These 19 Sesame Street themed tracks have been collected from a number of unusual sources. Some are taken from the 70+ official releases that have been put out over the years, others have been donated by supporters of Funky Frolic (Budd and Mike via Frayker) and the last few songs come from my own collection. The Roosevelt Franklin album is an interesting one, he was a short lived jive-talking character that was shown the door because of the potential bad influence he might have on children. There is a few disco themed SS records and I have included some of those tracks here plus there is a bonus comedy bit by Paul F. Tompkins to finish proceedings. If there is enough requests I might be encouraged to post some of the albums I used to put this compilation together.

Great comp! Really good range of music styles - all fun and upbeat!
Kermit was right It's Not That Easy 'Bein Green' -I have sift and sort through loads of trash and put them into seperate boxes.. If one thing is out of place the 'jobs worth' binman don't collect it!!

Glad to see you added 'Man On The Move'; sorry that I don't know who the composer is for that cut.

Such fond memories! I used to watch SS back in the day before heading out for school. They simply don't make 'em like they used to.

Unknown? Dude.

Pinball Number Count is composed by Walt Kraemer and performed by the Pointer Sisters.

Which does not take away from the epicness of this compilation, tho. Nice work.

Thank you! Always a pleasure to listen to Roosevelt Franklin ;-)

Haven't downloaded yet but I will! I always wanted to obtain the "electronic" and flute cue used for the little red ball counting the number 3 as it traveled through a scale "roller-coaster" and then gets grinded up at the end. It almost sounds like "When I'm Not Near The Girl I Love" but there are subtle differences. There;s a YouTube video of this piece here:

Thanks!! Great blog!! I have a gazillion KPMs I should contribute! All at 320 kbps and properly tagged!
