Allmusic.com gave Meco Plays the Wizard of Oz a 4 star review:

Wow. How could a review of this LP not first include that word? For fans of Meco, this is a stunning find. …. Few know that he also did a disco version of this famous 1939 film. The album is gloriously ridiculous! Meco puts the merry back into the Merry Old Land of Oz. It sounds very similar to his Star Wars work but with even more Donna Summer cheese thrown in for good measure. Released in 1978 by Millennium Records, The Wizard of Oz also features Harold Wheeler and, amazingly, Meco’s Cantina Band. Standout tracks include “Cyclone,” “Munchkinland,” “Poppies,” and, of course “Over the Rainbow.”
