AllMusic Review by

No film is more beloved by generations of American audiences than The Wizard of Oz. Shown annually for numerous years by the networks, its main songs have become performance staples for several jazz singers and instrumentalists. This 1991 CD offers the ultimate treatment for anyone captivated by the film; it contains the full 1939 NBC radio broadcast of the song score, plus the only recorded performances of Bert Lahr's full "King of the Jungle" routine, composer Harold Arlen playing and singing "Over The Rainbow" with Judy Garland, an alternate "Over the Rainbow" recording, and the full promotional trailer.
