Sealed 1969 Gatefold Original. Cut Out Hole. “With Three Academy Award Nominations, One Each For Conductor John Williams, Composer Leslie Bricusse, And Vocalist/Star Peter O'Toole, The Soundtrack To The 1969 Film Does More To Solidify Petula Clark's Role As A Woman Of Great Talent Than The Attempts By Her Record Label At The Time, Warner Brothers, To Break Her Out Of The Pop Realm Where She Was So Very Welcome. The Original Vinyl Soundtrack Album Became A Cutout For Awhile, Proving Some Labels Do Not Know The True Value Of What They Release. A Glorious, Eight-Page Gatefold Contains Information On All Of The Principals In This Remake Of The 1939 MGM Film. Of The 15 Tracks, Petula Clark Gets Seven, Peter O'Toole Is Given Four, And Neither Of Them Get To Duet With Each Other. Both Get To Work With The Chorus Of Boys In The Film, And The Production Is The Class Act One Would Expect Given The Involvement Of Such High-Ticket Talent. This Is Far Removed From Petula Clark's The Grass Is Always Greener Album, Where She Works With Orchestration In A Pop Format. Here She Is As Sophisticated As Julie Andrews In The Sound Of Music, The Precious Instrument That Is Her Voice Providing More Evidence Of What An Exquisite And Underrated Talent Clark Is. Her Performance On "You And I" Is Stunning; Juxtaposed Against O'Toole's Reading One Can See The Balance And The Necessity Of Having A Female Lead With The Ability To Handle The Complex Notes. The Symphonic Sounds Are Simply Gorgeous, And The Listener Really Needs The Large Cardboard Album Cover With Photos To Fully Appreciate The Soundtrack Experience.” – Joe Viglione, All Music Guide
