ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
Advertisement
CBS Special Products began releasing MGM soundtracks on CD in 1989, and all were taken directly from the soundtracks of the films themselves rather than from the original pre-recordings or the M-G-M Records albums. Although these CDs had the "complete" soundtracks available for the first time, they were confined to what ended up on the screen in the finished films. Some of the CDs actually included an outtake or two.

In the case of this "Oz" soundtrack, it was presented as the previous records had been, with "music and dramatic selections" from the film. This time expanded to include more dialog and finally the inclusion of "The Merry Old Land Of Oz". The bonus on this CD is the first "official" release of "The Jitterbug" outtake.

As an added bonus, the CD included an offer to purchase a special 50th anniversary poster (see image at right)
