The Sound Of Music Soundtrack List

Updated on March 1, 2013

Which Sound of Music Soundtrack CD to Buy?

There are 5 different editions of The Sound Of Music Soundrack including a 45th anniversary (2010) edition, 40th anniversary (2005), 25th anniversary (2000), a 30th anniversary limited edition (1995) and the first original re-issue of the original Sound of Music Soundtrack on CD (1990).

If you're looking to buy yourself or Christmas gift, a CD or MP3 Download of songs from The Sound of Music Soundtrack, which do you choose? If sound quality is important, then buy the latest digitally remastered 45th anniversary edition.

For the most complete set of songs, many Sound of Music Soundtrack afficianados prefer the 40th anniversary edition which presents all the song cues from the film. If you're doing an MP3 Download of The Sound of Music Soundtrack, my recommendation would be to download the latest version which is also the least expensive and supplement with individual song downloads of missing songs or orchestral tracks to build the definitive digital soundtrack.

      Musicals were never my favorite genre, but I've always made an exception with The Sound of Music (and of course, Mary Poppins.) :)

      I love the Sound of Music, it's one of my absolute favorite movies...and after reading this great lens, I'm wondering why I don't have the soundtrack! Definitely going to have to add it to my wish list. :-)

      There is a sing-a-long showing of the Sound of Music in Seattle at Christmas time every year, too. What fun!
