A Review from Dorothy

Psychosocial ,

This soundtrack is amazing!! The spring musical at my high school was The Wiz last year and I played Dorothy. I was a bit skeptical when I first heard that this was the show we would be doing, but after listening to the soundtrack, I immediately fell in love with the music. Even after months of rehearsing didn't make me sick of it. Anyone who likes Wicked, or even the original Wizard of Oz, will love this album. It's not called the "super soul musical" for nothing!

A Classic


I was lucky enough to see the original cast on Broadway when I was 16. Blew my farm girl sox off. Loved the music so much that I bought the cast album on the way out of the theatre (yeppers, that was VINYL,folks!). The tunes still hold up 30 years later. As many films ruin good books, the movie made a mess of this fabulous show. Stephanie Mills singing "Home" still gives me chills.

About Hinton Battle

Though he was much more successful as a dancer and actor, Los Angeles vocalist Hinton Battle did record in the mid-'80s for Quincy Jones' Qwest label. His 1986 LP Untapped didn't generate much excitement or display much commercial clout. ~ Ron Wynn
