Upon release in 1965, this Ray Conniff reissue was originally called Music from Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady & Other Great Movie Themes. While the title was shortened to Great Songs from the Movies, the track listing remains the same. The easy listening arranger and conductor elegantly reworks such classic themes as "My Favorite Things," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Chim Chim Cheree" and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face." Although not essential, this is a respectable budget priced reissue that traditional pop fans should be aware of.
