It gives me no pleasure to give a 3-star rating to a 5-star motion picture soundtrack. But there's so much more they could be giving us.
Right now, you can purchase from Amazon the soundtrack to THE SOUND OF MUSIC. It's a CD which contains 16 tracks. However, if you're a bigger fan, you may purchase a 35th Anniversary Special Edition soundtrack to THE SOUND OF MUSIC which contains 31 tracks on two CDs. This larger soundtrack contains instrumental music which you will not find on the original soundtrack. In other words, you can purchase all of the music from the movie.
Why can't they do this with MARY POPPINS? That's what I miss most! It's the instrumental music without words (e.g. when George Banks was summoned to the bank at night and he walks by the St. Paul's Cathedral, the orchestra beautifully playing "Feed the Birds").
I am glad that all the songs (with words) are on here. That alone makes it better than most soundtracks out there. Another really great thing is the interviews at the end with the Sherman brothers who wrote the songs (as well as many other Disney songs). They explain the origin of the song "A Spoonful of Sugar," and they talk about several other songs including one which they loved very much but were unable to put in the film.
This year marks the film's 40th anniversary. Hopefully, we will soon have out a complete MARY POPPINS soundtrack.

With so many great songs associated with this movie, I had to buy this CD, even as an import. The songs are some of the very best that have been written for Disney. Spoonful of Sugar, Jolly Holiday, Supercalifragilisticexpialidociuos, Stay Awake, Chim Chim Cher-ee, and Let's Go Fly A Kite are staples of Disney that just get stuck in your head, especially because these songs are sop well known. I totally recommend this CD to everyone!

I was given "Mary Poppins: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack" when I was four, in 1970. I still hum most of the songs. You will too. Though it was released several decades before, it is a classic, entertaining and completely delightful CD.
These songs are silly, deliciously without any message. "A Spoonful Sugar" (helps the medicine go dow-own!) is as meaningless as it is catchy. Don't be embarrassed after a few listens, that you, an adult, are caught up in public whistling "Chim Chim Cher-ee."
The music seems a million miles away from the canned pop tunes Disney cranks out now. Don't get me wrong, I love "Aladdin" and "Beauty and the Beast" but there is a point at which today's Disney seems to be written to meet a market need than for the pure love of music.
Among my prouder moments in grade school was being able to spell 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,' and that I could say it without stumbling over each syllable.
I fully recommend "Mary Poppins: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack."

If you were a child of the 1960s, it would have been hard to avoid this movie and its many classic songs. Many of us are now passing our love for the film to our own children.
Dick Van Dyke screws up the cockney accent big-time -- comedians in the UK still make jokes about this. Glynis Johns can't really sing. Disney's attitude to women's emancipation seems, at best, ambivalent. There is plenty here that wouldn't make it into a 21st century movie -- apart perhaps from Renee Zellweger's wandering accent in "Bridget Jones's Diary". But it is these unpolished elements that make the soundtrack so lovable.
The Sherman Brothers rarely get a mention in histories of popular music. Goodness knows why -- it is possible that more people know their songs than those of Burt Bacharach or Paul McCartney. It's therefore excellent that this CD finishes with an interview with the two.
I normally review albums by the likes of Keith Jarrett, Deep Purple and Steely Dan for Amazon, and I had to think twice before admitting that 'Mary Poppins' is one of my favourite song collections!

I love all Disney films and I was considering buying the soundtracks of my favorite ones (Alice In Wonderland, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mary Poppins). By carefully analysing the tracks of each CD, I saw that most of them had the song and the score weaved together all in one package. But I don't think I would like it or listen to it, I mean don't get me wrong, I enjoy instrumental music but it tends to get boring. So then I saw that the Mary Poppins album had only songs on it meaning that my problem was solved, I only bought the Mary Poppins soundtrack. Julie Andrews' voice is beatiful and not only did she win the Oscar for Best Actress, her interpretation of the son Chim Chim Cher-ee won one for the Sherman Brothers and when she sings Feed The Birds, it sends chills up my spine. Might I add that if you still want the other songs or simply more, buy one of the song compilation CDs like Classic Disney Volumes I, II, III, IV and V or (what I did) get the two Princess Collection albums, they are worth it.
And whatever you do also buy the movie, one of Disney's best live-action films and watch for Julie Andrews in Disney's latest motion picture : The Princess Diaries (in theaters August 3rd) which also has a great sountrack (if you like pop) but unfortunately, Julie doesn't sing.
