Question about 1975 Christmas album...

    "Merry Christmas from Sesame Street" (1975) was my favorite album as a kid. I don't think my parents have their old copy anymore. Has this ever been re-issued on CD or cassette, or is it LP only?

    It was also released on cassette (which I have).

    I believe that a similar Christmas CD was released when "Elmo saves Christmas" came out. The CD had some of the same songs, however some of the classic characters were dubbed over to add the modern characters like Elmo, Zoe, and Hoots the Owl in their place. :(

    The original version (and over 150 Muppet holiday songs) will begin playing on Muppet Central Radio tha day after Thanksgiving.

    I had this album on 8-track (!), and the CD released a few years ago is very similar, with a few characters dubbed over for modern continuity reasons. It's still a really cool album to listen to, because it's such a blast from the past--especially the Sesame Street Christmas Pageant that's on it (Oh welcome, Oh welcome, to our little play...)

    :p :( :grouchy:

    It was sort of funny to hear the recent Sesame Street Christmas CD because people like Olivia and Dave were edited out and replaced by Hoots and Elmo...I think they must have had Kevin Clash come in one day and fix the whole CD by himself! :p

    Speaking of which, I was listening to some Sesame Street music samples from Amazon yesterday and I heard Elmo singing Big Bird's famous ABC-DEF-GHI song. Freaky.

    My two favourite tracks would be The Twelve Days Of Christmas and Luis and Maria's song Sulludo.

    Thanks Boober!
    I had the album as a kid. The 2 tracks I especially wanted to listen to were "The Night Before Christmas On Sesame Street" by David (Northern Calloway) & Mr. Hooper's Christmas story by Mr. Hooper (Will Lee)
    I'll be the first to admit I got a bit misty eyed when listening to the second one :cry: but it was nice to hear the grandfatherly like voice of Mr. H. Also, I liked hearing David's voice again.
    I'm sure they can both R.I.P knowing they made kids happy.

    Merry Christmas from Sesame St. (and from me too!)

    Thanks everyone who offered suggestions on finding the cassette. Especially to the person who offered to make a copy for me. I'm listening to the CD right now and I'm thrilled. My family and I have listened to this album every year for 21 years. The tradition lives on! Merry Christmas everyone! :)

    Olivia also sang"True Blue Miracle"on the 1978 TV special"Christmas Eve On Sesame Street".Two other things that were repeated in that special were Oscar's musical number"I Hate Christmas",and Mr.Hooper's story of Ernie and Bert. :p :(
