A historically important recording
When I first heard this version of TSOM ten years after I got to know the film soundtrack with Dame Julie, I felt muted in my response. Although Mary Martin is finding her dream in playing the role of Maria that she asked R&H to write for her, I felt this recording lacked that certain Sound of Music spirit and sounded a little staid. Mary Martin sounds at her best in her autumnal rendition of the title song, but her duets with the children in the livelier songs come off as contrived. Theodore Bikel partners her as a good Captain and utilises his guitar-playing skills in Edelweiss. Patricia Neway is probably the standout performance on this recording, giving full throttle to her rendition of Climb Every Mountain. This recording allows us to hear how the musical originally sounded and was conceived, but it only serves to make the revised versions look good. It's true that you get the chance to hear the deleted songs How Can Love Survive and No Way to Stop It, which make the Captain's conflicts more real. In this light I can only recommend this CD for its historical curiosity, but I know I should give Mary Martin her due credit for having suggested Sound of Music to R&H, just as we need to give Gertrude Lawrence her credit for suggesting King and I. I would rather recommend the film soundtrack with Dame Julie and the 1998 Broadway version with Rebecca Luker.
