That is quite astonishing. She sounds like a violin in places, her voice is so high.

When I was a kid, I used to listen to 'The Sound of Music' on LP, I even knew where to skip words and partial words because of a scratch on the record.
Dad said she had bells in her voice. I am just so in awe of her and hearing this early recording just confirms all my admiration for her.

A truly wonderful, talented, woman.

It's kind of hard case, but when I was little, I knew I was adopted, it wasn't a big issue but I did wonder who my birthmother was and being in this situation, when you're young, you start to wonder further afield... maybe my birthmother was Julie Andrews..... Mum was always cutting my hair like hers. It was a compromise between her wanting me to have long hair and me wanting it short.

A few years later, I heard something about John Lennons father being in NZ.... maybe, I thought, he was my birthfather?

I guess it's one of those things that if your not adopted, you just don't have that vision of possiblity, however far fetched it might be.
Someone asked me once, what is was like being adopted..... I couldn't answer, I had no idea what it was like NOT being adopted.....

I found out in the early 80's my Birthmother was a straight up and down Kiwi living in a largish rural town and had been raised there. My birthfather is still a mystery but I doubt it was Mr Lennon eh eh eh.

I still have the Sound of music on tape, and often put it on to show the Wwoofers that are here, very interesting to see the different reactions, especially from the Germans etc.

My 10 yr old grandaugther loves The Sound Of Music and Mary Poppins and just about knows all the words off by heart and it is hard to watch the movies with her as she speaks the lines over the top of them. She pinched my DVD's when my old machine broke down. When I moved house, I didn't have TV reception yet so got them back to watch on my new DVD machine. HAH!

Got the mum-in-law in to listen. She loved it. She made her own record back in the UK when she was 20. She is now 85. She played the tape for me yesterday. Sounds great but not my type of music - she is an opera buff.
