Multi-million sales, a spell of 16 weeks at the top of the US chart, and winning Gold Disc and Grammy Awards were fitting rewards for this memorable recording of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's much-loved musical which opened on Broadway in November 1959. The show's stars, Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel, were in fine vocal form, and led the excellent cast through the score's highlights, which included 'My Favourite Things', 'Do-Re-Mi', and 'Edelweiss' - the last song that Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote together before the latter's death in 1960.
