, 1992, following the release of the third CC OVA, "The Candy Candy Movie", that same year. The CD contains 12 catchy, cheerful and melancholic songs composed by Takeo Watanabe along with song lyrics written by Candy's own author, Keiko Nagita (名木田恵子), Toshio Oka (丘灯至夫), and Horie Mitsuko (堀江美都子). Well-known anime singer Horie Mitsuko sang all of the songs except #10 "Suteki na Candy", which was sung by the singing group, Koorogi '73. The singer also wrote the lyrics for the 2nd song "Happy Door" (幸せのとびら). Ten of the songs listed are new compositions which can be heard during certain scenes in the CC movie. Included in the CD booklet are the lyrics of all the songs in japanese. Initially sold for ¥ 2854.
