BOB McGRATH FROM SESAME STREET! "It was exciting making this record of my favorite Sesame Street songs. I chose these songs not only for your children, but for you parents who grew up watching Sesame Street. Hopefully, you will think back to your early years and have some fun sharing those memories with your child. When you hear these fresh, new arrangements of your old favorites, in the styles of Jazz, Pop, Latin and Motown, perhaps they will inspire you to pick up your child, dance around the room, and even join in a lullaby that says, 'I love you-good night.' Jim Henson and Joe Raposo were warm, sensitive and wonderfully talented people. They were my friends and I had the privilege of working with them for many years. Their brilliant creativity with music and muppetry will continue to delight children throughout the world forever. To them, I dedicate this album." -Bob McGrath

"Like many people, I grew up on Sesame Street. Before we got a local PBS station, one of the commercial ones carried the program. Could you imagine that today? For a brief period, both stations had the program. The program had at least two profound effects on me. One, I learned to read at an early age. Two, the racially diverse cast helped me be more accepting of others. So I have fond memories of the program, and those great songs. Bob McGrath's been on the program since the beginning. He's been a stablizing presence, and a fantastic singer. The title suggests some legal problems. Note that it's not called his favorite Sesame Street Songs. Yet the liner notes, track selection, and even signs on the sleeve tell the whole story. We get quite a mixture of music. A Dixie band appears on "People In Your Neighborhood." He tries the blues on "Put Down The Duckie." You might detect some pop and Motown too. I particularly liked "Morning Town Ride." There are some slow songs too. "See You Tomorrow" makes a nice lullaby. It's a little strange hearing him sing Ernie's classic "Rubber Duckie." But "Being Green" was recorded by both Kermit the frog and Frank Sinatra. "Sing" was a hit for the Carpenters." Mr. McGrath pays tribute to Jim Henson and Joe Raposo in the liner notes. I have the cassette of this album. It's worth getting on CD too! Have fun with these songs. They bring back a lot of great memories."
