*Lyrics Excerpt* - "We're off the see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!"

To be sure - The songs from the 1939 musical fantasy film The Wizard of Oz have certainly taken their place among the most famous and instantly recognizable American songs of all time. And, this film's principal song, Over the Rainbow, is perhaps the most famous song ever written for a film. Music and lyrics were by Harold Arlen and E.Y. "Yip" Harburg, who won an Academy Award for Best Song for "Over the Rainbow".

Released in 1995 - This 2-disc set features not only all the songs, but also all of Herbert Stothart's background music, as well as outtake pieces of music, the opening and closing credits music, all of the songs cut from the film during its sneak previews, and demos for the songs.

Unfortunately, the one vocal not heard on these discs is the guards' chanting of "O-Ee-Oh! Yeoo-Oh!" outside the Wicked Witch's castle, since only the instrumental music track is included here.

Anyway - If you're a nostalgic fan of The Wizard of Oz, then listening to the many tracks on this 2-disc set will certainly bring back some very fond memories of the motion picture.
