SESAME STREET – “Sesame Street Fever” & “Sesame Disco” LPs (1978/9)

I’ve recently gone through a huge Jim Henson re-appreciation phase — and somehow forgot that there were countless Sesame Street LPs, doctor some of which I had as a small child, malady and wore out the grooves of by playing over and over again.

Amazing how things that are some important to you at certain ages get completely buried by the mind, and when they’re unearthed at random decades later, it makes you feel silly for having forgotten them in the first place.

Anybody out there have any more of the Sesame Street albums besides these? For some reason, it’s been tough going on tracking them down in the blogosphere.

    Hey Bret–Many years ago when you were getting rid of all your records you gave me a Sesame Street record called “Letters, Numbers, and Signs” that you seemed fond of. I still have it, if you want it back for digitizing. Or maybe you have a digital copy anyway, but if you need the record, it’s just chillin’ in my bookcase.

    Now I’ve seen it all. I was one of the kid singers on Sesame Disco. I think I was about 12 at the time. Pretty funny to see here.

    “Me Lost Me Cookie At the Disco” is a stone cold classic.

    Oh, heck yeah. Picked up a Sesame St Greatest Hits in the early 90s, been picking up the occasional Muppets/Sesame LPs ever since. I posted a track from Sesame St Disco a couple years ago on WFMU’s 365 Project cuz that whole classic is inexplicably OOP, tho many are in print.

    Most recently rescued Miss Piggy’s Aerobique Exercise Workout Album from Amoeba’s 99cent vinyl section. Hey, I should post that one on my blog…
