G98.7FM Entertainment News
Motown Universal has dusted off and remastered the original 1978 album from the legendary movie “The Wiz” and will be released for the for the first time, on Friday November 27th!
Right after Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Richard Pryor and other legends finished filming the theatrical version of the Broadway phenomenon The Wiz, released in 1978, Motown Records sent Ross back to the studio to record an album of all of the musical’s songs — including those sung by her cast mates.
The album was to have been called “Diana Ross Sings Songs From The Wiz”, and was scheduled for release in early 1979 as a companion piece to the movie’s Quincy Jones-produced soundtrack album, but Motown Motown subsequently cancelled the release, due to the film’s under-performance at the box office.
The new release includes a beautiful booklet with never-before-published photos of Ross, and a new essay written by the reissue’s producers Andrew Skurow, George Solomon, and Harry Weinger.
