To understand the magnitude of the Mary Poppins phenomenon, consider that in 1965, the year of the film's debut, the soundtrack stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard charts for 14 consecutive weeks -- longer than the runs enjoyed by the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones, and the Sound of Music soundtrack during the same year. The Oscar-winning duo of Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke led the cast in this family musical about a nanny with supernatural powers -- and a classic was born. Marking the occasion of the movie's 40th anniversary is this two-disc special edition soundtrack, released alongside a newly remastered DVD. Disney composers Richard and Robert Sherman scored big with Poppins, one of the best movie musicals ever -- just try to resist the charm of "Chim-Chimeree" and "Let's Go Fly a Kite." And the lullaby "Stay Awake" is a brilliant showcase for Andrews, who sounds purely angelic. Plus, you can sing along to "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "A Spoonful of Sugar" with ease, as all the lyrics are provided in a 40-page booklet. The set also adds loads of special features, such as 13 previously unreleased recordings, including both instrumental and vocal tracks ("The Carousel Horses" and the Penguin Dance") and four songs that include additional material ("Pavement Artist" and "Jolly Holiday"). The second disc holds more surprises -- 40 minutes of recorded story meetings with Mary Poppins author P. L. Travers and interviews with Andrews, Van Dyke, and the Sherman brothers. As if that weren't enough, the set also includes a link to an exclusive peek at the new Mary Poppins Broadway musical. Chock-full of bonus features, this is a must-have disc for every family-friendly music library.
