The landmark John Coltrane album "My Favorite Things" (Atlantic SD1361) includes the original classic studio version of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic. It was the first LP to feature Coltrane playing soprano saxophone. An edited version of the title song became a hit single that gained radio popularity in 1961.
