This a the soundtrack to the classic Judy Garland movie which I think has stood the test of time well it looks a little dated but you have to remember it was written many years ago also so the writer wrote about his world not the world of today.

Plus none of the technnolgy we have was arounf to make it the film any better.

The songs are well known even song that did not make the final cut are like the Jigger Bug, which can be found on the Internet.

If you like the film this soundtrack give you more than just the movie songs it give song that were deleted and have only been found thanks to the Internet and studio vaults.

This CD was fantastic value. It's the original film soundtrack and has the added bonus of not only including all your favourites from this classic film but also almost the complete film score. If you have a relative who loved the film this is an ideal present or if you are involved in a production or know someone who is, it will really support them.
Buy this and your guaranteed to be singing some where over the rainbow in less time than it takes to follow the yellow brick road !

When writing reviews for Amazon, I first like to clarify the product as quite often there is confusion about different versions. There are numerous CDs of The Wizard Of Oz, they are with the exception of one taken from LPs and 78s. Depending on the care taken with the mastering they can sound ok or dreadful. The best one (This one) is the Rino/MGM version, released on Warners in the states, and Sony in the uk. There is minor differences in the front cover design,but they both have the same photo of Judy pointing an index finger in the air, behind the suprised lion, scarecrow and tin man.
The CD has been carefully re-mastered from the original tracks preserved in the MGM vaults, many of the songs are extended versions, there is even the odd out-take. There is a 12 page booklet about the film and music, and lots of photos. Its a shame they decided to issue the CD in mono, when the DVD/BluRay has 5.1 sound. (Yes even in 1939 movies were recorded on multiple tracks, then mixed down to mono for the film.
Anyway back to business, the sound in fine, you have all the songs, and a good bit of the background score. Buy this version and don't waste time on inferior products.

I bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter who already has the DVD and her Dorothy outfit!
It is amazing that a film made in 1939 still has such an effect, but it does and that is as much to do with the music as the film
A good CD, with some of the fill in music included
