This stemmed from a revival of hillbilly music early in the decade, and drew on Appalachian folk-pop pioneers The Weavers.
Country music in the 1960s was dominated by the Nashville Sound until Merle Haggard changed the national country sound to the Bakersfield Sound.
The rise of the Bakersfield Sound was a popular example of a roots revival in folk music, in which artists and audiences revitalize the traditional music forms of their ancestors, generally as a reaction against dilution of the original culture for mainstream acceptance.

The Music Division has one of the great collections of published music from the American musical theater; it also is the repository of the manuscripts of many of America's show composers.
Secular fl music in the Division goes back as far as dances played by Francis Johnson's famous band of free fls, which was the toast of Philadelphia early in the nineteenth century.

 The Nation, 11/24/1962 - Music by Boretz, Benjamin
The special value of a live concert lies not only in the presence of significant music performed with skill and penetration, but also in the cogent musical intelligence manifested in the construction of the program as a whole.
Ever since composers and performers became functionally, intellectually and artistically separated, the realm of musical performance has been artificial, out of contact with the living growth of music, and sustained mainly by narcissism and inertia.
...The result is that programs are designed to serve the performer rather than the music, and works are chosen, not for their individual qualities, but according to a mechanical process in which each is merely a representative of one of the "types" of music that must be present on' a "standard" program...

 AllRefer.com - atonality (Music: Theory, Forms, And Instruments) - Encyclopedia
Tonality is a form of musical organization that involves a clear distinction between consonance and dissonance, a definite classification of harmonic results as more and less dissonant, and arrangement of tones in a scale that contains common harmonic and melodic functions and goal points.
The gradual rejection of this principle has been apparent since the later 19th cent., when greatly increased use of chromatic harmonies in the music of Liszt, Wagner, and Richard Strauss and the use of nonfunctional harmonies in the music of Debussy almost completely obscured whatever basic tonalities were present in their music.
Atonality is also used by some to designate all music that has discarded the earlier principle of tonality, whether organized in some other way or not.

Unfortunately, the CD carries over some limitations from the vinyl record recording, such as arranging the first three songs as a single track instead of separate tracks, which is mildly annoying without detracting from the quality of the music itself.
I've knocked off a star for that (and because the CD didn't incorporate the longer versions of some of the songs, but kept the shorter versions used on the vinyl record).
It is, and has been one of my top three favorite movies (not just musicals) of all time.

After the huge success of the JTM45 amplifier, a 2x12" combo version was released to satisfy popular demand and the now legendary 1962 Combo was born.
Again the valve rectification, pioneered by Marshall in the early 1960s, was responsible for helping to achieve the famed output stage compression and sustain exhibited uniquely by both the JTM45 and 1962.

Robert Preston repeats his legendary stage performance as fast-talking con man Harold Hill, who goes from town to town selling citizens on starting a "boy's band," then extracts money from them by ordering instruments and uniforms, with the promise that he'll teach the kids how to be musicians.
But Marian becomes Hill's staunchest ally when her young brother Winthrop (Ronny Howard), sullen and withdrawn since the death of his father, exuberantly comes out of his shell at the prospect of joining Hill's band; and Marian's budding romance with the charming but unreliable Hill ultimately brings her out of her own shell as well.

In fact, the BBC was taken aback by its success - it enjoyed one of the highest rankings of all time – 98% of viewers expressing satisfaction.
It was filmed in 1962 at a time when Elgar’s music – and, it has to be said, British music in general, was in the doldrums.
The most serious difficulties are the tedious over-stretched visuals of the funeral of King Edward VII shown over the Larghetto of the Second Symphony, the over-emphasis of World War II tragedies and Russell’s assertion that Elgar had consequently turned against his Pomp and Circumstance March No.1.

I became a Beatles' fan rather late in life, relatively speaking, in part because my taste in music tends to veer to the classical/orchestral film score end rather than rock.
