Following "I Think It's Going to Rain Today," another track has surfaced from Release Me, Barbra Streisand's career-spanning collection of previously unreleased songs: "Home," a moving anthem from The Wiz, the 1974 musical based on The Wizard of Oz.

Streisand has re-recorded the bass, drums, and piano for the song's inclusion on Release Me, but the iconic entertainer initially recorded "Home" with the intention of including it on 1985's The Broadway Album.

Until Release Me is released Sept. 25 on vinyl and Oct. 9 on CD and MP3, preview Streisand's "Home" exclusively on Advocate.com and then compare it below to climactic snippets from other renditions of the standard by Diana Ross from The Wiz movie and Stephanie Mills from The Wiz on Broadway, plus Melinda Doolittle, Regine Velasquez, and Whitney Houston. Who brought it home best?
