I've had this on repeat since I got it. Love, love, love it! Great singing by everyone. I loved how they updated the music from the 1970's play and feature film. This is a fantastic cast album. This will stay on my IPod.

The music is not properly mixed for this soundtrack, and that's a shame because the live telecast was a top notch production on all counts. Every song has decent bass, but the treble tends to be too high and the vocals are poorly balanced with the instrumentation. I played with the controls of 2 different stereos and still could not get a satisfying sound. I'm very disappointed with the production quality of this soundtrack.

I had been eagerly awaiting this soundtrack. After listening to it, I am so glad I bought this. Of the three recordings of "The Wiz" that are available (the original Broadway cast, the soundtrack to the film, and this one), this one is by far the best. The songs are all amazing and well-performed.

Newcomer Shanice Williams is amazing as Dorothy. Her vocal range is amazing. She belt out the finale, "Home" and it is simply breathtaking.
The original Dorothy, Staphanie Mills, is also amazing as Dorothy's Aunt 'Em with her heartfelt rendition of "The Feeling We Once Had."
Elijah Kelly hits all the high notes of the Scarecrow, and he was really fun with "You Can't Win" (although, that is my one critique. That this production used "You Can't Win" from the movie rather than "I was Born on the Day before Yesterday" from the show)
I had heard of Ne-Yo, but I've never heard his music before. So, his performance was pleasantly surprising, especially his emotional rendition of "What Would I Do (if I Could Feel)."
I honestly don't know what I was expecting with David Alan Grier, but his "Mean Ole Lion" blew me out of the water. And then our four leads together were also amazing. Blending perfectly for "Ease on Down the Road," and the new song written for this musical "We Got it"
The rest of the supporting cast was amazing as well. Glee star Amber Riley showed off her amazing pipes with a funked up version of "He's The Wizard." Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba completely surprised me with an emotional and tear-jerking "Believe in Yourself." And Queen Latifah was good as the Wiz.

(From the words of my wife who is a BIG fan of the Wiz past and present) "The Wiz LIVE soundtrack is one of the best things that has happened since sliced bread. Just as good as the previous versions (past stage performances and the 1978 motion picture) with great performances from virtually all of their characters. If you're a big Wiz fan and haven't heard the soundtrack, do yourself a favor and check it out. You won't be sorry."

This album is the cast recording of the 3rd annual NBC Christmas holidays musical. My recording of “The Wiz” is a CD-R transfer that I made from my original LP, so I was eager to have a modern update. I was certainly pleased with the quality of the singing. NBC certainly used singing ability as of the primary casting requirements. The vocalists are nicely paired with a 23-piece orchestra and assisted by a chorus of 15-20 as well as the rather large cast. The attractive CD booklet is beautifully overlaid on pictures from the production and includes the lyrics to all of the songs. I did not see this telecast but am certainly appreciative of effort that was put into having an enjoyable CD as a legacy of the performance.

I ordered this last week and it came a few days later. I bought it as a gift for my beautiful mom. My favorite song is "What would I do" Neyo.

Love it! Great quality and re-make of songs with excellent production!! Using it to teach songs to my voice students. Wish there was a songbook for this. Could not find updated sheet music anywhere.
