I bought this as kept missing the show when it was shown on TV over Christmas. The singing that Carrie provides is better than I thought it would be and there are some good and fun songs in this cd. Although was never a fan of the actual Julie Andrews film this live cd is pretty good although after hearing it the first time I was bored by it. I have to say I do like it now and its worth the money.
Carrie's recent new album 'storyteller' which I rushed to buy from HMV is great too and while doing the Sound of Music was probably worth a try she should stick to making country music as it suits her a lot better.
The other singers on the cd are also very good and I hope to eventually see the whole live show as while Carrie might not be the best actress she certainly can belt out some good stuff!

The golden anniversary of the film of The Sound of Music has given me the right occasion to review this NBC TV cast recording.

Two years ago NBC's live telecast of the Broadway musical with Carrie Underwood as Maria gave viewers who only know the film the chance to see a TV production of the musical with its original stage script. I give credit to American TV networks for giving a TV-viewing audience access to live musical theatre again with these productions. NBC has also followed up this production with live Christmas-period telecasts of Peter Pan and The Wiz. Other American TV networks are planning to get in on the act (as witness the upcoming Fox version of Grease).

Be that as it may, I've noted that this recording does not do justice to the magnificent score. I know that these live TV musicals have an energy that comes from the spirit of amateurs just putting on a show. However, be that as it may, this recording does not do justice to this magnificent R&H score. I give credit to the efforts of this cast and the music team, but I find that it lacks that last bit of sparkle and freshness. It does not help that the cast recorded this cast recording BEFORE the broadcast, not after. The front-rank principals tend to be leaden and wooden in their characterisations, especially when compared to the secondary characters (Mother Abbess, Max and Elsa).

The draw of this production is, of course, Carrie Underwood as Maria. I worried that her casting might make the hills alive with the sound of disaster. However, the disaster was not as bad as I anticipated. Despite her acting problems and leaden characterisation of the part, I still give credit to her for essaying the role of Maria.

Although I still love the film version of this classic musical with the legendary Julie Andrews in the role of Maria, I equally love the original cast Recording with again the legendary Mary Martin who created the role of Maria on Broadway in 1959. This recording I feel recaptures the stage play for a television audience. What for me this recording does is to realize even more what a mistake it was by Robert Wise the film version's director to cut the songs that Max Elsa and Max Elsa and The Captain sing in the stage version: 'How can Love Survive' and 'No Way To Stop It! fine songs which show Hammerstein in a rare sardonic mood and give, again for me, more meaning to the story. Also I prefer 'My Favorite Things' sung by Maria and The Mother Abbess,
rather than as in the film version to the children. In the stage version Maria sings to the children 'The Lonely Goatherd' here during the Thunderstorm which for me gives far more meaning to the song and includes Hammerstein's very clever lyrics. The film uses the marionettes puppet show for this song which Rodgers & Hammerstein would not I feel had written that type of song for that situation. Again that is how I feel.

The cutting of the song 'An Ordinary Couple' and the substitution of 'Something Good' that Richard Rodgers wrote for the film version is justifiable however as Rodgers & Hammerstein themselves were never happy with that song, and wanted to write another, even their greatest fan and star Mary Martin dis-liked that song, it is reported as her saying I liked the words to 'An Ordinary Couple' but I never did like the music! Unfortunately Hammerstein's terminal illness prevented them from writing a new song. He died 9 months after the stage play opened on Broadway.

I have a confession to make. As much as I love the musical The Sound of Music, I only have one soundtrack from it – the original Broadway cast. At some point, I really do intend to buy the Julie Andrews movie version, but there are a couple songs that the movie cut I loved. However, that sound track I have has some issues, and I’ve wanted to replace it for years. Enter the Cast Recording from the recent The Sound of Music - Live, and I’ve found exactly what I’m looking for.

All of your favorite sounds from the musical are here. We’re talking “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Every Mountain,” Edelweiss,” and “The Sound of Music,” among others. However, if you are only familiar with the movie, some things are going to be different here. The movie changed the order around, but this one sticks to the order from the original Broadway play. When I was in the play in college, I must admit the new order took a little getting used to, but once you do, you won’t mind at all.

The only change this disc makes as far as songs go from the original is the song that Captain Von Trapp and Maria sing after they fall in love. Here, we get the song from the movie, “Something Good.” Honestly, I don’t care for either of the love songs, so I’m ambivalent about this.

The soundtrack uses a full orchestra, as it should. The instruments sound amazing, and it’s easy to get swept up in the beauty of the music.

And the singing? It’s wonderful. Carrie Underwood’s acting as Maria was criticized in the movie (and rightly so), but if you watched the movie carefully, she came alive whenever she was singing. That means there are no issues whatsoever with the songs she’s in.
