Sepia Records celebrates the 75th anniversary of the iconic Wizard of Oz with this anthology CD featuring songs from the movie (and some dropped) performed "live" for a promotional radio broadcast by the stars such as Judy Garland, Bert Lahr, Ray Bolger, and also including recordings by composer Harold Arlen and popular performers of the day such as Glenn Miller and his orchestra.
Most of the tracks here are not from the movie sound track but recordings made to promote the movie such as "live" radio broadcasts. Included are four versions of the ever popular "Over the Rainbow" performed by Judy Garland - the movie version, a "live" version, a "pop" version and finally, one with the Tommy Dorsey orchestra recorded for radio broadcast to sell government war bonds. The big band orchestras are represented here by Glenn Miller, Vincent Lopez and Frankie Masters, each performing their "dance band" version of songs from the movie.

The running time of just over 61 minutes and combination of classic film and studio recordings all of good sound quality makes this an ideal introduction to the work of the early and middle periods of Judy Garland`s career. The sophistication of the Capitol arrangements in comparison to the older and more traditional Decca treatments is easy to notice and musically distinctive. "Last Night When We Were Young" is a definitive performance and Nelson Riddle provided the perfect backing. Whereas "That Old Black Magic" is steeped in 1940s nostalgia and a perfect song for the star to perform.
