Hey you guys! (no pun intended - yeah right!) Anyways, just picked up the new DVD Set "The Best of The Electric Company - Volume 2". As expected, it is a nice companion set to the 1st Box Set. It contains most of those "filler" sketches and songs that missed the first box set such as "The L-Y Song", "Grease (This Town)", "Happy Birthday Miss Jones You sure got nice...Bones!", "The Six Dollar and Thirty Nine Cent Man", "Sweet Sweet Sway", "Knock Knock Rock", "We are out of Sweet Rolls", "The Kid's A Hot Shot" The Director: "All For One And One For All" -- More "Slow Reader" messages (ex. Keep of The Grass, Do Not Bother This Giant Person) as well as a "LIVE - Version of the Slow Reader with Skip Hinnant and Jim Boyd) --- Also of Note -- We finally get a sketch with Pedro (of Pedro's Plants) and his side kick Maurice the plant. Of course we get some repeats that were on the last set: examples: "Snore, Sniff, Sneeze", "Slient E", "Unlock your love, Unbutton Your Mind", "Boom", etc. and sketches like the one where Skip Hinnant is blind folded and each character brings him an object that starts with "GR" --- and of course "Greedy Gregory Grabbed The Green Grapes", etc. It IS missing some old favorites such as "Billy Lick A Lolly", "Sock Hop", Jennifer of The Jungle singing "Bananas", Short Circus singing "Tilt", "Spidey Meets the Crusher", Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (Frustrated Conductor) (ie. That is Not the Note) I also notice that there are more episodes from the 2nd and 5th seasons on this set -- more than the last set (2 episodes a piece for each season). What IS THE REAL TREAT is the fact that 5 of the 7 or 8 original actors appear in new interviews and also do the introductions to each episode and trivia spots in between the episodes. ---- Jim Boyd (J Arthur Crank, Blue Beetle, Paul), Hattie Winston (Valerie The Librarian), Skip Hinnant (Fargo North), Judy Graubart (Jennifer of The Jungle, Winnie), and Louis Avalos (Dr. Doolats, Pedro). And I have to say it...boy they look a lot different in their older years. Some look better than others but it is nice to see them all give their insight to the production and experience on The Electric Company. Very interesting. Too bad Lee Chamberlain, Morgan Freeman & Bill Cosby couldn't have praticpiated on this set. Maybe the next one Bottom line: It's another winner and a great companion set to the first volume. Hopefully more will come on it's way so we can at least see 4 volumes!!
