The Wozard of Iz

The Wozard of Iz is an album of electronic music composed and realized by Mort Garson and conceived and written by Jacques Wilson. It parodies the movie The Wizard of Oz (1939), setting the characters in the 1960s with a hippie mindset. Throughout the story the main character, Dorothy, seeks out "where it's at".

The album was released the year following another collaboration between Garson and Wilson, The Zodiac: Cosmic Sounds, a concept album issued by Elektra Records.
