As part of an extensive half-century celebration for The Sound Of Music, we are proud to offer the original 16-track Grammy® Hall Of Fame-inducted RCA Victor soundtrack album on SACD. Led by Julie Andrews, whose work in the film earned her a Golden Globe award and an Academy Award nomination, the soundtrack rings out with heartwarming, iconic standards. From the title composition, "The Sound of Music," to "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," "Do-Re-Mi," "Edelweiss," "So Long, Farewell," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," and of course, "My Favorite Things," The Sound Of Music is a treasure for all time.
Nominated for ten Academy Awards and winner of five (including Best Picture and Best Director), The Sound Of Music stands as the most successful movie musical of all time. The soundtrack is a classic in its own right, having spent its first four years on Billboard's Top Albums chart including fourteen weeks at number one. It has subsequently sold over 20 million units to date.
This SACD includes the eight page booklet which accompanied the original vinyl release.
Standard CD layer will play back on any CD player and high-resolution layer will play back on SACD and compatible Blu-Ray/DVD players.
