This new CD collection features three classic albums - "The Original Cast Record", "Big Bird Sings", and "Bert & Ernie Sing Along" - fully restored, remastered, and even featuring the original artwork.

Will they be releasing the Oscar Sings album again?... I'm not even sure that's what it was called. I had it on cassette growing up, and I wish I could hear the genie of the toothpaste bit again like it was on that track. I'm glad these albums are out! I'm going to be looking for them :)

Has there been some sort of delay on this? It doesn't show on Amazon, and even Koch's own site doesn't list it.

Now, apparently, they've excised any mention of the Old School Volume 1 CD set from Amazon, and even the Muppet Wiki. What gives??????

I work in a library, and I checked through Baker & Taylor (our vendor), and found this message under Publish Status:

Version not available - may be available under another name

The ISBN for the item is 6313263588. I've done some searches using this number through other sources like Barnes & Noble and the Library of Congress and haven't found anything on it yet. If anybody else finds something, please post it here. I was really looking forward to getting this! :-(
