Somewhere Over The Rainbow



Musical Wonderland
ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Another CD compilation of film songs released by Rhino Records. This set is nice in that it includes performances from Warner Bros. and RKO musicals as well as MGM musicals.

Oddly enough, disc one contains two "bonus tracks" from the non-musical films Casablanca and Doctor Zhivago. As much as I enjoy these two tracks, they seem out of place in this collection. But that's a minor quibble. The set is a joy to listen to due to it's great sound quality.

This same compilation was released in Europe by WEA International as "Musical Wonderland" (see image at right).

All images on this page from the collection of Scott Brogan.
