The Sound of Music (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition "Golden Sun" Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday July 24 and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
More than half a century after The Sound of Music first made its arrival in cinemas - and longer still since its 1959 debut on a Broadway stage - the timeless wartime musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer remains one of the most popular musicals of all time. Based on the real-life story of the Trapp Family Singers – and the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany – the film adaptation won five Oscars and retains an almost cult-like following even today.
The film’s iconic score, written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, joins our exclusive centenary line-up this month with a new limited edition reprsee on “golden sun yellow” vinyl, with just 1000 copies up for grabs.
