"Rodgers and Hammerstein had touched on this kind of material before -- some say to better effect -- in "The King and I," etc., but the original cast of "The Sound of Music" boasts Mary Martin singing her heart out, and, most especially, Patricia Neway as the Mother Abbess giving the most propulsive, muscular, go-out-there-and-win-one-for-the-Gipper performance of "Climb Ev'vy Mountain" you're ever likely to hear. This cut alone makes this album a must-have."
