*Note* - (Movie soundtrack trivia) - With the one exception of George Chakiris - All of the other actors who starred in this 1960 Musical/Drama actually had their singing voices dubbed by professional singers (these vocalists were never given any screen credit for this).

Released in 1961 - This particular recording spent 54 solid weeks at #1 on Billboard's album charts. This is the longest run at top position in record history.

With music composed by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics penned by Stephen Sondheim - "West Side Story" was a sure-fire Grammy-award winner that has gone platinum 3 times.

Out of this CD's 19 tracks - Two of my favourites are - "Tonight" and, of course, "Somewhere".
