The Wizard of Oz is a treasured part of our cinematic heritage; a colourful fantasy with a succession of perfectly integrated songs, and a glowing tribute to the irreplaceable Judy Garland. Her natural acting skill and magical way with a song were very much in place even at the tender age of 17, and no matter how many times you hear "Over the rainbow" (the most famous song to have almost ended up on the cutting room floor), her tender, wistful performance never fails to cast its spell. The rest of Arlen and Harburg's joyful score also refuses to age; sequences like Dorothy's introduction to the Munchkins, and the solos for the three characters she meets on the Yellow Brick Road are as sophisticated as they are amusing. It is also the little details in Herbert Stothart's background score, like the furious peddling theme for Miss Gulch, that add much to the film's priceless charm. This handsomely packaged, comprehensive two-disc set contains the entire score, as well as out-takes and alternate takes, making it a wonderfully potent souvenir of a timeless classic. A single-disc album of highlights from the score is also available --Robert Seeley

Please note that all of the extra tracks on this disk (apart from the ones noted) have NO dialogue on them. Many people ( including me! ) have made that mistake, but this doesn't stop it being the best Oz soundtrack out to date.

It has all the background music from the original 1939 film, as well as some deleted scenes and extended parts and plenty of extras to keep real fans busy!

Some special features are the outtakes and deleted numbers like the reprise of Over the Rainbow sang beautifully by the 16 year old Judy Garland and the deleted jazz number 'The Jitterbug'.

The best Oz collection out to date, you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x99acf768) out of 5 stars The DEFINITIVE presentation of the music of Oz on CD. 26 May 2006
By takemehome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's been nearly 11 years since Rhino Movie Music and TCM Music teamed up to bring two editions of the awesome soundtrack from this movie to the public. One edition is a single-disc version and only contains the songs and a few bits of score. (However, it contained ALL of the songs, including outtakes and extended versions.) This is often found for around $10 and is a great buy for the casual fan or one who rarely shops online and can't find the 2-disc in a store. Although I feel more could have been included on it, it's a nice little package, especially for the kids.

However, Rhino and TCM also released a deluxe 2-CD edition featuring ALL of the music recorded and some great supplemental material as well. This deluxe version comes in a long box with the two discs, a tracklisting and short paragraph on what's inside on the back, and a special book that not only explains the music, making of the film, and the stories behind those who created it, but also contains pages for the tracklisting that includes the vocalists on the tracks and even dates of recording. One chapter even offers an annotated film guide, with notes on where the tracks on the CD appear in the film, as well as details on the deleted/extended materials presented here. Also included is a plethora of photos sprinkled all through the book.

These two discs contain a total of 82 (!) tracks, 59 of which are the songs and score. Almost immediately, you're treated to extended pieces of score as well as score that was entirely deleted. In addition, some of the songs we all know and love contain additional material, such as the Scarecrow's deleted dance from If I Only Had A Brain. There are even three deleted songs presented on this set: The Jitterbug, a reprise of Over The Rainbow, and Ding-Dong! Emerald City/The Trimuphal Return To Emerald City. The fact that all this material has been completely preserved and is made available to the public is to be commended.

If you think the songs and score will be all you get on these CDs, you're wrong. Starting with Disc 2, Track 14, you're treated to 23 demos, alternate/partial takes, alternate versions, orchestral angles, and other rarely heard materials such as a partial take of Over The Rainbow where Judy Garland messes up, a take of Over The Rainbow that doesn't make it to the final film, a demo of the deleted Jitterbug number, and even an alternate version of the end credits music.

The sound, for the most part, is absolutely amazing and clear. Some tracks have a minimal amount of tape hiss. Enough that you notice it, but not enough to detract from the listening experience. Also, it sounds as if some of the sources were slightly deteriorated, as on some of the instrumental tracks, there's a considerable amount of warp. However, for audio that at the time was over 55 years old, this soundtrack is amazingly clear and crisp and vibrant-sounding.

Rhino and TCM are to be commended for their beautiful treatment of the music from greatest family film of all time on CD. If you're a casual fan, don't care about anything but the songs and most important score pieces, or just don't want to pay this much, the single-disc CD soundtrack is an excellent package. However, if you're a hardcore fan of the film such as myself, you definitely want to spend the extra cash and pick up this lovingly created box set. Just to have the complete score alone is worth the price, but in addition, the supplemental audio materials and the excellent box and beautiful packaging make it all worth every penny. I plan to sell my single-disc soundtrack ASAP, as I no longer need it.

HASH(0x98d9bfd8) out of 5 stars The BEST "Oz" soundtrack yet!!! 17 May 2003
By Kenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a true Oz fan! I collect everything that I find (unless it's not in my price range) and when i saw this I couldn't pass it up, even though it was a bit pricier than I had expected. Trust me, this was well worth the price!!! I love this CD and the book that came with it is more than just a bonus, it is a God send! If your an Oz fan this is a must! You've got to have this. Don't just think because you have other soundtracks of Oz and such that you don't need to buy this! This is the only CD that has ALL the songs including the outtakes, and even half takes and the only one I have seen with a 52 page book! What more could you ask for?! This is truely a must have! If you are an Oz fan and/or collector be sure to pick this up to day. You won't be sorry!

HASH(0x997ff534) out of 5 stars Lions, and Tigers, and Bears...OH MY, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SET! 15 Jun. 2007
By Gregory E. Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is IT, folks! The ULTIMATE Wizard of OZ (aka, WOO) soundtrack/score album!

Man, this is just Beautiful, believe me! What's amazing to me is how a man of 60 years (almost) has this bank in his brain for so many elements from this absolutely magnificent film. (How the Hell could Gone With the Wind have even been considered as "Best Picture" against this Timeless Classic? I think the intervening years have proven the "MPA" very wrong on this one. There is no way that this picture, and it's most wonderful musical soundtrack/score do not go to the top of the "Best Movies of All Time" list. Right up there right behind "Citizen Kane", which would make it #2, I believe.

The folks at Rhino Records have taken this material and have lovingly and carefully cleaned it all up, and remastered it with the utmost care, and then, they have created a truly beautiful, deluxe package to "keep" it in! Those of us who treasure all things "OZ", especially from the movie, will find themselves thinking "I wish I'd bought this before!" You will be so pleased when you hear things that have never been released before from the score on records, LP's, previous CD's, etc. Truly a Priceless Album that you will delight in and treasure. What a treat when one is having a "bad day" to pop this into their player and be transported to the wonderful land of "Oz" for an hour and a half.....the best stress reliever I know! Order yourself a copy of this beautifully packaged and presented set, and ENJOY! ~operabruin

HASH(0x98cfcc6c) out of 5 stars Definitive! 12 Dec. 2000
By Bluebird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best soundtrack of OZ available. What's with the complaints about the high price? The length of the two CDs combined is longer running time of the film and the booklet which comes with it is well researched and full of fascinating photos. Pass by the shorter single CD versions and get this one. You'll not be disappointed. All of the original score is here, including the cut scenes: the wind machine, the witch's threats, the Jitterbug, the attack of the bees on the Tin Man, the return to the Emerald City......and of course the wonderful Judy Garland outtake of "Over the Rainbow" in which she coughs in the middle of a take.

HASH(0x99052e10) out of 5 stars MUST HAVE FOR OZ FANS 16 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably the best recording that i have ever heard of OZ. It is truly amazing how they have preserved the copies of the outtakes, numbers that didn't make the show, etc. I believe that if you are an OZ fan, or if just new to this movie/musical, this is a must have. The price may be a tad high, but it is worth it.
