    I mean they did went all out for the 35th anniversary with that big musical tributation of many of Sesame Street songs.

    And with the 40th anniversary having a 2 disc DvD, along with speical edition books and toys, you have to wonder if they have any plans for a cd celebrating 40th years of the show ?:(

    Currently nothing has been announced, but that would be a good idea. Maybe make it a two-disc set. Call disc 1 "The Essential Sesame Street", featuring all the best songs that have been released in audio format, and then disc 2 "Unreleased Songs", featuring songs from the show that haven't been released on any albums (like Imagine That, I Love My Elbows, and practically any song from the last ten years).

    Yes!

    KOCH Records and Sesame Workshop will release the Sesame Street: Old School - Volume 1 music collection, a collectible reissuing of 3 early Sesame Street albums (for the first time ever on CD!), on November 10, 2009.
    So on November 10th you'll get the 40th anniversary book ("A Celebration of 40 Years of Life on the Street"), the 40th anniversary DVD set ("40 Years of Sunny Days"), the debut of the new season on PBS, and the old school CD set ("Old School, Vol. 1"). This makes November 10th (which is exactly 40 years, to the day, since Sesame Street premiered) a very exciting day for Sesame fans of all ages.

    All I can say is FINALLY! Man, I have been patiently, going on impatiently waiting for something like this from Koch for some time now. And they seem to have finally given us pure gold. Just like the FR CD collection....

    Again this is going to be cool! I am so happy that they are bringing out all these cool products for the 40th! I will be on the look out for this collection as well :D

    This is good news. Though I think I'll wait to get it (there's gonna be a lot of 40th anniversary merchandise on the same day, christmas is coming, and I've had a lot of recent expenses... I'll probably just get the DVD on release day).

    I have a feeling that volume 2 might have a pattern. I sense it'll have Sesame Street 2, another of the 1970s character albums, and one of the original track albums (like Numbers or Everybody's Record).

    I just started to wonder... Will this set actualy count as a 40th anniversary set (even if the anniversary logo is on the package)? It appears to be the start of a music collection, focusing on just the early years (shouldn't an anniversary collection try to represent all eras?).

    And I realised, due to the set compilng three different albums, the set has one track included twice, ABC-DEF-GHI. But at least that's just one.

    I wonder if any of these Old School music colections will include any of the solo cast member albums. There were a few of those in the 1970s, spotlighting one human cast member.

    Well since this is Volume 1, i would imagine the plan is to release a lot of the old albums from the early years while at the same time making all new albums and re-releasing albums that were from Sesame's previous record labels (as they've been doing beforehand). The 40th anniversary celebration gives them a "reason" to dig back into the vaults and put out the classic long forgotten and/or inaccessible stuff.

    And wow! I can't believe that Bert and Ernie's Sing-Along is actually getting a cd release - i NEVER thought that would happen! My review of this album was one of my very first posts on Muppet Freak where i declared it the Coolest Sesame Street Album of All Time.

    Hey GelflingWaldo, any chance you can tell us when it's up for preorder on Amazon?

    Not anymore. I just got an email from Deep Discount DVD that the products have been discontinued by the manufacturer. I preordered the CDs from them. Anyone else receive this as well?

    This is truly fantastic news, as my old vinyl copies of these albums will not play anymore.
    About 2 years ago, I posted a thread about the possibility of a Sesame Street Karaoke collection. As a DJ and Karaoke host (who plays a lot of kid's parties) I would love to see this happen. Sound Choice karaoke DID put out "C is for Cookie", "Being Green", "Rubber Duckie". "Sing", "I Love Trash" and "ABCDEF-GHI-JKLMNOP-QRST-UVWXYZ" shortly after I made my case, but I would love to see more of the classic songs on karaoke and perhaps Koch is the label to do it. I would love to get up and sing "Telephone Rock" or "Going for a Ride"...am I alone on this? Anyway, thank you to Koch for reissuing 3 of the classic albums...hopefully more is coming!

    Koch is no longer putting these out. I received an email from my preorder for these CD's from Deep Discount CD.com saying they have been discontinued by the manufacturer.

    D' oh! I still wish SOMEONE would put Sesame music on karaoke.

    Argh! Very sorry to hear that. Any kind of classic Sesame St. album release would be welcomed by many of us old-school fans. Our only hope is that maybe they just need more time. We'll see.

    With no reason, I'm guessing... man. Really. To think they could have done this sooner if they didn't rerelease stuff we've already had at a snail's pace.

    Yeah I would love to upgrade the albums I have on vinyl and the ones that were coming out in this canceled set, I only had the Bert and Ernie one. Never owned the other two so I was looking forward to it. Oh well, yeah hopefully it's some kind of contractual thing that's holding things up and it will come out when the time is right.

    I really hope this is still going forward.

    Never say Never....

    It wasn't canceled at ALL! It was just delayed for a long period of time.

    Tough Pigs has the lowdown and the cover art, which goes perfectly with the OS DVD sets.
