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.

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 don't Know.. Maybe it's just because I'm not too fond of Musicals, but this soundtrack kinda sucks. I'd buy it, maybe to make fun of the lyrics (see GREASE) My favorite songs to make fun of:
1. Maria
2. Sixteen going on Seventeen
3. My Favorite Things
I guess this was kinda weird, but it's what I think. :)

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.

Over the seventeen years of my life, I have adored The Sound of Music, and have recently enjoyed listening to the film's soundtrack. I should say that there is certainly a level of aquaintance with the music that can't be achieved while watching the accompanying film, and so have found it wonderful to own the score. I've given some thought as to how it is that The Sound of Music is so beloved, with the devotion of its following surpassing that of any other musical, and have decided that both film and music succeed in walking a remarkable line between overbearing stiffness and the near ridiculous giddy-sweetness that has doubtless motivated many conscientious objectors to the musical genre. The characters of Captain Von Trapp and The Mother Abbess et al., not to mention the grand and graceful use of set and scenery, perfectly embody the more mature side of The Sound of Music. While the children's voices balance things out with an innocent charm lacking the slightest pretention, Maria acts the ambassador, eliciting the best from each of these two sources. All this, to create a musical that is singularly irresistable and almost universally admired.
