Pulling together the film soundtrack along with bonus tracks but this time with a difference. Here you get bonus tracks from the original Broadway show featuring Doretta Morrow, Dorothy Sarnoff and Gertrude Lawrence plus the crooners sing "The King & I" in the shape of young man Frank Sinatra and the older Bing Crosby. The combination works and gives both the original concept and the commercial arrangements for Columbia and Decca. The running time of just less than 68 minutes is generous and overall the sound quality is good and clear throughout. Attractively packaged this will stand out in the racks and with the low price tag is sure to do well.

Bonus track credits: Doretta Morrow, 1951 The King and I Broadway production. Doretta created the role of Tuptim and introduced the songs "I Have Dreamed" and "We Kiss in a Shadow" both duets with Larry Douglas

As I have written before I have been buying these recording for my mum who has dementia. She used to love musicals and can remember and sing along to the tunes, which is lovely to hear. Recordings are good (volume can go up and down a bit) but all in all a good purchase.

You can't beat the classic film version. I have a copy of the stage production with Gertrude Lawrence but it's not nearly as good as this one - even though Deborah is miming! All of the music from the film production is here, and although I'm no expert, it sounds wonderful to me.

Beautiful Songs written by the kings of the musical Rodgers & Hammerstein.
'Something Wonderful' is my favourite on this recording - film recordings always the best !

I don't remember the soundtrack of this film being so harsh. I'm sure this could have been corrected in the transferring process.

A classic 'love story' that can never be fulfilled. Enjoyed listening to the story unfold in music. I really enjoy listening.
