Rodgers and Hammerstein have written classic music that everyone who hears it loves. People who have never, (surprisingly) seen, ''The Sound of Music,'' know lyrics that it seems were implanted into their memory before they were even born. Who doesn't know, ''I am sixteen going on seventeen...,'' and, ''The hills are alive with the sound of music...''? If this CD is not part of your collection, make it one at once. Julie Andrews will send chills down your spine and you will never want to hear anyone but her sing those beautiful lyrics again. I guarantee it!

I'm sure you know a lot about this album, and this is a special version because of Julie Andrews. This release is a vast improvement over the previous one, cleaning up the sound and re-arranging the tracks in a chronological order. However, the previously unreleased material (such as the additional Edelweiss duet that Captain von Trapp sang with Liesl after the Lonely Goatherd puppet show) needs to be made available to the public and added to this album. This is a far cry from a definitive presentation of the soundtrack.

I have been a fan of The Sound of Music since its release in 1965. I was in grade school they taught us many of the songs on this CD. Every song will take you back to the movie or just carry you away with it's melody and lyrics. Add this to your collection. You will not be sorry, and don't be surprised if you begin to sing the songs while you're driving or working. It will make you happy and we all need that! Do-Ra-Me!

Despite ALL MUSIC GUIDE's rather disparaging assessment of the "ornate" orchestrations in the 1965 film version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's final Broadway collaboration THE SOUND OF MUSIC, the soundtrack album is simply stunning in my opinion. Irwin Kostal conducts the score with a full bodied lilt that matches the gorgeous widescreen TODD AO color cinematography. I do agree that Richard Rodger's new songs for the film ("I Have Confidence", "Something Good") are inferior to the two Rodgers and Hammerstein stage songs they replaced. The Original Broadway Cast Album is indeed a classic but the movie soundtrack is just as memorable a listening experience.

I'm sure you know a lot about this album and that it is a bestseller because of Julie Andrews and the well-scored rendition of the R&H score. However, this release does not include any previously unreleased music as bonus material.
