“The Wizard Of Oz” by Meco – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Meco Monardo has been producing and arranging disco music since the early 70’s with artists like Don Downing, Gloria Gaynor and Carol Douglas. His first solo album was a very successful disco-pop version of “Star Wars” in 1977 which helped to bring the magic to disco music of the period. In his fourth project he covers the soundtrack to the classic “The Wizard Of Oz” – his disco version includes the extensive storyline tied into the various excerpts and songs from the 1939 film production.
I have taken scenes from the 1978 film “The Wiz” – an adaption of the 1974 Broadway play which gives the “The Wizard Of Oz” an African-American experience on the tale. The film stars Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell and Ted Ross. The Meco version based on the original and the clips from “The Wiz” are worked in synch to create the adventure and magic all over again.
The film was directed by Sidney Lumet
