    For the first time in 20 years, the entire soundtrack to The Muppet Movie is once again available to purchase on official CD and MP3 from Amazon and also available here on iTunes. (If you currently order the CD from Amazon, you'll receive the MP3 version free.) Thankfully, fans no longer have to pay $100+ for an original CD release of the beloved soundtrack.

    The CD includes the entire original US album featuring original album art and an 8-page lyric book with an introduction by Paul Williams and color photos from the film.

    Dose the new CD of The Muppet Movie Soundtrack have the original vinyl version or the first CD issue version of "Never Before Never Again". Thanks. Bob

    The original US vinyl (1979) and original CD release (1993) both contain the US version of "Never Before, Never Again". This is the version included on the 2013 CD re-release.

    The original UK vinyl (1979) had an alternate version of "Never Before, Never Again" included on that album that was similar to the original UK audio mix for the film.

    Did they use the same cover, for the blu ray for the cd?

    Yes, surprisingly the CD includes the original album art (as seen below) and an 8-page lyric book with an introduction by Paul Williams and color photos from the film.

    I should be getting mine in the mail today (along with the movie on Blu-ray). I'm really excited! I've wanted the full soundtrack for quite some time now, it was cool that some of the songs got released on the "Music, Mayhem, and More!" CD but it's always nice to have the full soundtrack.

    It would be great if Disney would re- release the soundtracks for Great Muppet Caper and Muppet Treasure Island too.

    It's weird that they put the original cover on the soundtrack reissue but not the blu-ray (also weird they didn't just use the blu-ray cover for the soundtrack).

    You may call it weird, but I call it wonderful.

    In all seriousness, it's just fantastic having the Muppets best-selling album of all-time on CD with the original Michael Frith album art. The rainbow on the cover has a shimmering screen print which makes it look fantastic. It has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

    Got my copy here yesterday. The UK version is in the usual plastic jewel case with a pullout booklet. It still sounds great though, even after 35 years. It's a great price too. Got mine delivered for only £6.99
    The text by Paul Williams is great to read too. Few new nuggets of information in there?? Strange that the cd has been released in the UK but not the blu ray yet?? Anyone know a UK date?? Even though I already have it from the USA!!

    Amazon hasn't sent my copy yet, but I can't wait for it to arrive! I've wanted this for years! :)

    In the poll above I voted for 'Rainbow Connection', as it's a classic, but at the moment I think my favorite is 'Never before, never again'. But then again, I love all the songs!

    Is this the same this the US release?

    Any chance of you playing both versions next to each other at a set time on Muppet Central radio, so we all can compare them?

    I think the USA version is in a card folding sleeve, the rainbow has a glossy ink so it shimmers in the light. Which sounds really nice. I might have to get the USA version too?? It is my fave soundtrack of all time after all. And I already have the UK 1979 lp, USA 1979 lp, the 7" singles, the 90's cd and now this new release!

    I'd love to have the LPs too. I think I might have to start collecting all the different releases of this soundtrack!

    Could someone post a photo of the US release, so I can see it?

    I think this is the alternate UK album version, not 100% sure though and haven't got access to a record player to check at the moment.

    Check out this video on YouTube:
