    Last year, veteran Muppeteer Jerry Nelson posted on our forum that his dream of releasing a studio album was becoming a reality. Find out all about the release "Truro Daydreams", including Jerry’s thoughts on the songs and photos from the recording sessions of his first studio album.

    "Truro Daydreams" is available for download for $8.99 or $0.99 per track. The "Truro Daydreams" CD can also be ordered on-line from Amazon.com. You can hear "Truro Daydreams" on Muppet Central Radio.

    Here's also a radio interview with Jerry Nelson about "Truro Daydreams" from WCAI FM.

    I've only heard the clips from the radio interview, but I love what I've heard so far. :sing:
  3. Go out and get this CD

    Bought the CD last week. I LOVE it. I think my favorite track has to be "Little Red." Very fun and whimsical. The sheer imagination behind these songs absolutely floors me. Great work Mr. Nelson. :sing:

    I listened to the radio interview last night too - and what I've heard sounds really cool. And they're right - a lot of those songs could easily be heard on one of the Muppet shows. Bravo, Jerry! :sing:

    I've listened to samples and I loved them! It's great hearing Jerry's singing voice again. I am going to buy the album one of these days.

    I looked on iTunes and didn't see it. Anyone find it slash know if it's going to be available on iTunes? I know its available for download on that other site but unfortunately the only means of paying for it that I have right now is an iTunes giftcard which sadly isn't so helpful at the moment.

    There is a link in the first post of this thread where you can download the CD. I did. It's safe.

    I just downloaded and started listening. I wish someone could have taken a picture of my face when I started play "Alligators" and heard Jerry's voice singing. I'm sure it was priceless. :sing:

    So... Ju recognize my siggy now Pwawny Foo-Foo Cakes? :rolleyes:
  13. You can get an actual CD of Jerry's album. It is available at cdbaby.com. You will have to create an account, but they do accept Paypal. The CD comes in a nice jacket, which includes several photos from the recording sessions and others of Jerry. There are also a couple of (short) reviews on the site from Paul Williams and Frank Oz.

    Thanks a ton. I check it out, and listen to some previews and like what I heard so far. I'm wanting to get this.

    Jerry's CD

    First up, I ordered 3 of these CD's right off the bat without listening to a single note from the samples online. I knew it would rock. How can you go wrong with a Jerry Nelson CD? That's like a kid getting a "snow day" off from school.

    I bought one copy for me, another for my girlfriend and one for my uncle. I may get more pretty soon (birthdays coming up).

    From the beginning to the end of the CD is one big musical treat. It's the kind of album you could see either Floyd or Gobo Fraggle having in his collection (if Fraggles had CD players, that is).:smirk: There's a lot of songs that are very Fragglish.

    I have to listen to it again and again...and maybe once more while running some errands tonight. I can't decide which song I like the best..."Tides" is relaxing, "Alligators" is a snappy little number (rimshot), "Little Red" is jazzy and makes you want to get up and dance, "Eye of the Storm" is beautifully done and gets to you (taps chest) right here...I just love 'em all.

    I've heard that the best compliment you could get from Jim Henson was that he would say something is 'lovely'. Out of respect for Jim, I reserve that word for stuff I think has the highest quality.

    "Truro Daydreams" is lovely. I just can't compliment it any higher than that.

    Hopefully, Mr. Nelson will write some more songs and make another CD. I'll buy it!

    I know that I am definately going to buy this CD at some point soon. I just have so many other things to take care of first. God bless you Jerry. I certainly hope that you are still with us here on the forum. If not, you are always in our thoughts and prayers.

    I just wanted to say.
    This album is great. I've finally got it, and listened to it. I'm enjoying it.
    Now I can really see why some people have said the character of Floyd is an extension of Jerry. Can really hear elements of Floyd's character there. It's groovy, its the hippest of the hip. You get the jist.
