By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Original play recordings will always win out for the people that saw it. However I grew up with this movie and there is no other version for me. I have visions of the people and the story as the different song comes up. It was the lyrics to "Some Enchanted Evening" that actually convinced me to get married. And even today I find my self singing "Younger Than Springtime" to my wife. However I do not look it. I even did a review of the movie the day that Ray Walston ...Luther Billis died. [South Pacific (1958) ASIN: 6305283362]. I will mot go through all the songs on this album. Just if you pick one album this is it. And if you like other versions then you should still add this to the collection for contrast.
One day you will want to make this your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Younger than Springtime 11 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Although generally not a great lover of musical films, South Pacific is probably my favourite, mostly because of the hauntingly memorable music and possibly because it was the first "big musical" film I saw at the cinema - when the best seats were 2/6d (12-13 pence)- crippling to a young teenager! At the risk of sounding repetitive, the memories come flooding back when listening to the soundtrack, which is perfectly reproduced on this cd, as each scene is vividly brought to mind. Even if you haven't seen the film many, if not all, of the songs have become well established favourites, but I find the original soundtrack hard to beat.
Highly recommended for easy listening or a sing-along in the car - (or bath)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Memories 16 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It brought back happy memories of my childhood and to me was always the best version of the musical. It now makes me want to get the original film version which I have not seen for forty years or more. I cannot recommend this CD-rom more.

5.0 out of 5 stars South Pacific 19 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My mum used to have an LP of South Pacific when I was little, and I grew up knowing the songs, so this CD is a real trip down memory lane. The songs are great with excellent tunes, and good lyrics, and they are very easy to sing along to. Great for a bit of escapism!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic 26 Sep 2011
By Karen
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say except 'Magic'. Took me back to when my mother took me to see the film as a child and we had an LP of the soundtrack which was played all the time. Wonderful songs to sing along to in the car, so glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars South Pacific Musical-film version 12 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for the same reason as I bought Oklahoma. Childhood memories of hearing it played on LP or Dad singing songs from it to us. I did see the film too when I was about 5 or 6, but really it's the audible memories rather than the visual images that I treasure.

An album full of wonderfully tuneful and clever songs - Rogers and Hammerstein at their glorious best. If you want to wallow in, or sing along to magnificent melodies, then listen to South Pacific: if you want to listen to brilliant and inventive lyrics which with true lightness of touch deal with a gamut of themes ranging from boy-girl love to happy-go-lucky to racism and back again, then listen to South Pacific.

Ignore all that - just listen to South Pacific!

As a sound track of the original film the music is fantastic, just as expected. Would have liked it to be longer but I presume that is why some editions are more costly. Read more

The Pacific wasn't terrific! I had fond memories of the film, but the soundtrack is pretty awful. Well, I was a kid when I saw it and I had not heard any Schubert then, so how was... Read more
