Digitally remastered and expanded 50th Anniversary edition featuring previously unreleased score cues and all vocal performances for the first time in one release. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards and winner of five, including Best Picture and Best Director, the iconic film adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's The Sound Of Music stands as the most successful movie musical of all time, enjoying a seven-year run as the highest-grossing film of all time from 1966 to 1972 and remaining a consistent favorite through worldwide television broadcasts and home video releases. The film's Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum soundtrack, featuring the beautiful vocals of Julie Andrews, has sold more than 10 million units worldwide. The unforgettable songs, including "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," "Sixteen Going On Seventeen," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" and more, have become unquestionable staples of popular music, having been covered, referenced and even sampled many times over the past half century.
The Grammy-nominated multi-platinum soundtrack to the most successful movie musical ever, reissued for its 50th anniversary with previously unreleased score cues and all vocal performances for the first time ever in one release!
