I’ve never seen The Sound of Music. I have no idea what it’s about. Okay, maybe a foggy idea – a nun? orphans? goats? Julie Andrews’ bad haircut?
I do know two songs that I think are from the musical – The Lonely Goatherd thanks to Gwen Stefani’s song Wind It Up and Do-Re-Me thanks to my 4th grade music teacher, Mrs. Column.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Broadway musical, so it’s about time I got my act together – and what better way to do so than by having The Sound of Music: 50th Anniversary Edition as my first listen.
A fully restored recording of the original Broadway cast, this special anniversary edition makes it clear why The Sound of Music became one of the longest running musicals ever and why contemporary artists like Gwen Stefani find inspiration from the music and lyrics of Rogers & Hammerstein.
Along with the limited edition soundtrack, The Sound of Music: A Classic Collectible Pop-Up is the most whimsical and charming pop-up book I’ve seen. It captures the spirit of the musical to a tee. The engineering behind the book is so intricate and unforgettable that you’ll want to add it to your library.
Whether you’re old or young, familiar with the movie or musical, the anniversary sound track and pop-up book are the perfect way to continue to enjoy this hit musical – or in my case – as an introduction to this classic.
I’m now off to add The Sound of Music to my Netflix queue!
