Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Winner of five Oscars (including two for Richard and Robert Sherman's memorable slate of songs), Disney's 1964 adaptation of British author P.L. Travers' beloved children's tales melded live action, animation and music more successfully than any film before or since. Containing the most complete version of the Sherman Brothers' score and a wealth of previously unavailable behind-the-scenes treasures, this double-disc, 40th anniversary soundtrack edition becomes the ultimate musical tribute to the beloved family masterpiece. The Sherman's memorable songs are showcased here in a more comprehensive musical context than ever before; indeed, a number of the expanded or previously unreleased pieces of the Irwin Kostal-arranged underscore now included were truncated in editing the film itself. The generous bonus disc contains the set's greatest historical treasure: a 40+ minute pre-production story meeting between the Shermans, gag writer Don DaGradi and author Travers herself. Also included is a lengthy 1964 audio documentary featuring the Shermans and stars Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, an audio montage of the songwriting team reminiscing and playing their original demos for the project and an illustrated 40-page companion booklet containing a history of the project as well as complete song lyrics. -- Jerry McCulley

Product Description

Never was the magic of Disney more truly magical than in Mary Poppins , whose soundtrack was one of the most celebrated and successful of all time. Well, get ready for more magic: here, on 2 CDs, are over four hours of music, interviews and commentary by its stars and creators, including 14 unreleased tracks and a 30-page booklet. A Spoonful of Sugar; Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious; Chim Chim Cher-ee; Let's Go Fly a Kite ...it's practically perfect in every way!

Format:Audio CD
With the release of the 40th Anniversary two-disc edition of Mary Poppins onto DVD(see my review)there is nothing that could compliment it better than this two disc special edition of the Mary Poppins soundtrack onto CD.

This soundtrack now mirrors the movie as no other release before has done.The music now plays and appears in the order that it does in the movie.Also new background and bridging music has been added to either expand existing cuts or released on its' own.It is an absolute joy to hear and is the closest thing to actually watching the movie itself.

And if this newly remastered soundtrack wasn't enough Disney has added a bonus disc.The first cut consists of approximately 41 minutes of the original six hour meeting of the author of the Mary Poppins books,Mrs. P. Travers, going through a rough version of the story with Disney staff.

The second is a 17 minute interview with the two main stars Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews,the Sherman brothers(responsible for most of the music) and the musical director Irwin Kostal.

The third and last track is the Sherman brothers reminiscing for about 16 minutes on their work on the picture.

Like the DVD extras these CD extras are very revealing,educational and generally enhance ones' viewing of and experience with the movie.

There is only one Mary Poppins soundtrack you MUST own and it is THIS one.Get yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all-time best buy January 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you have never seen the movie, buy this CD and you will hear the happiness of people in the movie. If you have seen the movie, listen this CD in closing your eyes and you will see the movie in your head. It is really an excellent CD with a quality recording. Read the other critics written by other people. This CD is a fabulous one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary is 'Top of the Pops' August 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
My whole family loves this cd. In fact, we recently took a road trip and took it along and my 4 year-old daughter loves to sing to just about every song. She also likes to hear some songs more than once. The soundtrack cd can be listened to all the way through. One of the all time great albums. The second cd is great for people who like to have some behind the scenes. This cd is an A+ for my daughters aged 4 and 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Jolly Holiday! November 19, 2004
By Corey
Format:Audio CD
Mary Poppins: 2 Disc CD Soundtrack is very Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Since getting it in the mail today I have been listening to it any spare second I find. You are never to old to listen to this wonderfully done music. It is a Broadway style musical movie with wonderful singers Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The extra music that was not included in previous released CDs make this a must! I know I will enjoy this CD for years to come and recommand it strongly for anyone else who enjoys Mary Poppins, Disney, or Broadway style music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically Perfect... June 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A really wonderful re-issue of this classic score, made even richer by the inclusion of much of the orchestral score. My only quibble, rather small, is that the expanded overture heard on the original lp has not been included. That overture goes on a little longer than the film version and is quite beautiful. Has this version been on any cd issue of the soundtrack? As I said, small point, and this cd belongs in every soundtrack collection - it's just great - and far better than the current stage version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A TIMELESS CLASSIC October 10, 2009
By Barbara
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Julie Andrews IS Mary Poppins and this CD captures the very essence of the movie. The DVD is a classic and so is this CD! When I hear "A Spoonful of Sugar" it can only be sung by the one and only Julie! The songs have spanned generations and this is a terrific CD for the new generation of Mary Poppins aficionados!

Sidenote... I made a back-up CD editing the songs my granddaughter likes the most so she can hear spoonful of sugahhhh and supercalifragilisticexpialadocious over and over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically Perfect in Every Way November 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Finally, the Mary Poppins soundtrack I have dreamed of for the last 40 years. Yes, there are bits of music missing that I would have liked them to have included, by who can quibble when one finally has the complete Jolly Holiday sequence? And so much else. Thank you, Disney, all is forgiven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have it all! September 27, 2009
By LD400RN
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is what one could call "The Complete Poppins" It has every single bit of music (underscoring and dance included) used in the final film and it sounds as fresh and lively as it did when I was a child. The second disc features interviews with P.L.Travers, who wrote the original Poppins stories, and the Sherman Brothers, who wrote the film. It is a fascinating look at a unique collaboration. All in all it is one of the best soundtrack re-releases I own. There's no hesitation for you in buying it (unless you're diabetic, then a spoonfull of sugar would not be a good thing - I kid, I kid - ok, ok send the veteran RN death threats).

The Sherman Brothers at their very best. An excellent recording. The only downside is listening to Dick van Dyke's horrid attempt at a Cockney accent.
