Editorial Reviews

It was a natural to release the early Sesame Street music on LPs, to reinforce the lessons for kids but most of all because the songs were so darned catchy. This first release in this 40th-anniversary series has The Original Cast Album (a #23 Grammy-winner in '70), Big Bird Sings ('74) and Bert & Ernie Sing Along ('75, Grammy-nominated). Join Kermit for Green ; Ernie for Rubber Duckie ; Big Bird for ABC-DEF-GHI ; Oscar for I Love Trash ; Ernie and Bert for I Refuse to Sing Along ; Cookie Monster for C Is for Cookie , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to get (back) to Sesame Street March 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally, we are starting to hear our memories come flooding back with these classic albums, now in CD format! SESAME STREET OLD SCHOOL, VOLUME 1 has three of the great albums from the '70s, and after listening to them, I can hardly wait for the next set!

And don't be fooled by the cover shown here. The CD cover is not the same as the DVD set.

A listing for the three CDs:

01. Sesame Street - Kids
02. ABC-DEF-GHI - Big Bird
03. I've Got Two - Bob, Susan, Gordon, Mr. Hooper, Oscar, Big Bird
04. Goin' for a Ride - Anything Muppets
05. What Are Kids Called? - Bob, Susan
06. Everybody Wash - Ernie, Bert
07. One of These Things - Bob, Susan
08. Up and Down - Cookie Monster, Herry
09. Bein' Green - Kermit
10. Somebody Come and Play - Kids
11. I Love Trash - Oscar
12. A Face - Bob
13. J-Jump - Kids, with Big Bird's poem
14. People in Your Neighborhood - Bob, Anything Muppets
15. Rub Your Tummy - Gordon
16. Number 5 - Kids
17. Five People in My Family - Anything Muppets
18. Nearly Missed - Susan
19. Rubber Duckie - Ernie

-The last few seconds of 07 are edited out, but the CD does come with the original record ending (including the LP instructions)!

02. A Really Good Feeling*
03. Noodle Song - with Oscar
04. Very, Very Special Letter
05. Big Bird Writes a Poem - with Snuffleupagus and Herbert Birdsfoot
06. Y'All Fall Down - with Ernie, Bert, Cookie and others
07. I Just Adore Four*
08. How Do I Know I'm Here - with Bob, Luis, Gordon and Susan
09. Everyone Makes Mistakes - with Farley
10. The Sound of the Letter "A"

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Sesame Street--FINALLY! Go Joe Raposo! March 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's amazing what the Sesame Workshop can do when they set their minds to it. Suddenly, after parcelling out little pieces of the past, they release three whole albums at once, and give those of us who grew up with this show something that we really like at a price we can afford. Absolutely terrific. Joe Raposo's "Somebody Come and Play" and "J-Jump," two of our all-time favorite songs, are now in the car, on the IPOD. Our own children can now hear it, too.

Please, Sesame Workshop, all we want is for you to unlock what it meant to be a child in the 60s and 70s, when we thought that you actually cared about us. Before Elmo. Before you moved from a Fisher Price house and little plastic toy people to a Sesame Street image on absolutely everything that is marketed to children. Don't continue to over-commercialize our past. Just give us back our memories and this beautiful music and the episodes that meant the world to a four year old who wanted to believe that people could live together.

After all, it's about kids, right? And raising them well? And the message that you portray? It's not about sitting on things in vaults and miserly handing them out one precious drop at a time.

Release it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have! But a few oversights March 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection is a MUST-HAVE for many reasons. The albums have been out of print for too long. As an adult, they're worth having for the nostalgia factor. I loved them as a child, and I loved listening to them again as an adult. Such happy memories. And if you have or know any children, they will love it too. As I listened, I kept thinking of grown nieces and nephews who would have loved these if they were on CD ten or twenty years ago, but now I have to wait until there are some more little ones in the family. It sounds great, and the packaging is nice. But... The collection falls flat in a few places, and here's where the Sesame Workshop could improve with Volume 2, 3, 4, etc:

First, Sesame Street taught me my letters and my numbers. Therefore I can count and I can read, and I LOVE to do it. There absolutely should have been a booklet. Tell us the story about these albums. Many of the cast members and production folks are still around to explain the phenomenon of the early albums. How many albums did the records originally sell? How did the cast feel about them? How did they affect the show? How many Grammy's did they win? How many times were they nominated? How about an introduction by Joan? There is no booklet! I understand that booklets can be costly, but the workshop chose to put three cardboard slip cases inside a large outer case, which if swapped for a booklet and a jewel case, would have been less expensive. More for less.

Second, the first album The Sesame Street Record (Original Cast) was originally issued as a gatefold album with a book inside. The book contained original artwork, pictures, etc. Aside from the complaint above, this was a major oversight. The 1974 reissue with the alternate cover should have also been included.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real thing March 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was hoping the original Sesame Street album was obtainable, and was overjoyed to learn that it was.
I was singing these songs to my baby boy and couldn't quite recall all of the words. This was an album from my childhood. What a blessing to be re-united with something from the deep past that brought so much fun and happiness! And to share it now with my own child is a total treat. It doesn't get any better than this!
