60th Anniversary 2022 Remastered Editon (Strereo/Mono)
Rhino is celebrating the 60th anniversary of John Coltrane's classic My Favorite Things with a deluxe edition on 180-gram vinyl double LP. This version features new stereo and mono mixes remastered from the original tapes. The mono mix, once believed lost, was rediscovered recently and is included in this new edition.
The LPs come packaged in a replica of the original record sleeve with a booklet that features rare photos, ephemera from the period, and new liner notes written by acclaimed music journalist/author Ben Ratliff.Released in March 1961, My Favorite Things was the first album to feature John Coltrane playing soprano saxophone in addition to his regular tenor. His soprano takes the lead on two of the album's four songs, including his unforgettable rendition of the title track, which Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote for The Sound of Music musical.
An edited version of the 14-minute original was a radio hit that spring. The song's success helped introduce Coltrane to a broader audience, while the album went on to inspire future generations of fans. In recognition of the album's lasting artistic and historical significance, My Favorite Things was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998 and gold certified for lifetime sales in the U.S., in 2018.
