I was impressed with the sound and soundtrack order of the previous 30th Anniversary edition, which so improved the original CD issue. This new double 35th Anniversary edition puts most of the icing on the cake. It does make a lot of corrections, but does not completely fill a few minor voids. There are millions of people who have seen this movie soooooo many times on the screen, TV, wore out a couple of vinyl copies, etc. We know this soundtrack backwards, forwards, in our sleep, and even the macho-est of men I've heard humming My Favorite Things. This CD adds the missing original issues that were heard with the on-screen film, and only previously available via Laser Disc, or on Fox Cassette if you bought that version of the re-release on video. I have this tape, and have compared Disc 2 to it. Disc 1 is still the soundtrack that was issued for the 30th. Disc 2 uses most of the tracks from the tape and laser version. Per my tape, this new disc has omitted the DO-RE-MI REPRISE during the Folk Festival (what I affectionately call the "TEA WITH JAM & BREAD MIX"), plus some instrumental music. It is nice to have what they added. However, what is also missing is the Grand Finale to Act 1 of the film and just prior when the Baroness is looking for the Captain after she has left Maria in her room. When she is searching for the Captain before going into the Grand Ballroom and meets up with Max, the background music is playing a waltzy version of the omitted HOW CAN LOVE SURVIVE, that was in the stage show. After her conversation, she finds the Captain and the Edelweiss waltz plays while Maria sneaks away to that grand orchestral finish of Act 1.Read more ›

I am very happy that this 40th Anniversary edition of THE SOUND OF MUSIC Soundtrack is a vast improvement over any of the previous RCA CD issues. For the first time, it presents ALL the song cues in the order of the film, and the RCA tapes have never sounded better. Dame Julie's sterling portrayal of Maria is reason enough to plump for this CD, and her crystalline voice has never sounded better. She is ably backed by the critic-proof cast including Bill Lee's down-to-earth Captain, Margery McKay's Mother Abbess, and the glorious septet of children. This CD presents the tracks from the original RCA album, in more dynamic sound than on previous CDs, in sound that positively shines. These tracks intermingle with the Captain's first version of Edelweiss with Liesl, the Laendler and the Sixteen Going on Seventeen reprise. They are all lovingly incorporated into the soundtrack and the presentation is perhaps enough to rival the superb sounding Fox gold CD. This CD also includes the reprises of My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi and So Long, Farewell, and the Entr'acte and End Titles. They all make their CD debut, except that the tinny sound quality sounds like the producers recorded it off a videocassette or a DVD of the movie, because you can hear some dialogue and sound effects and a funny sound quality. All-told, although I do wish that the CD producers used the 20th-Century Fox tracks exclusively for this release and utilised longer versions of the Preludium and the reprise of Edelweiss, this CD offers wonderful sound quality despite some tape hiss in the RCA tracks. The booklet contains some coloured stills from the film, yet I lament that it lacks not just the lyrics but a detailed analysis of the musical, the filming and a soundtrack annotation. Overall, a wonderful presentation of a justly-celebrated soundtrack and a true sign that this soundtrack is getting the proper treatment it deserves. What more needs to be said than BUY IT NOW.

Finally! Every song cue is here, including the reprises of "My Favorite Things" (sung by the children and Maria upon her return to the von Trapp villa) and "So Long, Farewell" (sung by Maria, the Captain, and the children as they make their exits from the music festival). These two tracks weren't even available on such otherwise complete sets as the 35th anniversary two-disc set and the 24-karat gold disc that came only with the 30th anniversary laserdisc set (those sets did have instrumental background music that's not available on this disc). It may seem silly to purchase yet another copy of this (exquisite) recording, but for completists like myself, it's delightful to have all of the songs on a disc at last.

This 45th anniversary release is FANTASTIC. True, it isn't a complete soundtrack of the movie, but if it were what would we have to look forward to for the 50th Anniversary? To date, the most complete version of the soundtrack is the 35h anniversary 2-disc set, which is not as good of a quality as this 45th anniversary. This most recent version has been completely digitally remastered by using the original audio tracks. The original audio tracks had been damaged some time ago and could not be used for digital remasters. A copy was used. We have finally developed the technology to use the original, damaged tracks. The developers of this 45th anniversary edition were able to isolate the music and the voices and remaster them independently, which allowed them to bring out the voices of the children, the sounds of the wind and birds in the opening scene, and the different instruments that have previously been hidden in the recordings. If you listen to this remastered version alongside the 35th anniversary edition, there is a marked difference in the quality.

I don't care what anyone says, this disc is absolutely worth it! Be sure to check out the BluRay version of the 45th Anniversary edition of the movie. It is simply amazing how much work was put in to restore this classic, and the BluRay is a testament to that. It's amazing.
