Product Description

Product Description

2006 celebrates 40 years of the world's most beloved movie musical. The 40th anniversary edition features four unreleased bonus tracks, interviews and more. Sony. 2005.

Amazon.ca

Rodgers & Hammerstein wrote the music for this film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. The scene in which Andrews crests a hill with her arms spread singing the title track is one of the greatest in American film. Hearing that song forever fills the listener with that image, and remains as fresh and even chilling as it was initially. Unfortunately much of this has been co-opted by television advertisements or whatever, and so could languish because of the clichéd quality of it. Fortunately, conductor Irwin Kostal delivered a wonderful score, and the vocal delivery is as vibrant as any in the storied history of film musicals. --Scott Wilson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What can I say? The Sound of Music is a wonderful and lovely CD. You watch the movie and you seee the songs. You listen this CD and you see the movie. It is an all time classic. Buy it; it is really a Best Buy.

If you like the film, you will love this soundtrack. It is the music from the movie with all the same singers from the movie. A classic.

I was horrified when I was browsing the record store and saw how this supposedly complete disc was arranged. I have no doubt that it sounds fine, but under the circumstances, it is a waste of money and I refused to buy it.
The manufacturers have done nothing more on this "Sound of Music" re-release than add a second CD containing everything that had to be omitted from the LP and other CD versions of the film soundtrack album. RCA Victor, it seems, could not be bothered to start from the beginning and do the same beautiful job that Angel Records did with the enhanced editions of the "Oklaoma!", "Carousel", and "The King and I" soundtracks. The makers of those CD's saw to it that all the songs as well as the previously omitted material were all sequenced IN THE ORDER THAT IT APPEARED IN THE FILM.
But, apparently, doing this is too much work for RCA Victor. Instead of giving us the pleasure of being able to listen to all the songs and music in its proper order, so that we can get the feeling that we are listening to the soundtrack as it ought to be heard and experienced, we have to sit through the soundtrack album exactly as it was issued for its previous incarnation, and then put on ANOTHER CD so that we can listen to the background music and other versions of the tracks heard on the first CD in the set.
This is just sloppy and insensitive thinking. Why would RCA release a soundtrack album of a beloved film in an edition like this, when Rhino, with its M-G-M soundtrack series, and Angel, with its enhanced editions of three Rodgers and Hammerstein musical films, have done such a superlative job on their soundtracks?
The answer, of course, is pure laziness. They have the most successful and beloved film musical on their hands, so RCA Victor assumes that listeners will automatically buy any version of it, no matter how it is issued.
Shame on them.

My review on the standard one disc soundtrack of The Sound of Music is somewhere here. This is to comment on the 35th anniversary 2-disc set. The first disc is devouted to the original soundtrack album, with the second featuring extra music not on the original album. There are alternate, longer takes of several songs with extra music heard in the film but not the original album. Second, there are several songs not on the first album, such as the Captain and Liesl's first rendition of Edelweiss (my favorite version as compared to the reprise at the Festival), the ball music, the Laendler, the chase music, and the reprise of 16 Going on 17. Thirdly, Richard Rodgers' schpeel.
Alas, even this album is not really "complete." Missing is the complete wedding music along with the waltz at the close of the first act, the one based on the unused song, "How Can Love Survive," from the stage version. Missing as well is much of the Festival music and the children's own singing of "The Sound of Music" and "My Favorite Things." And I think the Richard Rodgers thing on the second disc is kind of unnecessary. The album is so wonderful, though, that you don't even think of completeness when you're enjoying this.
All in all, though, the 2 disc set (on the RCA Victor label) is well worth the purchase. Sound quality is exceptionally good on both discs, and neither disc is marred with extraneous sound effects such as extra dialogue, hand clapping and foot stomping that plague the "expanded" editions of Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I, My Fair Lady, and West Side Story.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC is one of the most celebrated musicals of all time, and I cannot imagine a better recording then this one, featuring the lovely Julie Andrews as Maria.
****
NOTE: This wonderous soundtrack album was given two 35th Anniversary Editions, a more basic edition with just the standard remastered soundtrack and a two-disc version with the standard edition CD and a bonus disc of alternate versions, some score, and an interview with Richard Rodgers. I purchased the single disc version, so don't look to this review for commentary on the second disc.
****
Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. Most of your favorite songs are on this disc, while the first version of "Edelweiss" heard (sung only by The Captian) is sadly absent (although purchasers of the two-disc version are treated to it on the bonus CD.) Still, this soundtrack will have you singing along in minutes, and the sound has been flawlessly restored for an even better listening experiece. The CD booklet contains very well-written and interesting liner notes which make for good reading for the serious Sound of Music fan as well as great pictures. Unfortunately, though, the lyrics are missing. Perhaps they are included in the booklet with the 2-disc version.
In conclusion, this is a great soundtrack album, but a flawed release for the absense of lyrics and Christopher Plummer's "Edelweiss." Perhaps it would be better for you to get the 2-disc edition, or perhaps this version suits your budget. Whichever version you choose, this music is classic and should not be missed.
