Sentimental? Yes, but in the best way. Uplifting? Absolutely. I've been searching for a CD of this movie for years, and now to have the bounty of 3 CDs - the first being the actual film score (including the underscore, instrumental music used in specific scenes that has not been available before but is gorgeous), the second being mainly alternate versions of the music used in the movie, along with interview segments with the principal cast members, and the final CD containing the original tracks from the original sound track album along with more interviews and more alternate takes.
In addition, there is a 48 page booklet detailing each CD and track, as well as the history of the movie - and I had never known that originally Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews were to be the principals, with Andre Previn doing the score! Fascinating info - very enjoyable.
I've tried to purchase this set from local booksellers who tell me that this was a limited edition and is now out of print again. Wherever you find it, buy it. I cannot imagine anyone regretting it.
Now for some wishful thinking: The simplicity and beauty of the music would only be enhanced by a fully restored and remastered DVD version of the film. It's most unfortunate that both the producer Arthur P. Jacobs and the director Herb Ross are no longer available to give us their vision.Read more ›

This remake in musical form is an under sung tribute to Peter O'Toole and Petula Clark was never appreciated for her castimng at the time. It does stand the test of time!Published on September 5, 2013 by John Reese Williams
This is the best deal I have got in a long time! Many of the additional material on this cd set SHOULD have been on the skimpy DVD release! It is so worth the 35.00!Published on March 26, 2009 by Dr.FORREST LEONE

I was so very happy to get this CD, the music is just wonderful. I was never really a fan of Patula Clark until I watched the movie & then purchased the CD. Read morePublished on January 14, 2008 by Merrilee D. Scofield
I fell in love with this score the moment I listened to the M-G-M recording back in 1969 (I was 19 years old at the time). Over the decades I prayed for a CD remastering. Read morePublished on March 25, 2007 by Stewart Gooderman
