More Muppet Music!

This Tuesday Disney will release their first Muppet CD - "The Best of the Muppets Featuring the Muppets Wizard of Oz". The CD which not only holds the songs from the upcoming tele-film (which is this Friday at 8/7c on ABC), it also holds some of the Muppets greatest hits and best songs. Even though this CD has not even been released yet, Disney hopes to continue releasing more Muppet albums.

An internal newsletter at Disney stated that over the next two years, Walt Disney Records plans to release three additional Muppets albums. Included in these plans is a Muppet holiday CD which is due out in time for the 2005 holiday season. It is unsure at this time if the album will contain new recordings of holiday songs by the Muppets, existing recordings of holiday songs from the Muppets' past Christmas movies and specials, or a combination of the two. I'll share more details on the upcoming holiday album as it surfaces.

The content of the other two upcoming albums, which are set for a 2006 release, is unsure. It is unsure if these CD will be themed albums, contain new recordings, be collections of unreleased material, be collections of already available songs/soundtracks, or a combination of them all. I'll keep you posted as information on these two additional albums surface.

So...have you heard any news on whether or not they're going to release "The Muppet Movie" ST? It would be silly not to considering it now runs around $100+ on eBay and other second-hand sites.

I just want a decent copy of "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday." Rhino put the "Muppets from Space" version on the 25th Anniversary CD they released a couple years ago. That made me furious. Anyway, keep up the good work.

I think that the show will turn out realy good. I am very excited about seeing it. Will it be coming in theaters? I sure hope so. Ashanti you can sing really good. I hope when i get older i can sing just like you. My parents say i can really sing. Everybody says that. Maybe my dreams will finally come true just like you. I almost forgot my name is Erica and i am only 11 years old. Bye
