Was it announced if the physical deluxe edition will be available through Amazon or should we order direct?

It is available through Amazon.com. You might receive it sooner by ordering direct.

Ordering direct hasn't been possible for the last few days, unfortunately. It's either been marked as SOLD OUT, or when it's listed as in stock, the website won't let you complete a purchase.

There's a warning on the website that they're moving locations, hopefully they get the website fixed once they settle in their new home.

I ordered it on Amazon. It appeared to be cheaper than ordering direct.

The part that plays the recitative melody is the original version and was on the album. What you hear in the film was an insert added post-preview in January 1965. The playback version is actually the "alternate" that has been released yesterday as an "instant gratification" tease.

That's what I thought. Gettin' closer (If one person should put the puzzle piece, that is the "Composer's Original Score").

It seems like this is what's known about the R&H films that 20th controlled until recently.

Please correct me if I have anything wrong. smile

1945 State Fair - controlled permanently by 20th
Oklahoma - controlled by R&H, now distributed by Samuel Goldwyn on home video
Carousel - controlled permanently by 20th
The King and I - subject to relicense by 20th, unclear if that has happened
South Pacific - controlled by R&H, now distributed by Samuel Goldwyn on home video
1962 State Fair - controlled permanently by 20th
The Sound of Music - subject to relicense by 20th, just relicensed

I am definitely getting this! I've just listened to the alternate version of "Something Good" with Christopher Plummer's original vocals and I have to say at least for me he did a wonderful job! I don't understand why he needed to be dubbed.

The film is now up again on Disney+ for those who don't already own it and want to stream it.

There's also 1962 remake of State Fair, which wasn't included in the 20th R&H boxset with the others. Does 20th control that permanently too, since it's a remake of a film they already control permanently?


Fox/Disney controls the 1962 remake of STATE FAIR

Thanks! I assumed that was the case, but because it's not available on streaming and the Blu-Ray is OOP, there wasn't an easy way to tell online.

I just checked the copyrights for the soundtracks of CAROUSEL, SOUTH PACIFIC, THE KING AND I, and FLOWER DRUM SONG on iTunes. Here's what I discovered:

CAROUSEL and THE KING and I are copyrighted to Angel Records (but this label was dissolved in 2006 into Universal Music Group).

SOUTH PACIFIC is copyrighted to BMG Entertainment (Bertelsmann Music Group, RCA Victor's successor which is now owned by Sony).

FLOWER DRUM SONG is copyrighted to Rodgers & Hammerstein Holdings, LLC, A Concord Company. It seems Universal Music Group's (the soundtrack was originally released by Decca and then re-released by MCA) license for this title expired and is now controlled by R&H/Concord.

And in much simpler terms:

CAROUSEL/KING and I = Universal Music Group
SOUTH PACIFIC = Sony
FLOWER DRUM SONG = R&H/Concord

Mike posted a video earlier today displaying the finished physical product, which looks beautifully put together. Can’t wait to get my copy and almost wish Disney might do something similar for Mary Poppins in the future.

Anyone ordering this in the UK.....

I am talking about the super deluxe edition here, but any other purchase will work just fine.

I got 20% off at HMV . Quite a saving..plus free postage.

You need to register, then send a referral to a "friends" email address. (I sent this to my work email ). You may have multiple email addresses you could use.

The discount code is then sent to the friends (or your other email) email.address.

I then went and checked out and added the discount code, which gave me £25 off ! And free postage.


Just in case anyone else in the UK wants this and wants £25 off !

It sure would be a nice if you were able to purchase the nice liner notes book separately. I always enjoy Mike's liner notes, and with the other contributors it would be a great keepsake for those who don't need, want or can't afford the super duper set……. Just a thought!

CELLULOID DREAMS THE MOVIE SHOW -- 12/1/23

THIS WEEK'S SHOW: Those hills are back, baby!

58 years (!) and many iterations later, historian/preservationist Mike Matessino has assembled a soundtrack set fans could only dream of. THE SOUND OF MUSIC: SUPER DELUXE EDITION is the definitive audio collection comprising the complete film score plus a wealth of previously-unreleased material including instrumentals for every song, demos and rare outtakes from the cast. We gave you a preview in October, and now Mike is here for the entire hour to chat about what's included on the 4 discs and how it all came together. Plus, we'll play a handful of tracks in this end-to-end CELLULOID DREAMS exclusive!

"Screen Scene" movie reviews return next week (but you can find THIS week's segment on our FB page).

Heads up - I just received my 5-disc Super Deluxe Sound of Music soundtrack and Disc Four, though it is labeled as such, is actually a duplicate of Disc 2 (Film Score Presentation Act 2). Check your pressing to see if this is the case with yours - I just contacted Craft Recordings to let them know so they can issue a replacement disc.
